Wow, I didn't do anywhere near as well as I hoped. There are quite a few here that I own but haven't read yet (I know that doesn't count for anything.) Also, I seem to have read a lot of authors' other books. I read Tim Powers' On Stranger Tides, I've read a few of Vonda McIntyre's short stories from Fireflood, I read the first three books of Asimov's Foundation and I read Samuel Delany's Nova and Neveryon. Ah well, you can't read everything, though I try.
