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)(and, even more problematically, minor work from major writers--disappointing books this week from Fritz Leiber [the less popular of his two worst novels], Shirley Hazzard, Brian Aldiss)--certainly, this week as most weeks we have a few not at all forgotten titles.
