7 lies or Lie to me

These book lists all contain many authors I have read, just not always the specific title in question. Who decides which books go on the list? Wouldn't it be easier to just list the authors instead? Take CJ Cherryh for instance; what makes Cyteen appear but not The Chronicles of Morgaine or Rimrunners? Why isn't Anne McCaffrey's Crystal Singer series there and where is The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon?

I also look at the lists and can't remember whether I have in fact read some of them, because I read an awful lot of scifi in my teens, Clarke, Heinlein, Pohl, Bradbury etc, but can no longer remember which titles - apart from Pohl's Gateway which I was really annoyed to recently discover has several sequels, none of which are in print any more and I can't get hold of them! Grrr.
