Friday's "Forgotten" Books (and magazines and stories): the links to the reviews for 3 March 2017--more new links

Patti Abbott should be picking up the gathering of links duty again next Friday, though as always it's a pleasure to put these lists together (if a time-consuming one). This week, Hammett's The Thin Man just narrowly edges out several other strong contenders for being the least Forgotten. And if I've missed your or someone else's review for this week, please let me know in comments or via email or FB. Thanks, everyone.  TM
