message 1: by Linguana (new)

Linguana I tried to "vote" for some of the books you are missing in this list. But I think it's a private list. Could you add the zelazny and leguins and t.s. eliot and all the others that Mori reads? Or make the list open to vote for everyone?


message 2: by Mary (new)

Mary Mascari I just added a ton, literally 100 of them, but I didn't get all the way to the end (about when Mori comes back after having been at Daniel's house, resting). I can't add any more.


message 3: by Rachel (new)

Rachel This is awesome, thanks all for the help compiling!


message 4: by Jonas (new)

Jonas Madden-connor Thank you for doing this, I was hoping someone had!


message 5: by Jonas (new)

Jonas Madden-connor Oh, you have Babel-17 on there twice, by the way.


message 6: by Sarah (new)

Sarah There are a few doubles: Babel-17, Left Hand of Darkness, the Dispossessed, Lathe of Heaven. Great idea for a list!


message 8: by Traci (new)

Traci This is so awesome--thanks!


message 9: by Nyssa (new)

Nyssa Thank you, thank you, thank you to whoever put this together!! I could just hug you!!


message 10: by CiderandRedRot (new)

CiderandRedRot Wonderful! Thank you list authors/compilers/fandom geeks


message 11: by Tim (new)

Tim You've added Dragonsinger/Dragonsong separately and as a single book. You also did the same with Cooper's Dark is Rising books.

That said, I'm glad you did this list because I was thinking of creating one before I found this.


message 12: by Keith (new)

Keith Davis Thank you, the one thing Among Others was missing was a bibliography.


message 13: by Robin (new)

Robin J Now, has anyone started a group to read the lot?


message 14: by Rosalie (new)

Rosalie Thank you for compiling this list! Great idea.


message 15: by Miriam (new)

Miriam Thanks, Rachel! I was trying to psyche myself up to make this list and am glad someone else did it first.


message 16: by Miriam (new)

Miriam Who the eff stuck Mitch Albom and Chuck Palahniuk on this list? Any librarians here who want to remove those?


message 17: by Rachel (last edited Jun 23, 2013 10:09AM) (new)

Rachel Hi, original starter of the list here (though others did most of the work!) I can't seem to de-dupe or remove any of the books as long as at least one person voted for them. Until someone with admin rights comes along, we'll just need to use this imperfect biblio. :)


message 18: by Miriam (new)

Miriam Not your fault, I know, Rachel. I really wish the listopia was set up so that the author of each list could remove items.


message 19: by Debbie (new)

Debbie I'm fairly certain these weren't mentioned in Among Others... Okay to delete?

It by Stephen King
The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk
Sphere by Michael Crichton
Diary by Chuck Palahniuk


message 20: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Yes, please!


message 21: by Debbie (new)

Debbie Gone


message 22: by Matt (new)

Matt this is a great list


message 23: by Melliott (new)

Melliott Just finished reading the book, and wanted to go back and do this--thank you for doing it!


message 24: by Jo (new)

Jo Walton I'm fairly sure The Man in the High Castle wasn't mentioned in AO, as I haven't read it. And I don't remembering mentioning Make Room, Make Room either.

But great work compiling this, wow.

Ha. This is the passage for Man in the High Castle:

WEDNESDAY 13TH FEBRUARY 1980
Hussein led the meeting, and we didn’t just talk about Pavane, but also Brunner’s brilliant Times Without Number and Dick’s The Man in the High Castle (which I haven’t read) and Ward Moore’s Bring the Jubilee and the whole idea of having para-history.

I can't find Make Room, Make Room doing a search in my ebook version.


message 26: by Jo (new)

Jo Walton Ah, fair enough. Well found!


message 27: by Lori (new)

Lori Thank you for this list!
