Another round: merged duplicates that turned up since, ordered omnibuses, assigned to F&tGM series etc. Remains to be decided:
  1. Do Tor Doubles count as an omnibus? (Haven't found a general rule on this; I'd prefer having it hidden as just another publication for the novella, but the problem is that they don't usually list editor and I certainly don't want to see more "unknowns".)
The doubles are mentioned on Help:Screen:EditPub with the relevant items being
  • Set the author to N/A - hardly anyone seems to do this and they list both authors.
  • Enter the page count as ###+###
  • Use a publication type of dos - people forget this and use pb - Google says not a single record in ISFDB uses a type of "dos"...
  • The title type is normally OMNIBUS but that does not seem to be stated in the help. Marc Kupper (talk) 04:29, 8 Mar 2007 (CST)
  1. Should the comic book version of Gonna Roll the Bones be listed as a separate "novel"?
  2. Merge Destiny Times Three novel and novella, or not? Clute doesn't use "ext" in describing it, Pringle quote at explicitly denies it was changed in any way, but suggests the book might have reinstated some magazine cuts (which process Clute should mention as well, but might not have known). Also note that DSTTTHR1945 appears nonsensical: all sources agree that 1945 was the date of serialization and the first book publication came in 1957.
