An Overlooked straggler and some other blogposts of particular interest:

Juri Nummelin checks in with the 1998 (delayed in release till 1999, and then in Japan for this US film) Trance, among the Tuesday's Overlooked, and

Ed Gorman posts/reprints Barry Malzberg's vignette "Cornell" with a note explicating its origins and Barry's relation with Cornell Woolrich, and

Don Herron has been posting some newspaper pages from the syndicated serialization of a Dashiell Hammett "Continental Op" story or so, from materials John Squires has been turning up through online searches of such databases as the Fulton History site...

And Jackie Kashian's The Dork Forest yesterday is even more engaging than usual, with a long conversation on US comedy between the World Wars with actor/writer Frank Coniff and writer Ben Schwartz, and a performance by musical comedian Nick Thune, from a live performance at Meltdown Comics in LA.
