Friday's "Forgotten" Books: the links to the Reviews: 14 July 2017

This Friday's (evening) crop of reviews of books, and magazines and more, that the contributors feel might warrant more attention than they've received or received of late (except for those which are warnings).  A few contributors might be added over the course of the day, as they upload their reviews...if I've missed yours or someone else's, please let me know in comments. Thanks, everyone! And please spare a thought for those feeling the weight of poor health and other burdens, near and dear to several contributors this week.  
Patti Abbott will be collecting the links (much more promptly!) next week, and as always, it's been a pleasure to gather them while she and her husband tend to other business.
