Here is a wishlist of texts that we would like to get more information on, and to possibly see on the library someday. Many can be found on the far corners of the internet, we just haven't had time to add them yet.

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

Also, feel free to add to this list by mentioning your top picks for the archive and someone else may get around to finding and adding the text.
