Just wondering if there is a list anywhere of all of the books FS has published over the years?

I suppose you mean an online list and not something like Folio 60.

Thanks for the link. I don't care if it's online or in book form, but when I looked up that book on Amazon, it's pretty expensive. I'd love to have it, though.

Before it disappeared from the FS website, Folio 60 was heavily discounted, but even now it can be found on the secondary market for not too much if you have patience. I paid $69 including shipping for a copy in fine condition on eBay a few months ago.

Alternatively, if you're really patient, presumably we're only six years away from the release of Folio 70.

Thanks for the list! I'll buy the Folio 70 when it comes along.

Who on Earth painstakingly did that?

Thanks, Texaco. That is the main index in Folio 60, ironjaw, and a very useful checklist. I assume it was scanned in some way and not typed out by hand!

#7: Certainly not myself; I believe it was Os (a few months ago) who so lovingly formatted and scanned it for us.

In fact an outstanding teamwork of Os and overthemoon . (y)

oh no I didn't do anything on it - I did want to whittle it down somehow but never finished the job.

It's a bit sad, but I have built on the work of Os and Overthemoon to put the Folio 60 index into a spreadsheet, adding books published since then. The post F60 part of the list is necessarily partial for a number of reasons:

+ for the most part, I have not included previously published volumes as I cannot be sure if they are a reprint or a new edition - we will have to wait to Folio 70 to see what the verdict is on that

+ I have worked from the annual prospectuses of new and currently available books so I may have missed some publications

+ I have had a guess at publication year

+ I have not included publications by others offered by FS.

Anyway, if you are interested in a copy, please send a message to my user name with your email address and i will email you a copy. Any corrections and additions will be gratefully received. (Is there a resource area on lbrarything where we can put useful files, etc?)

You probably know all this, but anyhow...

Yes, and at the same time, no. Every user has a 'WikiThing' home page (click on WikiThing at the bottom of every LT page and then click on 'Your WikiThing page' on the left hand menu) and you can upload some files to LT (again, Wikithing and 'Upload file' on the left hand menu) but that won't accept .xls files. It is mainly for images and only accepts png, gif, jpg, jpeg, psd, ttf, pdf, & doc files.

If you were really (and I mean really) keen, you could make a WikiThing Page, either under your home page or elsewhere, and put the spreadsheet you have into a wiki table.

I knew if I asked the question someone would give me the answer! I have tried to upload a pdf version but it fails, maybe because it exceeds the 250kb size limit. thanks anyway.

If you send me a copy of your spreadsheet (email address on my profile page), I'll see what I can do with some judicious find & replace to make it a wiki table for you.

ETA: No, wait. Not surprisingly it has been thought of before. Save your spreadsheet as a csv file and goto this link. That should give you something to paste back into WikiThing.

2nd edit: Fixed (I hope) link.
