Forgotten Books: THE LINKS -and- "The Murdered Mummy" by Robert Leslie Bellem

I'm honored to be filling in for Patti Abbott this week - for an extremely worthy cause. She's busy editing the proofs of her highly-anticipated novel, Concrete Angel (now available for pre-order HERE).

And I'm mighty pleased to welcome Mr. John Hegenberger to the FFB lineup. He has a shiny new blog, and offers a fine review of Joe Gores' Stakeout on Page Street. That's HERE.

Well, gang, it's 1pm Oregon Time, and I've given up the hunt. If I missed yours (very possible) or screwed it up (equally likely) please comment here or shoot me an email at delewis1@hotmail,com.

Hegenberger's blog doesn't seem to allow comments. Too bad, because I both liked, and reviewed, the book he has this week.

Evan Lewis said...

Thanks, Mr. Debris. Got you.

Yes, I too enjoyed John H's review.

Casual Debris said...

Thank you Mr. Crockett. You can put me down as Frank Babics if you wish.

Unfortunately the link you've attached is for another site :(

Rick Robinson said...

Oh, and thanks for the Dan Turner. Always enjoy them.

Evan Lewis said...

Thanks Frank. Got it right this time, I hope.

Casual Debris said...

Awesome! Thanks for the quick change.

Tumblr is a little weird. You can leave comments by clicking the icon in the upper right corner of the page and then clicking the Ask button, where you can ask questions and I can answer. Thanks for the shared interest. Have fun!

George said...

We all appreciate you filling in for Patti! You do a great job!

My belatedly posted addition to the series is here:

A hearty "Thank you" to you and Patti.

Unknown said...

Oops! Let's make the "hardy" rather than "hearty" -- but the error somehow sounds right, doesn't it.

Evan Lewis said...

Got it. Thanks!

Thanks for the plug as well as the help! Love you guys, Pattu=i

Jerry House said...

I am so-o-o-o-o-o late*, but mine is now up: a Laverne and Shirley tie-in by Ron Goulart under one of his many pen names.

Thanks for covering for Patti (I'm looking forward to her book), and thanks for another Dan Turner!

*many excuses, including car being fixed, grandson's doctor's appointment, miserable lines at Wal-Mart, etc., etc. Grrrr.

Evan Lewis said...

Thanks Jerry. You're now on the list. WHO KNEW that Ron Goulart wrote a Laverne & Shirley book.

Todd Mason said...
