Wow that's difficult, I kept having to unselect books in order to select other books. Not keen on some authors having entire series rather than a specific book though, makes the whole thing unbalanced
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I kept on getting pop-ups saying 10 only :lol: had to change it a couple of times when I found one I'd missed, there is a few there I would not give time of day to, but the list was a reduced one, I will be in S.F. by the 11th but I can check it out using the hotels WiFi. :)

I agree its really difficult to pick just 10. And as usual a rather random selection of Pratchett

I was a bit surprised to see authors like Jack Vance missing and a couple of other well known ones.

Not every stinker was there Pooh. :lol:

But best scifi fantasy of all time and they put in a CS Lewis that isn't Narnia . Seems insane. No Lewis Carroll either or Baum. Wheres Harry Potter and what is the scientologist loony bins rubbish doing on the list. Theres worse mistakes than missing Pyramids
