I don't think the existing division makes a great deal of
sense anymore. (I never entirely understood the point of
it anyway.) If you're paying for this, I recommend not
paying for two lists.

If you think two lists is worthwhile, consider alternate
divisions. Some possibilities that suggest themselves:

1) One for the "Lupiverse" of the FOO SUN books and one 
   for "other" Lupine materials.

   1a) A modification of the above: one for the "American" 
       stuff (like PEACE, CASTLEVIEW, PANDORA, various 
       shorts) that some folks seem allergic to, and one 
       for his more far-flung stuff.

2) One for discussing "new" work and one for "outstanding 
   repertoire" - a way of limiting spoiler damage for 
   those who don't pre-order everything Lupine months in
   advance. An arbitrary line would have to be drawn; for
   example, "when a text has been in print in book form 
   for six months, it moves to the 'older stuff' list."

3) One for goggle-eyed praise of everything Wolfe writes and
   one for whining about how Wolfe isn't as good as he used
   to be. [Surely there's _some_ middle ground... 8*)]
