Friday's Forgotten Books: the links to reviews and more: 29 July 2016

A tumultuous week (and one with at least two Perry Mason novel reviews, and two of Anita Blackmon's reprint), and a day with several delays and an odd glitch which ate an earlier version of this post. Spare a thought for Bill Crider, facing tough sledding of late; and there's a sweet eulogy for Richard Robinson's tomcat Espresso just up.

Thanks, Todd!

Not at all, Jack. Thank you. More lists coming over the next day or so.

A great list, Todd, and many thanks for the mention.

I, too, have frequently misread the title of that McBain novel as Windows, but . . .

Curt's essay on Helen Reilly and her daughters is a must-read.

Hah. The nature of the day and its typos!
