Friday's Books (etc.), alphabetized by author and/or editor (and, failing that, publisher) for August, so far: new links

The ongoing August alpha by author(s), editor(s), publisher(s) index: "Lester del Rey" under one of his other pseudonyms

Douglas Winter wanted to know if there was any way the FFB items might be arrayed by author, to make finding or refinding a given item easier. I told him I thought so, but it would be extra work for me (one can, if searching for a specific title or writer/editor/publisher, also search on the blogs in question). Nonetheless, it didn't seem like the worst possible idea, so this might go forward as a monthly summary/reordering of the weekly roundelay...added to over the course of the month. 

In some cases below, you'll do better to click on the title or author/editor/publisher of the work in question, rather than the contributor's name, which might still take you to the first item they dealt with as listed for that week. People vastly more famous for their pseudonym than their real name are listed under that pseudonym...or, in Cele Goldsmith Lalli's case, in the most famous form of her name (albeit not in fantastic fiction circles), and that listed under Lalli.

Friday's "Forgotten" Books: the links to the reviews: 17 August 2018

This week's books, unfairly (or sometimes fairly) neglected, or simply those the reviewers below think you might find of some interest (or, infrequently, you should be warned away from); certainly, most weeks we have a few not at all forgotten titles.  Founder Patti Abbott is taking a break from listmaking for a if I've missed yours or someone else's, please let me know in comments...
