Tuesday's Overlooked A/V: the links to the reviews: Bloch Centennial Week

Tomorrow, 5 April 2017, will be the centennial of the birth of writer of prose and drama Robert Bloch, whose work is highlighted in entries below by Sergio Angelini and myself. Tomorrow will also see special posts and links to others' devoted to his work, on this blog and Patti Abbott's blog. 

The weekly assembly of links to blogposts, reviews, essays, podcasts and other items of interest about audio/visual work, usually first-rate and deserving of one's attention but sometimes less so and sometimes deserving of obscurity, up to and including opera, stage drama, conventions, museum exhibits, videogames (and boardgames), and more. Thanks to all who have produced the items linked to below! And please let me know if I've missed yours or someone else's.  Todd Mason

Todd – Thanks for compiling the list. I have a post up now, if you would like to include it.

Todd Mason said...

Definitely, Elgin! I had to go do other things, so put up a mere fragment of the list...it stopped alphabetically with the MysteryFile folks, who began with "Dan" and are added at the same time..."Elgin" would be among the next several. Thanks for the heads-up!!

Jack Seabrook said...

Thanks, Todd!

Sergio said...

I think I can post again ...

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Jack...and it looks that way, Sergio!
