Hard to believe they excluded Hemingway from such a large list.

Ashbery is spelled wrong. I would imagine Hemingway is an issue of getting the rights, since his stuff is all still under copyright. Notice that for Fitzgerald, who's also published by Scribner, they've only published his public domain stuff - no Great Gatsby. I assume Scribner must be fairly unfriendly to the Library of America project.

@johnlk: Thanks for the Ashbery correction; it's fixed now.

Can it also accept 'Dos Passos' for John Dos Passos?

Yeah, I googled 'Hemingway' and 'Dickinson' to see if maybe I was misspelling them. I mean, I'm not a huge Dickinson fan myself, but there've been about a million editions of her poems published, so I always figured that other people must think she's pretty great.

Did you just forget Kurt Vonnegut, or has he been added since you published this?

: Looking around, it seems like he was added just this month. I've updated the quiz. Thanks for the heads up!
