Fridays's "Forgotten" Books: The Links to the Reviews and More

This week's links to the reviews and more by the following contributors...Matt wins with least-forgotten book this week, though Sergio, Alice and Marcia Muller have classics or aspiring classics that have managed to hang on in print, and a few new books (and magazines) are in the mix, while Richard Krause gives the most consideration to a typical John Spencer & Co. magazine story any has perhaps ever received so far...if I've missed yours or someone else's, please let me know in comments...Patti is likely to be hosting again next week, perhaps on her new or at least on her old and repaired computer. And please spare a thought for Sandi Tipple, Kevin Tipple's wife, and Kevin and their family.

Yvette said...

You missed mine, Todd. Just a gentle reminder. :)

Todd Mason said...

Thanks, Yvette. I tend to go alphabetically, and it wasn't up when I started, so I'm going back up from the middle to see if I can catch late "Regulars" along with those I tend to add...Elgin Bleecker and Will Errickson, for examples of columns A and B...though Elgin wasn't so much Late as not contributing last week.

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Thanks as ever for making Fridays so much more fun!

Elgin Bleecker said...

Todd – Thanks for doing the FFB list today.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Elgin, for contributing to that!

Todd Mason said...

Sergio--they'll be less fun without your contributions!

Will Errickson said...

Thanks again for including me in such great company!

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Will. Never a problem.

Kevin R. Tipple said...

On behalf of my wife and our family, thank you, Todd. Means a lot. Thank you.

Todd Mason said...

Life has more than its share of tough times for most of us, but it seems as if you all have been getting far more than your share. Anything we can do....

Jerry House said...

Todd, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving with good food, good company, good books, overlooked films and/or A/V, and underappreciated music!

Todd Mason said...

You, too, Jerry! Thanks!
