Friday's "Forgotten" Books and More: the links to the reviews

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; we have a number of reviewed titles this week written by (or published by) fellow contributors to these lists, past and present.  Founder Patti Abbott is on hiatus this week, and might be taking up the list again next Friday...if I've missed your review or someone else's, please let me know in comments...

Uncanny, but I also wrote about The Auctioneer. I just posted it. Will you please update the links with this one after my name: The Auctioneer by Joan Samson When you have time, of course.

Thanks for pitching in these past weeks, Todd!

Todd Mason said...

Just received the ARC of GO, LOVELY ROSE/THE EVIL WISH by Joan Potts, with an introduction you wrote.

J F Norris said...

Very proud of my involvement with Stark House on helping that reissue happen. I hear more Jean Potts reprints are on the way. I like that!

Todd Mason said...

As well you might be!

Rick Robinson said...

Link to Margot's review of Crider goes astray, I'm afraid.

Todd Mason said...

Yep, fixed that one nt long after you saw it. Thanks.

Elgin Bleecker said...
