Black Stars Series

2043... a Merman I Should Turn to Be -- Nisi Shawl
These Alien Skies -- C.T. Rwizi
Clap Back -- Nalo Hopkinson

Black Stars series is in. I haven't entered the 7th on the list as it appears to just be an audible version of the previous six.

The Neverending List
5. Night of the Living Rez -- Morgan Talty
6. Bad Cree -- Jessica Johns
7. Woman, Eating -- Claire Kohda

These three are in. In consultation with the Admin I won't be adding the Megapacks of SF as they appear to be ebook only. If we are wrong and you have a physical book, please let us know and we will reconsider.

Hi Owlcyclops (great name!)

Welcome to the site and thanks for requesting some books.

I have added Soul Jar (interesting anthology - I may have to read this one)

Please note that we don't generally do self-published authors on our site, with some exceptions for well established and formally traditionally published authors. As such I have added the Rachel Neumeier for you. However, I will not be adding Sonia Sulaiman or Antoine Bandele as they seem to be solely self-published.

To see our fairly loose set of 'rules' check out here:

I've picked over the 'easy' ones, and these are in:
Avalon Books and Gnome Press Classics:
Doomed Planet -- Lee Sheldon
Out of the Void -- Leslie F. Stone
Druids' World -- George Henry Smith
The Day the World Stopped -- Stanton A. Coblentz
Rothhaven -- W. E. D. Ross
Interplanetary Hunter -- Arthur K. Barnes

As it was a Hugo winner in 1955, this one is already in under a different title

They'd Rather Be Right -- Mark Clifton, Frank Riley (The Forever Machine)

The rest of the list is proving really difficult. If anyone has these books, or can get hold of them, a synopsis would be really appreciated as I cannot find one anywhere.
The People of the Abyss -- George Allan England
The Time Chariot -- T. Earl Hickey
When the Red King Woke -- Joseph E. Kelleam
Out of the Abyss -- George Allan England
The Everlasting Exiles -- Wallace West
The Return of the Starships -- Jorge de Reyna
The Stars Will Wait -- Henry Hasse
The Time of the Hedrons -- Jack Dennis Eckstrom

You can find these on eBay. As collectible books they will often have images of the inside flaps where you can find the synopsis. Bit of a pain to type in but Ive found many from the Avalon series that way.

Here is one example for The time Chariot

Click the images to see the 2 inside flaps. You can zoom in slightly in the picture window or you can right click and open image in a new window to get the full size image. Usually you can make it out well enough to type it out.

When I do this, I just save the image of those pages as a jpeg and then I can highlight just the text and copy and paste it. It does have to be gone through since the spelling can be off or the formatting really weird but it works and it saves typing it all in.

What program do you use to open these jpegs, that text in the image can be copied as text?
