Novel Handicapping, version 0.3.5 (update)

Another minor update to the 20th Century Novel handicapper.
- New category type: adaptations – includes screenplay, musical, and computer game
- New category: Laurels: MacArthur Fellowship – the “genius prize”, not a writing-specific prize, but there are a few important ones on the list.
- New category: Titular features: Eponymous title – books named after the protagonist
- Numerous data corrections, proper flagging of female authors, living authors, other missing flags.
- Flagged more books as “banned”, using the American Library Association’s Most Challenged Books list as a reference.
So if you’re looking for something to read, and prefer award winning novels that feature pirates and have been made into computer games, give the gizmo a spin.
