JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Less than a week before Zimbabwe's presidential election, the campaign of opposition candidate Morgan Tsvangirai would appear to be in shambles. He has been charged with high treason - a crime punishable by death - for an alleged plot to assassinate President Robert G. Mugabe. His supporters have been beaten up by mobs. Police officers have shot at his motorcade. But first as a labor leader and now as a political candidate, Tsvangirai (CHAN-ger-i) is one of the few Zimbabweans who has been able to stand up to Mugabe's regime.

With its latest -- and biggest -- issue, Antietam Review enters its second decade. Based in Hagerstown, the Review is Maryland's only serious, nationally circulated literary magazine.This time it publishes eight short stories, the work of 16 poets (one by a Romanian, Iona Ieronim, in translation) and 21 black-and-white photographs. There are interviews with Diane Wolkstein, storyteller, and Joyce Riser Kornblatt, professor of creative writing at the University of Maryland College Park.Still basking in the glow of its inclusion in a recent "Best 50 Litmags From 50 States" listing, Antietam Review has received close to 500 verbal and photographic works from the United States and abroad for its 1994 issue.

HIGH TREASON 2: THE GREAT COVER-UP. The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy. By Harry Edward Livingstone. Carroll & Graf. 656 pages. $25.95. YOGI Berra is supposed to have said, "It ain't over 'til it's over." He's also credited with, "It's deja vu all over again." Both expressions suit "High Treason 2," Baltimore author Harry Edward Livingstone's sequel to his best-selling book, "High Treason."Not only does the beat go on; it's the same old beat. I seem to have read -- or at least heard -- most of it before, and what little I haven't (notably, that John F. Kennedy was "wrongly diagnosed and treated for Addison's disease and would likely have died in office" had he been re-elected)

HIGH TREASON 2. Harrison E. Livingstone. Carroll & Graf. 420 pages. $22.95. The principal problem with "High Treason 2" is the difficulty the reader has trying to make out its thesis. In his latest book on the JFK assassination, Baltimore resident Harrison Livingstone takes for granted a high-level government conspiracy. Various motives for the murder, including escalation in Vietnam, are tacked on at the beginning and end for context. The meat of this book, however, revolves around what happened -- or did not happen -- to President Kennedy's body after the shots rang out in Dallas.

That Tom Paine, he's an atheist, cried the mossbacks of his own century. And even those who admired the author of "Common Sense" and "The Rights of Man" often thought of him as a secularist, wrapped up in human dignity, equal rights, freedom of belief, civic decency, reason.But the English-born anti-monarchist who helped ignite the American and French revolutions had God in his thoughts too. He held that "God literally permeate[s] the universe," Jack Fruchtman Jr. points out in his thought-provoking new book, "Thomas Paine and the Religion of Nature" (Johns Hopkins University Press, $32.50)

WILL THE WORLD accept the idea that John F. Kennedy's death was an unintentional homicide? That the bullet hitting him in the back of the skull came from the gun fired, inadvertently, by a Secret Service bodyguard riding in the car immediately behind the presidential limousine?Such is the thesis advanced by Howard Donahue, a Towson gun expert, in the new book "Mortal Error," by Bonar Menninger (St. Martin's Press, $23.95). On logic -- that is, consistency with the known facts in the case -- Mr. Donahue's explanation is without rival.
