This week's books, unfairly (or sometimes fairly) neglected, or simply those the reviewers below think you might find of some interest (or, infrequently, you should be warned away from); certainly, most weeks we have a few not at all forgotten titles. Founder Patti Abbott is taking a break from listmaking for a while...so if I've missed yours or someone else's, please let me know in comments...

Thanks for putting this together, Todd. Too Many Women by Stout is one I would like to re-read soon... it comes right before the first of the Zeck Trilogy. And what a lovely cover.
Thank you, Tracy...I have a lot of Wolfe to get to, myself...
Thanks once again, Todd, for compiling the FFB list.
Thank you for your contributions, Elgin.
Adding my thanks to the others, Todd. You're a peach.
P.S. The new type color is terrific.
Thanks, Todd. I like that Highsmith cover. It reminds me of the design of some Roald Dahl books I bought in England ages ago.
Yvette--too kind! Peach back at you. And the new default color for the links is the oxblood, but the darker blue carries over from the text-editor I've begun using to fight Blogspot weirdness. Thank you, and, again, glad you're feeling better, and thank you for contributing.
Jack--Thank you...and Kate Laity has noted on Twitter that this Penguin cover is a bit eccentric in regards to the novel's content...typically of the Penguin covers of the turn of the '70s, when fairly bold but often irrelevant abstraction Ruled OK at the house where the founder hated illustrated covers and forbade them as much as possible when he held sway. As you might note, I like to get alternate covers (often but by no means exclusively first edition covers) up, when the reviewer has posted a good cover photo...and for those reviewers who post no covers, I try to get a cover up when one can be found...or, as in the case of James Reasoner's novel this time (only serialized in newspapers and never released as a book, as far as we know), when one exists.
