Not a single one by Heinlein or Anderson? I'm not sure I've even heard of half of those. My list of 20 core books would be quite different, though I would include Frankenstein.

Good books, but an odd list. 18 female and two male authors, if I'm not mistaken. I believe I have 12, but have read 8.

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