Black Powder WarAltered CarbonPsycho HouseRama IIThe Third Claw of God

This week I’ve added 20 more books to the WWEnd DB to finish out 13 series.  My thanks to member mkearl who told me about The Temeraire Series by Naomi Novik.  There are now 5 books available (of a projected 9) beginning with 2007 Hugo nominated His Majesty’s Dragon.  Napolean era with dragons!  Thanks also to whargoul for pointing out the missing books from the Takeshi Kovacs SeriesBroken Angels and Woken Furies have been added to 2003 PKD winner Altered Carbon.  Don’t know how I missed the Kovacs series… Altered Carbon is one of my favorites!

Happy reading and keep ‘em coming.

The Word for World is ForestBones of the MoonThe Brothel in RosenstrasseThe WeathermakersWhen Gravity Fails

This week I’ve added 17 new books, mostly one’s and two’s, to finish out 8 series.  The largest addition is Ursula K. LeGuin‘s Hainish Cycle.  I’ve added the 4 volumes that fall between The Dispossessed (1974 Nebula, 1975 Hugo & Locus SF winner and 1975 Campbell nominee) and  The Left Hand of Darkness (1969 Nebula and 1970 Hugo winner).

There are some great books in this new list so check ‘em out.

On a side note, I’m running out of series to update.  This is mostly a good thing.  It means I’m almost done and I can move on to some other books.  The bad news is that there are many series that I’m unaware of and I need your help.  If you find any books that you know to be part of a series and we don’t have the series info listed please let me know.  There is an email link in the series dropdown on the novel page that you can use to set us straight.

Happy reading.
