Friday's "Forgotten" Books: the links

This week's collection of reviews and citations of the books at the links below is brought to you in part by the fans of "J. J. Connington" (with two books independently reviewed--in late innings, matched by Anthony Gilbert) and a slew of mostly too-unfamiliar titles from a range of our usual contributors and some more occasional, equally-welcome folks. If I've missed your, or someone else's, post, please let me know in comments...and, as always, thanks to all the contributors and all you readers of these. Next week, Evan Lewis will be hosting the links again at his blog Davy Crockett's Alamanack of Mystery, Adventure and the Wild West (please see his review below, among much else, including his continuing galleries of early issues of various literary--including graphic/literary--periodicals), then I will host the following week, then Evan, then me, then founder Patti Abbott (see her review link directly below) will be hosting again.
