They appear to be coming thick and fast. Here's one devoted to Paul Oliver, also due November, but at a eye watering price.

$39.95 is a pretty steep price for a paperback, but a bargain compared to $80 for the hardcover.   

I remember years ago reading some sharp criticism directed at Oliver's interpretation of the blues by both Ralph Ellison (in his review of Leroi Jones's (Amiri Baraka's) book on the blues) and Stanley Edgar Hyman.  In using Google to try to locate their writings, I accidentally came upon Christian O'Connell's thesis The British 'Bluesman': Paul Oliver and the Nature of Transatlantic Blues Scholarship submitted to the University of Gloucestershire, dated January 2013.   Check out the link below.,%20Christian%20PhD%20Whole.pdf
