ALBANY, N.Y. - While most housing designs are based on rectangular shapes, some homes have an unusual eight-sided floor plan. These octagonal houses have been turning heads for more than 150 years. The concept of the octagonal house was idealized by Orson Squire Fowler in his 1853 book A Home for All: Or a New, Cheap, Convenient and Superior Mode of Building. Fowler, a phrenologist who deciphered the contours and bumps on the human skull, advocated octagonal buildings because the walls of an octagon enclose more area than a square or rectangle with equal wall space.

Cut. Slash. Kill. The Hunted has lots of that, but not much else. An ode to the nobility of killing things with your hands and eschewing such unfair accoutrements as guns (sharp things apparently are OK, so long as they're crafted by hand), the movie makes almost no sense whatsoever and should be seen only by those who have long wondered who would win a knife fight between stars Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro. Director William Friedkin seems to be making some statement here about how violence is OK, maybe even glorious, so long as it's inflicted mano a mano.

THE SNAKE, THE CROCODILEAND THE DOG.Elizabeth Peters.Warner Books.340 pages. $19.95. To a high-spirited person, adventure can be addictive. At the beginning of Elizabeth Peters' latest report on the doings of Amelia Peabody Emerson, the eminent British Victorian archaeologist is moaning how quiet things have become. Several times before the novel ends, she comes close to regretting that thought.Clearly, the adventure that befell her when she and her husband returned to Egypt was more than she bargained for. After all, she is merely adventure-loving, not psychotic.

Judging by the sprawling yet solid show that opens today at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the seven finalists in this year's Janet & Walter Sondheim Prize competition are all such top-tier talents that choosing a winner will be a serious challenge. Selected from a field of 320 applicants, the finalists are sculptor Richard Cleaver, photographer Frank Hallam Day, animator Eric Dyer, artist/musician Geoff Grace, conceptual artist Baby Martinez, painter Tony Shore and video artist Karen Yasinsky.
