I'll also nominate books written between 1987 and 2002 (inclusive). That's right, the original (not re-release or re-publish, or new notes editions) must have been published between 1987 and 2002 inclusively. No 2003 books, no 1986 books.
Trying to fill in some gaps?

I will third Lottery version 3 and nominate MobileRead Authors.

To keep from missing out on some of last years categories (Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy) since there are new categories taking up quite a few months already and a few more that could get chosen (Banned Books and YA seem popular), I'll nominate Speculative Fiction as a category. At least it will preempt all the quibbling about what fits in what category.

For those that do not know what Speculative Fiction is...

Quote:
Speculative fiction is an umbrella term encompassing the more fantastical fiction genres, specifically science fiction, fantasy, horror, weird fiction, supernatural fiction, superhero fiction, utopian and dystopian fiction, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, and alternate history in literature as well as related static, motion, and virtual arts
As for the quibbling, that will stop when the combination categories that don't work stop.

This is a great idea for a category, seeing as we're down to five months left and so many options to choose from. I was already thinking how much I wouldn't like it if all three became separate categories so close to each other - it would be too much intense genre all at once. Since it also adds Horror in, this would be a great selection for October.
