Request List

Ho shadowfax!

...recommendations for new books or videos are always welcome - they'll be acquired at the librarian's discretion...

Just read something really really good you think the library should have? Remembered a film that you reckon the other members would enjoy, or spotted a gaping hole in our collection? Let us know!

You don't have to be logged in to submit requests, but if you don't they'll be signed off 'random'. The comments field can be used for suggested price etc.

 Current Requests...

We run a hunters system for request items, whereby members may volunteer to look for them (in charity shops, on ebay etc.) The status column will give the name of the hunter if there is one, 'Hunt for me!' if there isn't, or other messages like 'Get later'. If you are interested in hunting for an item please read the guidelines and ensure you have registered

Isobelle CarmodyThe library already has the previous volume in the series. These books are pretty cultishly popular (ie normally popular amongst sci-fi / fantasy fans), the author well known in Australia, I've been reading and seeking out the novels for flipping years, and I'll do any personalised pretty pictures in recompense for as many years as ICSF exists ^_^

VariousDo we have all the Clarke nominted books since the award started?
- I've now checked through all the Clarke, Hugo and Nebula *winners*, which will do for the moment. Leaving this here as a reminder! - dormouse
- now that we have nearly all the winners, i've added the clarke shortlist books to the list - mainly for reference rather than active searching, so we know to pick them up secondhand if we see them cheap. Don't think there'll be a huge amount of interested readers, so it's not worth actively hunting them - if you see one you do want to read, comment on it so we know to prioritise it. - dormouse

- Well, I'll generally grab any GSG we don't have if I see it 2nd hand. - karne
- got "a bad day for ali baba" and "the other sinbad" - dormouse
