FRIDAY'S "FORGOTTEN" BOOKS AND MORE: the links to the reviews, the texts, and more: 6/13 March 2020 (and past time)

This bi-month's books and more, 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...if I've missed your review or someone else's, please let me know in comments. Hope to not skip February again, as this is going to be a huge file...personally, the worst thing to have happened in the recent interregnum was the sudden death of Paul Barnett, who did most of his writing, including his book and film reviews and more on Noirish, as by "John Grant"...and was a friend. His reviews (which he had stockpiled in reserve; new ones are still appearing at this time) are hardly the only thing we'll miss here.

I'd stopped on 6 March when I learned of the death of Earl Kemp. Picking it up again now. (I tend to go alphabetically, though the first off a multi-author website will disrupt the strictness of that alpha sequence.) We get to miss jazz pianist McCoy Tyner today, too.
