There's actually a reason why a lot of the scifi is marked fair and has no
synopses. When Bookshare was first started, validators did a mass validation
with only being able to see the first and last 5000 characters in the book.
So unless someone happened to have read the book, or there was a
well-scanned blurb that they could copy/paste, they couldn't do a synopsis.
And of course since they were the first donations, a lot of them may have
been very old scans. I'm glad we're doing that effort of rescanning
fair-rated books--maybe some of these will get a redo.
