Here's another challenge for you: How many of those books have filk songs about them? Of those, how many do you know?

Joey Shoji has an Octavia Butler song, but I'm not sure which series it's based on.

Heather Alexander's whole album "Songsmith" is based on that Andre Norton novel.

Semi-local filker Teri Wachowiak [a Goh at the Uk Filkcon, her concert there was on filkarchive] has some songs based on Le Guin's Earthsea series.

I know I've heard songs about Jirel, Frankenstein, and Madeleine L'Engle [although not altogether--want to write one? ;)], but can't remember by whom or when right offhand.
