Lost. Found. Read.

It’s a rainy, dark, and cold morning here in Seattle--perfect weather to keep one inside and reading. So the regular Web-wide promotion of “forgotten books” couldn’t have come at a better time. In addition to Ray Banks’ write-up on this page about Dead Man Upright, by Derek Raymond, today’s crime-novel picks include: The Fallout, by Garry Disher; The Long Midnight, by Daniel Ransom; Lady Afraid, by Lester Dent; Criss-Cross, by Don Tracy; Never Come Back, by John Mair; The Fugitive Pigeon, by Donald E. Westlake; Stone--MIA Hunter: Miami War Zone, by Jack Buchanan; Batman: The Black Glove, by Grant Morrison; The Swaying Pillars, by Elizabeth Ferrars; The Last Good Kiss, by James Crumley; The Minerva Club, by Victor Canning; and The Moonstone, by Wilkie Collins.

In her own blog, series organizer Patti Abbott offers a full list of today’s participating writers/reviewers, plus three other choice but now neglected novels.
