Title: Wishlist of Texts
Date: Last updated: Dec 23, 2023

This is a collaboratively edited wishlist of texts that various people would like to see archived on this website someday. That way the texts can be easily found, quoted, printed out as pamphlets, etc.

So, feel free to add to this list by editing the page directly, or by mentioning a text you'd like to see archived in the live chat spaces and some wonderful person may get around to finding and adding the text. Also, whilst you wait, you could be that wonderful person for someone else.

If you'd like advice on how to convert EPUB, PDF and DOC files for the archive, you could consult this AmuseWiki manual, and/or ask your questions in the discord or matrix live chat spaces.
