They have a vast collection, though their sf selection isn't quite as vast as I'd like. (Witches is their only Schmitz title, for instance.) They've got tons of mysteries and romances. But they do have a lot of stuff that isn't on the market commercially. And it's free for those who qualify, which is a definite plus!
I am very grateful to have the blind talking library. But like you said, the scifi is lacking. Very few complete series, and way too much Star Trek and Star Wars. I am listening to a collection of Frederick Pohl's old short stories right now. It is very enjoyable, and I love the old classics. I think it is called "Platinum Pohl" or something like that.
