Default Reading list for [Magic] spells?

I'm speaking (typing?) specifically about spells for the vanilla magic system as it appears in GURPS Magic. So far I have:

Code:
[Magic] - The primary collection of spells
[Basic] - As far as I know there's nothing here that isn't already in [Magic]
[Magic - Death Spells] - It's got death spells
[Magic - Plant Spells] - It's got plant spells
[Underground Adventures] - Has a couple underground specific spells
[Biotech] - Has some spells for genetic engineering
[Thaumatology - Urban Magics] - Has some ley line specific spells
[Fantasy] - Has some more spells, pretty sure these are all in [Magic] though
[Magical Styles - Dungeon Magic] - Some style specific spells for DF
[Thaumatology - Magical Styles] - Some style specific spells for Onyx Path
Am I missing anything?

Banestorm has a few spells relating directly to banestorms I think.

There was one spell in the dungeon fantasy kickstarter material. It may have been backers only, not sure though.

If you want to cover absolutely everything then the Styles book and the Dungeon Fantasy Styles books has a proprietary style spell for each style.

Various Pyramid issues (thinking of Pyramid #3 here) have spells for GURPS Magic, and GURPS Thaumatology has a couple spells too (Raise The Power Cone, and spells dealing with magical essence at least).

As for the Pyramid, at least the latest Thaumatology -issue has a whole college of metal spells, including the absolutely hilarious Anvil Strike.

Very nice so far. Can someone catalog the spells scattered throughout the Pyramid issues?

Edit: Just noticed the "... Pyramids later" comment.

Work Raw Magic from Thaumatology is a Book/Path magic ritual, not a GURPS Magic spell.

Other than that, awesome, I'll be sure to steal this for my own use! :)

FYI In the Pyramid forum I have a magic index that lists waht issues cover what magic systems.
That may save some time looking though the Pyramids to find Magic spells
