Friday's "Forgotten" Books: Friday, 13 October 2017: the links to the reviews and more

This week's selections of books (and magazines, short fiction and poetry) offered for your attention, after receiving too little at least of late, according to the contributors (along with the occasional warning...only two of those this week, I think). Michael Gilbert is the writer of the week, by a nose or a preface. If I've missed yours or someone else's book, please let me know in comments. Patti Abbott will be back at compilation, after coming back from the Toronto Bouchercon, next week...

The link to my blog is much appreciated--the link to James Reasoner's blog needs fixing. 'Fred Fitch'

Thanks, Chris. I'll have to ask why "Fred Fitch" sometime...
