Can you add Man in the Dark by Paul Auster? It is in ISFDB and is an alternate universe kind of book.
Can you also add Complete Stories by Kurt Vonnegut? It might be overlooked because it is 900 pages long and quietly came out in 2017. He is of course major to science fiction.

Can you add these books? I have a list that I have compiled. I tried to make sure that they are mostly in ISFDB.

1. You Bright and Risen Angels by William Vollmann. It is probably the most non-realistic genre writing that he has done. It deals with insects at war in a fabulist way and is influenced by Burroughs and Pynchon.

2.60 Stories by Donald Barthelme. If you have John Barth and Robert Coover in the database, then you should include some books by Barthelme. His fabulism is very similar to those guys. This collection is probably his most essential book.

3. Snow White by Donald Barthelme. Fairytale fantasy.

4. The Breast by Philip Roth. Very Kafkaesque.

5. Our Gang by Philip Roth. An alternate history of the Nixon Administration.

6. Doctor Faustus by Thomas Mann. If you have Marlowe's Doctor Faustus in the database, then you should include this modern rendering of the Faust Legend.

7. Arabian Nights (Penguin Classics) Vols. 1 to 3 by Anonymous. If you have Homer and Virgil in the database, then you should include this original magic realism classic.

8. 2666 by Roberto Bolano. This book is as horrific as Blood Meridian and is probably the essential book for this writer. He is heavily influenced by Philip Dick.

9. Collected Stories Vols. 1 to 3 by Richard Matheson. This is a recent collection of his stories that came out in the 2000s. The one in the database now, I think, is from 1989.

I have another addition when you have time. Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2022 edited by John Joseph Adams and Rebecca Roanhorse published by Mariner Books last year.

Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2023 edited by John Joseph Adams and R F Kuang published by Mariner Books is scheduled to be released October 17, 2023. Is that too far out to put in the database now?

[Sorry, tried responding to an earlier post] Just a quick note on the first C.L. Moore I flagged earlier (1954 Northwest of Earth), it?s of historical interest as a companion volume to the Shambleau volume (which has an entry) - the 1954 Northwest of Earth volume has the remaining uncollected-at-the- time Northwest Smith and Jirel of Joiry stories. Would be great to have.

Another request: Murray Leinster?s Sidewise in Time, at least the classic 1950 collection and maybe the 2020 volume with different contents.
