Thanks for hosting this week.

Todd Mason said...

You're quite welcome! Thanks for checking in and commenting.

Kevin R. Tipple said...

Thanks for hosting.

My Basketry review was up way earlier in the week and is not my FFB review.

The actual FFB review just went up and is on UNDER A RAGING MOON by Frank Zafiro. The direct link is:

I've updated the link on my review from Patti's page to your.

(And you'd be shocked how many people haven't read M. R. James!)

Yvette said...

Thanks for doing hosting duties, Todd. I'm running late, as usual.

I'll have the review up and running soon as I can. I'm working on it now.

Obviously my scheduling needs a tune up.

K. A. Laity said...

Wow, the list gets longer and longer. All kinds of variety, too.

Yvette said...

I just posted by review, Todd. :)

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, folks...and, indeed, a good range today (even if Kevin won't let me consider his how-to book an FFB). If I get a chance to add my scrap, a little wider yet...

Walker Martin said...

The most unusual book is the Bish's Beat piece showing a men's adventure magazine with what might be a decent fiction story. I'm amazed.

Todd Mason said...

Hey, the imitation Bond story might also be competent (assuming you refer to the issue with the excerpt? of the Alistair MacLean...)...that this title all but admits to running fiction was a real step forward for such titles...

Kevin R. Tipple said...

The range on these things is always incredible. One could read nothing else ever but what is suggested every Friday and have a very good time.
