Hi, my name is Marco.
I'm a very basic Italian sf reader with his small possession of volumes and ebooks, in Italian or English.
In the real life I work in the data management field.
These two facets of my life makes me an happy consumer of the ISFDB, so I'll try to contribute with what little I can of my own, especially having little free time to devote.
Here's what I'll try to work out, with no hurry, and given I don't forget to do a proper checklist. It's more a memory aid to myself than a set of info to the ISFDB users.
Regarding the few submissions to ISFDB I already made, here's a task list:
- Complete and homogenise the Robot - Rivista di Fantascienza magazine series.
- Complete details and covers for issues #27 & #37
Follow new issues of:
- Fantasy & ScienceFiction - Italian edition: #18 & #19 are expected soon
- Urania (collana): monthly issues
- Robot - Rivista di Fantascienza: 3 issues per year
- The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction: simply cross-check, there are other contributors usually ahead
I also have some more general projects I'll try to perform:
- "Fantasy & Science Fiction - Edizione Italiana" series is now complete and with the siblings Fantasia e Fantascienza and Fantascienza forms the parent series The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction - Edizione Italiana
- I'll try to add some detailed notes into the series description, with links for reference.
- Add volumes, details or primary verification to the Urania series along the "Urania collana" mentioned above.
- Generically add details from the sf volumes I have to the ISFDB.
And, as cherished dreams:
- compare the NILF (a.k.a. Vegetti's) catalogue content to ISFDB (possibly synchronising)
- try to follow Italian sf published volumes and add them to ISFDB
- work on Italian sf awards?
