Friday's Forgotten Books

Patti Abbott, the mother of one of the better authors of our time (and no slouch herself in the storytelling department), runs a nice little feature every week called "Friday's Forgotten Books." In it, she invites writers to scribble a small review or summary of a crime or mystery book that might have been overlooked altogether, or that needs to be brought to the public's attention again.

This Friday, among the many mentions, she was nice enough to post the little article I had on Brett Halliday's "Head's You Lose." Why don't you pop on over and take a peek?

There's so many oldies out there, worthy of reading. I have shelves full of them.

Brett's a cool name isn't it? I always think of roger moore as Lord Brett Sinclair in 'The Persuaders'.

S is for the surly look I get when I see it.

P is for the p*rn that really no one outside of people in jails and remote lighthouses want to look at (and that's why you have to clutter people's email boxes and blogs, because otherwise the stuff sells itself).

A is for anger I get when I see it (see a continuing theme here?).

M is for the money that some knucklehead is dumb enough to pay you.

So when you say "not spam," I will quote the late Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart right back at you when I say "I know it when I see it."

I envy you, I need shelves instead of stack replicas of a certain tower in Pisa.

Paulie Decibels,

I really need to try Netflix again, because I need to watch such Brit fare as "The Persuaders," "Space 1999" and "The Saint" with adult eyes.

I should be popping up there on Friday myself.

Paulie Decibels,

Excellent, I hope you've unearthed a hidden gem.
