More from the Back Stacks

James R. Benn’s endorsement on this page of No Orchids for Miss Blandish, by James Hadley Chase, is hardly the only “forgotten book” being championed today in the crime-fiction blogosphere. Elsewhere, you can read about A Winter Spy, by MacDonald Floyd; Behind the Screen, by The Detection Club; The Phantom Spy, by Max Brand; Drury Lane’s Last Case, by Barnaby Ross (aka Ellery Queen); The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian, by Lawrence Block; the Cliff Hardy P.I. series, by Peter Corris; and Gotham by Gaslight, a Batman comic by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola.

In addition, Patti Abbott hosts several write-ups in her own blog, including Ed Gorman’s ode to Rogue Cop, by William P. McGivern. Also refer to Abbott’s blog for a full rundown of the sites participating today in the “forgotten books” project.
