Zybahn's link got "colonized" by TomCat's...not unlike the depredations of the house's tomcat on Alice's books and bookshelf...

As with the Westlake tribute I am amazed as so little overlap. Looks like ther were only two repeats (three if you count the movie review of "LINDA" by Steve Lewis. Pretty good coverage - and as I expected BOTH his SF novels got mentioned. Excellent work by all. I have some great recommendations and good reading ahead of me this summer. I definitely need to find a copy of THE ONLY GIRL IN THE GAME.

Thanks for the idea, Patti, and to all the contributors I give a round of digital applause.
