Friday's "Forgotten" Books (and stories and magazines): The Links to the Reviews: 28 April 2017 (new links added)

Patti Abbott will be gathering of links again next Friday, after returning from the MWA convention in NYC, and has an interview with Dana King posted on her blog this morning.  As always it's a pleasure to put these lists together; please let me know in comments if I've missed yours or someone else's.
