Filling in this week for Patti Abbott,  who will return to hosting next week, and we find an array of famous names (Agatha Christie, Margaret Atwood, Margaret Millar, Leonard Michaels, Erle Stanley Gardner, Malcolm Gladwell, "Ed McBain" (my spellchecker refuses to believe in that name's existence), "Richard Stark", John Barth, H. P. Lovecraft, Brian Moore and more, with some of their more overlooked or less-bruited-about books these years...and Dashiell Hammett as guest reviewer in on spot (Anthony Price's job a bit easier, perhaps). If I've missed your or someone else's reviews, please let me know in comments...thanks, to all the contributors and all you readers. Todd Mason
