I would like to see Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain books added to the database; they're among the best fantasy stories ever written for young readers and I can't wait to share them with my daughter when she get's older:

* The Book of Three
* The Black Cauldron (1966 Newberry Honoree)
* The Castle of Llyr
* Taran Wanderer
* The High King (1969 Newberry Winner)

I'd also like to see Fletcher Pratt's The Blue Star added to the database (I think that would just about cover all of his major works), as well as Henry Kuttner's The Dark World (it was a big influence on Zelazny's Amber series) and Robots Have No Tails (great comedic sci-fi short stories).

Well I meant to ask for this yesterday but since I don't like being a bother I thought I would hold off until I bought it, it's at best a short novel possibly a novella and it only came out today, so if it's not too much trouble:

Annihilation: Book One of the Southern Reach Trilogy - Jeff VanderMeer

http://www.amazon.ca/Annihilation-Book-Southern-Reach-Trilogy-ebook...

Apparently this already has a movie deal!?!
Cheers,
O.
