I was at the library today browsing the science fiction / fantasy section. I noticed that somebody had put tags under books of note, giving a “teaser” sentence or two. But something seemed to be missing. I googled the authors’ names, snipped the first photos I could find for each author, and collected them in this image. I have two questions here:
1) What is missing; and
2) How would somebody go about bringing this to a library’s attention?
(One of the authors is not pictured because they use a pseudonym.)

also as far as good authors, philip k dick and ursula le guin are missing
Most of the books chosen seemed to have something to do with empires. At the quick glance I had. Perhaps someone with a narrow view of the genre.
Yep, that is the long and short of it. Ironically, the tags themselves are blindingly white. What first caught my attention was that they were almost all men. I guessed from there that they were probably mostly white, and sadly I wasn’t wrong. I really do have higher expectations for libraries!
