This week'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. And Evan Lewis and Robert Napier want you to hear Bill Crider, as Billy Boy and the BBs, performing "Don't Be Cruel" and "Blue Suede Shoes"...
