Friday's Forgotten Books; the links to the reviews for 7 October 2016 (new addition)

The weekly round-up of books and related texts the contributors feel haven't yet received sufficient attention, at least (sometimes this is less true, either because the work in question has gotten its due to some degree, whether as an impressive item with a sustained reputation, or a disappointing obscurity...or even the rare item that has a much better following than it deserves.)  This week, I fill in for Patti (Patricia) Abbott, who's attending to other business; she'll probably be hosting again next week at the Pattinase blog.
