Recommendations from Under the Radar – Monday

Though the primary focus of this particular blog is to look at the books that come out in the current year, I acknowledge that with every passing season, great titles fall through the cracks.  They’re forgotten, forlorn, and all but gone once they go out-of-print.  Poor babies.  So it was that Colleen Mondor had an idea.  Why not create a blog tour of sorts (is there a better term for this?) from the same crew that brought you the Summer Blog Blast Tour?  Each day we’ll see a new crop of old favorites from a variety of different blogs.  Here are the books you can find today:


Finding Wonderland: The Curved Saber: The Adventure of Khlit the Cossack by Harold Lamb
Chasing Ray: Dorothy of Oz from Illusive Arts Entertainment (the Dorothy comic you should all be reading!)
Bildungsroman: Christopher Golden’s Body of Evidence series
Interactive Reader: Christopher Golden’s Body of Evidence series as well
Not Your Mother’s Bookclub
: An interview with Robert Sharenow, author of My Mother the Cheerleader
lectitans: The Angel of the Opera: Sherlock Meets the Phantom of the Opera by Sam Siciliano
Bookshelves of Doom: The God Beneathe the Sea, Black Jack & Jack Holburn all by Leon Garfield
Writing and Ruminating: An interview with Tony Mitton and a review of his book, Plum
The YA YA YAs: I Rode a Horse of Milk White Jade by Diane Lee Wilson
Chicken Spaghetti: The Illustrator’s Notebook by Mohieddin Ellabad
Good stuff.  For a complete listing of the rest of the books this week, please check out Ms. Mondor’s schedule.  Tomorrow I’ll introduce you to the charms of a 1934 Newbery Honor winner.  Be ready to weep at not being able to read it yourself.
A big thank you to Little Willow for the image here.
