"Episodes from the Early Life of Archibald McCandless M.D. Scottish Public Health Officer." Based on invented historical documents, Gray's delightful novel-within-a-novel chronicles a mad scientist's attempt to create the perfect companion -- and another young doctor's jealous love for the new creation -- in 19th-century Edinburgh. Includes the author's wonderfully strange illustrations.  (SCT173, $14.95)
