Sorry if I'm wrong but I'm confused as to why this site does not allow many SciFi books. I would like to add "Trojan Orbit" by Mack Reynolds and Dean Ing but this site pretends it does not exist. What's up? The site has other books by Mack Reynolds. Every other SF site knows about this book.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi there, welcome to WWend.

Our database is a work in progress. It currently holds just short of 25,000 works. This is only a fraction of all SF, F and H that has even been published in English so it is quite possible to come across books that have not been added yet. All the data entry for the site is manual and a labour of love. Adding books to the database is limited to a small group of users known as the Uberusers, who are constantly working to expand the database. If you come across a book that is not yet in the database you can put in a request to have it added in this thread. https://www.worldswithoutend.com/mbbs22/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=1...

We'll look at it as soon as possible but it can take several days before someone gets around to it.

I'll have a look at Trojan Orbit in a moment.

WOW! Quick response. Thanks for the help. I'm so new to the site that I'm still stumbling around. I'm glad I found you. I will be more patient in the future.

I have noticed that some of book reviews are quite good.
