"[The] SF Convential Calendar"

Could you please double check whether there is a "The" in the title of "SF Convential Calendar" in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, Mid-Dec 1990? The reason I am asking is that we have three more magazine issues on file with "The SF Convential Calendar" essays published in 1989-1990. Apparently it was a semi-regular department, so I wonder if they accidentally dropped the article in this issue or, perhaps, if the article is cleverly hidden on the title page? Thanks! Ahasuerus 19:29, 19 Dec 2007 (CST)

Oh, I see, you were changing all the occurrences of this Essay to be article-less! That makes sense, so I have approved the submissions. Thanks :) Ahasuerus 19:32, 19 Dec 2007 (CST)
The contents page uses "The" in the title, but on the article itself there is no "The" in the title (I checked for "cleverly hidden", it is not there). I always use the title and author's name as it appears on the article, which also means that if "Editorial" appears with the title on the page, it goes in too. I break this rule for artists if I know their complete names as particularly in older editions, you are lucky to even get their last names. I also check the page numbers as more than once, I have found errors in the TOC. Thx, rbh 07:46, 20 Dec 2007 (CST)

Princess of Wands

Could you please double check the spelling of the artist's last name in your verified Princess of Wands? Is it "Stephan Hickman" or "Stephen Hickman"? Thanks! Ahasuerus 23:27, 11 Feb 2008 (CST)

Stephen both on the back cover and the copyright page. rbh (Bob) 18:00, 12 Feb 2008 (CST)
Thanks, fixed :) Ahasuerus 20:33, 12 Feb 2008 (CST)

Calendar of Upcoming Events

Bob, I've been looking at your latest submissions and I noticed that you seem to be connecting all of the magazine features into series. I'm not sure that it's necessary to do this to all of the features. I would also like to suggest that an entry like "Analog: A Calendar of Upcoming Events (Analog, December 1986)," could have the "Analog:" dropped from the front, since it's redundant.--Rkihara 11:46, 5 Mar 2008 (CST)

Ron, I was adding to a series created by someone else. Maybe we need to have some additional guidance put on the Analog page as to what should and should not be a series and if/when the canonical title Analog should be used as we are not using it for some things that are shared with Astounding. I know they really are the same magazine and maybe the two pages should merge to be consistent with other magazines that have gone through name changes. "In Times to Come" is another series that I think has little reference value, "The Reference Library" and "Brass Tacks" slightly more.
As to dropping "Analog:" from the title, I would love to have a shorter title but Analog is included in the title on the page and in the index, so I have been following the rule "Title - The title of the work. The title should appear exactly as published, even though this may be different from the canonical title." listed in the Help pages under "contents". Do we need to modify this guidance?
Someone should honcho the magazine pages and I kinda assumed that was you, if you need help, I would be glad to do what I can do, but we really need some standards rather than each of us who works in these pages doing their own thing. Thx, rbh (Bob) 19:05, 5 Mar 2008 (CST)
Bob, there is no magazine honcho here. I suppose it appeared that I was one, since I'm one of two, maybe three, active moderators who enter and approve magazine data almost exclusively. A lot of the rules are still vague and a little fluid, but there are enough editors and moderators working on magazines now, that we should nail down a more detailed standard, before things become hopelessly snarled. Swfritter and I have been verifying groups of fifties magazines together and working them to a standard that we've agreed upon in areas that are not fully defined already. Uniformity of appearance goes a long ways towards credibility, as a patchwork appearance weakens a user's confidence in our reliability. I'll take a try at filling in some of the vague areas in the rules, then drop it into Rules & Standards for discussion.
What to put in series and what not has never been settled. My comments about putting not putting all the departments into series was only a suggestion, as it takes a lot of time and energy to do this. As I think you've pointed out, you have a lot more magazines to enter once you've finished grooming the batch you're working on. If you wish to continue putting these departments into series, I have no problem with approving them. On dropping "Analog" from the title, you're correct, maybe we could take it out of the parenthesis?--Rkihara 00:42, 6 Mar 2008 (CST)
There are some things for which it is difficult to write rules and regulations, especially when they require a fair amount of subjective analysis. When the process of adding series to Analog began it was headed towards absolute disaster but luckily a number of moderators caught things on the fly and most of the work seems to be fairly consistent now. Putting the series link on the magazine wiki pages documents the series that are being added and allows others to check the consistency along with indicating to other editors what items should be in series and how they should be formatted. The essay series with specified authors are the most important ones to put in series because the author bibliography pages are more organized as a result. There are a lot of things I wouldn't put in series but if someone else has a significant number of issues of a title and is willing to put in the work, I am willing to follow their lead for that specific title. To my mind the only specific downside to a series is the amount of work it takes to enter the data. This is a honcho free zone.--swfritter 16:42, 6 Mar 2008 (CST)
Actually, "AnaLog" was the name of the feature. Note the capital "L". Pun intended. I'm not sure if that spelling is the same in every issue since I've not subscribed in the past decade. MHHutchins 16:31, 6 Mar 2008 (CST)

"Probability Zero: Equivalence PrincipleEquivalence Principle"

I have approved all of your overnight submissions, but I was wondering if "Probability Zero: Equivalence PrincipleEquivalence Principle" is really spelled that way? Thanks! Ahasuerus 13:01, 24 Mar 2008 (CDT)

Even apart from the repetition (which looks like a copy-&-paste-twice), I'd suspect that the "Probability Zero: " part of the title shouldn't be there; isn't there a series for those? -- Dave (davecat) 13:25, 24 Mar 2008 (CDT)
I didn't make that entry, only assigned it to a series. Went back, confirmed what the real title is, and fixed that. Yes, there is a series called "Probability Zero" and all the titles in it start with that series name. I need to add that series to the series list on the Analog page as well as the other Analog series I have found and remind people to leave the series name off, then edit all the entries to remove the series name. In my copious spare time working off my Analog backlog. Thx, rbh (Bob) 19:55, 24 Mar 2008 (CDT)

Obituary series

Notice that you put Hal Clement's obituary into a series called "Obituary". This is an interesting idea but I thought I would hold it since it might be an idea others might want to comment about. I can see no downside and the upside is that we could use the series to organize all the obituaries.--swfritter 18:37, 11 Apr 2008 (CDT)

Seems like a good idea to me. Dana Carson 18:48, 11 Apr 2008 (CDT)
I have entered many and thought it was time as some people might like to be able to look them up. Thx, rbh (Bob) 19:28, 11 Apr 2008 (CDT)
Have approved. I might note that tags could have also been used. Also, if we could sort sub-series it might be an idea to have a series for each year - like 'Obituary (1966)' for an author who died in 1966. Maybe in the future?--swfritter 20:34, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
I mentioned that flagging obituaries might be useful here but didn't get much response. Obituaries and Bibliographies in pubs we might already have are good things to point out, IMO. One recent entry seems to have led to a major filling-in of gaps for a certain author, for instance. I generally support the idea so long as it doesn't get lost in subdivisions by Magazine or Publisher - I'm not even too sure about Year subdivisions, I'd just like pointers to all this useful stuff from the author. BLongley 23:30, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
I think some of the potential enhancements may provide support for linking authors to essays about them. I hope so - that is the only way to get the essay to show up on the author's page; unless we start crediting the deceased as the authors of their own obituaries. Using a series or tags will make it easier to find the essays until we have a way to link the authors.--swfritter 23:44, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
Capturing the information is the first step but then each thing that we do to link it in useful ways so that it can be mined is another step in the right direction. Much of the biographical information about an author such as interviews, biographies, and obituaries, appear in the magazines so that is a rich source to exploit. We need to decide what needs to be done, do it as best we can, and then let the tools catch up. While my initial response to yearly series was positive, I am concerned that I would have to remember the year an author died in order to select the right series making the data less accessible. Thx, rbh (Bob) 02:46, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Does anyone have a reasonable Guesstimate of how many such articles we have? So far the "Obituary" and "In Memoriam" titles are less than a hundred in total so don't really need sub-dividing yet, but I don't know what other common phrases indicate such content. BLongley 17:41, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Sometimes only the authors name is used in the title. In that case I usually append it with (Obituary). Using the Obituary series makes that unnecessary. How many potential obituaries? Think Locus. They usually print 10 or 20 per issue.--swfritter 22:06, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
I haven't read Locus for years. Actually, Ansible is probably the only SF monthly I read now - and while that has a depressingly large number of recorded deaths nowadays, a lot of them are of fans and actors rather than anyone we normally record. And even if it's someone notable, an entry there is usually only useful enough to update the author entry, but I've never felt an article there is long enough to be worth separate recording. BLongley 22:19, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

April 1966 - Credited the editorial to The Editor and if I am sufficiently convinced that Pohl wrote the editorials (probably so) I will do the pseudonym thing. Also removed 'Editorial:' from the title of the editorial since it is inconsistent with previous entries and will become redundant when I put the editorials in a series.--swfritter 20:37, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Might note that in many other issues Pohl is credited as the author of the editorials on the TOC but as The Editor on the column. The April issue is one of those cases where this is not done.--swfritter 19:16, 30 April 2008 (UTC)


The moderators have been talking about you behind your back, and have decided to ask you if you would like to become a moderator. Would you like to become a moderator? If so reply here, and we will begin the nomination process. There is a Moderator Qualifications page. Alvonruff 20:56, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

I am both pleased and honored to be considered, and would like to become a moderator. Thx, rbh (Bob) 02:41, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
The nomination was a smashing success and has been now closed. Congratulations, Bob, you are now a moderator! :) Ahasuerus 01:30, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
At this time, the moderator button does not work for me, it says I need sysop permission. Thx, rbh (Bob) 23:49, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
Hm, that's very strange, I can see your "sysop" flag set in the "User rights management" screen. I wonder if it has something to do with the move to the new host and the subsequent Wiki upgrade? Let me ask Al... Ahasuerus 00:08, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
The new version of MediaWiki tracks user rights differently than the old veriosn. For now I updated you rights the old way in the legacy SQL table. Try again. Alvonruff 01:07, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Works now, Thanks! rbh (Bob) 01:26, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

Possible change to your verified pub Analog Science Fiction and Fact, Feb 1975

I noticed that in the letter column there are letters by Damon Knight and David Gerrold. Should those be added? Tpi 10:15, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Change to your verified pub Analog Science Fiction and Fact, November 2004

The bookreview of Ringworld's Children was spelled "Ringwrld's Children", probably mistake? Tpi 12:04, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Changes to your verified Analogs in 1975

You have verified three issues of Analogs in 1975. I have made some small changes to those. I have used fep for content on the front inside cover instead of page number. I also have added a few letters by known sf authors. Tpi 19:28, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Bob - please take a look at User talk:Tpi#Tpi's submission (title remove)of Letter (Analog, March 1975) and comment on this on TPI's talk page. It involves deleting one of the letters from a magazine you verified. Thank you. Marc Kupper (talk) 18:07, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

I have also added AnLab results in the "Notes" section on your verified publications Jan, Feb, Apr issues of Analog. I have done it also to Oct, Nov and Dec Analogs from 1974 - I have also used fep for content on the front inside cover instead of page number. Tpi 19:18, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Faery Lands Forlorn

Apologies. I loaded an image that should match both our copies. Please check and advise if this bothers you. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 16:24, 28 August 2008 (UTC)


Hi Bob - I rejected your update to Firesong. You wanted to change

  • The date from 2002-09-00 to 2003-00-00.
  • The price from $17.99 to $11.99.
  • Add the note: A reading group guide of 13 pages is bound into the back of the book

Amazon has a Search Inside that shows $17.99 for a first U.S. edition dated 2002. The ISFDB publication record seems to be correct other than the binding may be wrong. ISFDB has TP, Amazon says HC, the Search Inside looks like a HC, but the copyright page says "ISBN 0-7868-0571-4 (trade ed.)." I suspect it's a hc.

Rather than updating the publication record which seems to match Amazon's physical copy please clone SNGFFR2002 to create a tp priced at $11.99. Generally I operate on the principle that data in ISFDB tends to be correct and I don't delete or change things unless I have really strong evidence that it's wrong. This is particularly true for the price field and the only wrong prices that tend to show up in the DB are when a book is announced at one price but published at another (and usually higher) price. The page count field is probably the least reliable and I always approve changes to those without bothering to research them. Marc Kupper (talk) 21:59, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Earth Made of Glass

In verifying my copy to this [1] . I found this image [2] . If this works for you, then we match totally. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 22:46, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Also, I approved an update by Bluesman to update your verified Earth Made of Glass to add the notes "Stated first PB edition; full number line. / $7.99 in Canada." --Marc Kupper|talk 22:59, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Steve Mudd

Could you please check whether Tom Easton's review of Tangled Webs in your verified Analog Science Fiction and Fact, December 1989 attributes the book to "Steven Mudd" or "Steve Mudd"? TIA! Ahasuerus 02:15, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

On travel last week and for the next 2. Might get a chance to check this in the Thanksgiving timeframe. I know precisely where I put the box with that magazine. Thx rbh (Bob) 23:13, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Death of an Adept

FYI, User:MA Lloyd has changed the date of your verified hardcover edition of Death of an Adept from 1996-00-00 to 1996-12-00. It matches what the Locus Index has for this publication, so I let it through, but we may want to double check whether the month is stated in the book. Ahasuerus 18:32, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Change to your verified pub Analog May 2003

I added a letter written by Stephen Burns. Tpi 16:17, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Added POWERS as the artist on your verified pub TNFNTMMNT1961. Though uncredited, his signature is plainly visible on the lower left corner of the cover. Cheers! ~Bill, --Bluesman 19:36, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Agent of Vega

Added the artist John Woolhiser (his signature is on the cover) to your verified pub GNTVG1962. Also a note re the printing/publishing data on the copyright page. Cheers! ~Bill, --Bluesman 19:38, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Approving your submissions

Sorry, Bob. It slipped my mind that you had become a moderator, and I approved some of your submissions today. On this submission I reversed the publisher from "SFBC/Baen" to "Baen / SFBC" which has become ipso facto standard when entering SFBC editions. I also moved the ISBN from the notes to its own field and placed the SFBC number in the notes. Since the early nineties, the SFBC has published new editions (mainly omnibuses) and given them their own ISBN. Sometimes in the case of the above mentioned pub, they even reprint another publisher's book and give it their own ISBN. In this case I've been using the ISBN printed in the book and placing the SFBC number (from the back of the dustjacket) in the notes field. I don't believe this has been established as a standard, but if you think it warrants discussion in the community forum, please feel free to start one. Thanks. MHHutchins 23:00, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Perry Rhodan #7,#10 + PerryRhodan Discussion

This. [3]. Due to cover changes would you confirm this cover. [4] . If so, I will transient. Thanks, Harry --Dragoondelight 13:57, 2 January 2009 (UTC) Series talk--this. [5] . As the owner of the Perry Rhodan project, we will need your input to this discussion. Personally, I am verifying my copies. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 13:57, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Perry Rhodan #71: The Atom Hell of Grautier

Is it really Raymond Z. Galiun in your verified Perry Rhodan #71: The Atom Hell of Grautier ? It looks suspiciously close to Raymond Z. Gallun. BLongley 11:36, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Pardon the but in, I have the same edition and it is Raymond Z. Gallun. It is on the toc and the story title page as I just spelled it. It is spelled above in the Introduction blurb also. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 13:00, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
This [8] . I added cover artist, cover image and notation. I del/sub to read "Recruits for Rhocon!" (added ! as on essay title page), "Magician of Dream Valley" by "Raymond Z. Gallun" as above (Bill's query) for title story and 'Magician' instead of 'Magican', and "Magician of Dream Valley" same above spelling, artist is Elliott Dold Jr as on copyright page not Elliot, also added note that 1934 date mismatches 1938 printing date of story. Changed it to 1938 as the db shows the story printed then. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 14:31, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

This. [11]. Added cover image this. [12]. Which matches my copy matching your verification. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 00:08, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Changes to your verified pub Analog Science Fiction and Fact, August 1986

I changed two typing errors from reviews: "Starswarm by Brian W. ldiss" and "The Praesidium of Archive by Jefferson P. Swycafter" (last should be Swycaffer) Tpi 10:45, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

PR#19 Mutants vs Mutants--entered new pub per your notes

This. [13]. Entered new pub becaused of this note in your verification notes. 'Second printing 1974; price $0.95; has a red "Second Printing" band on the cover.' I admit to some confusion by the note. In any case two entries will be needed. Your verification has the first printing date, but second printing notes. Mine is this. [14] . Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 21:31, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

PR#22; The Fleet of the Springers--differences

This. [15]. I differ in severs aspects of your verifications. Here is a cover image. [16] . Here is the caption underneath. "March 1973 First Ace Printing features cover art by Gray Morrow." This from Terran Trader a pretty good Amazon vendor source. I would go with the Gray Morrow id, even though I can not find it myself (bad eyes maybe).

7 • Teatempestpot • [Stardust Editorial] • essay by Forry Rhodan and Charles A. Crayne

I disagree with co-crediting the letter writer which he quoted in total in the editorial. Thus I would remove Charles A. Crayne. Also, Forrest J. Ackerman is clearly signed on page 15, but Forry Rhodan is not used to close this essay. Forry Rhodan is only used in the body of the essay.

115 • Donovan's Brain • essay by Forrest J. Ackerman

This is as on the toc. Page 115 is "Scientifilm World" with "Donovan's Brain" and "Donovan's Brain (#2)" only in the body of the essay. I can see no crediting of Forrest J. Ackerman in the toc or the body of the essay. I would therefore return to Scientifilm World (PR#22) by uncredited.

117 • Pallas Rebellion • [Shock Short] • (1950) • shortstory by W. Malcome White

It is W. Malcom White with no e in Malcome. Probable typo.

147 • Big Wide Wonderful World • [Shock Short] • (1958) • shortstory by Charles E. Fritch

You used the toc version of the title. The title story page version is "Big, Wide, Wonderful World" . Which I believe is the ISFDB usuage. Also I think a reference is needed to the copyright page which reads "Great Wide Wonderful World" copyright 1958 by Mercury Press, Inc. by permission of the author. Unfortunately that is vague, but FJA lapses on such often.

Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 15:41, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

PR# 24; Infinity Flight-add cover, artist & note on art

This. [17] . Added cover, artist and note on artist signature. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 22:30, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Update approved. --Marc Kupper|talk 06:40, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

PR#27 Planet of the Gods-additions/corrections/notes

This. [18]. Corrected the novel title to read "The Land of the Gods" as shown on story title page. Note copyright is "Land of the Gods". The PR title is therefore different than the novel. Added notes, especially that "The Exile of the Skies" is only on copyright page, and "Exile of the Skies" is on ToC and story title page. Stated that it would be used as "The" as it varied between the various magazine story title pages.

Additonally, I have changed the "Juanillo" drawings of Pucky to "Untitled Pucky" and connected those is the records to (PR#xx) of first appearance so they could be grouped as images. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 01:21, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I approved an update that
  • Adds the cover artist Gray Morrow
  • Adds the image
  • Adds the following notes
    • First Ace printing August 1973. [This Publication Record].
    • No printing number line in book.
    • Land of the Gods copyright 1973 by Ace Books.
    • An Ace Book by arrangement with Arthur Moewig Verlag.
    • Series and characters created and directed by Karl-Herbert Scheer and Walter Ernsting.
    • Ace Books edition.
    • The Land of the Gods by Kurt Mahr on story title page.
    • Exile of the Skies as used on this books story title page and ToC. To keep the series in order The Exile of the Skies is used as in it's original publication, the copyright credits, and in other issues of Perry Rhodoan at the story title page.
I left notes at User talk:Dragoondelight#PR title record changes as he did the other changes via title record updates that also confused me a bit. --Marc Kupper|talk 07:09, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Players at the Game of People.

Massaged the notes for PLRSTTHGMF1980 as the copyright page actually says "first edition" not "first printing". First printing is assumed as there is no number line. Also included the LCCCN. Cheers! ~Bill, --Bluesman 23:12, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

PR#29 A World Gone Mad- ads/change

This. [20]. Added cover image, cover artist, and notes. Submitted "Doomsday" by Larry Herndon (not Herdon). I would also argue that "The Shortest Story Ever Told" is more of an essay than shortfiction. I also would argue that the Stardust Guest editorial was an essay by Forrest J. Ackerman with a letter ending that essay by Elizabeth Konig. She wrote a letter, that was commented upon by FJA and thus to me the whole would be an essay. If she is co-credited here, then "The Perryscope" format would also require co-credits to the letter writers? Yes/No/Maybe. I leave it to you to ponder. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 00:16, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Also I owe you a sincere apology. I am not trying to one up you and your efforts. My intent is to cross-check, enter relevant data and frankly run away from the other issues in PR. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 00:16, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Couple of weird things about this pub. There are two pieces of artwork for Hepcats of Venus - one on page 2 and one on page 52. One is credited to Finlay and one to Virgil Finlay. In the original publication in Fantastic the art is credited to Finlay but both pieces are signed Virgil Finlay. I generally go with Virgil Finlay in a case like that. Also one of the pieces of art is on page 2? Also, there is a weird page count of 136. I would expect 132. Since the artwork is reproduced from the original it can be given the date of the original appearance and (reprint) appended to the title. Hope you are off the road soon.--swfritter 01:31, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

1635: The Cannon Law

I updated your verified pub CNNNLWWGKK2006 with the correct title '1635: The Cannon Law'. I have confirmed this change against the title page of my first edition, and the baen ebook RTF file at webscriptions. Please check your copy to confirm that there wasn't a hole in the multiverse and something didn't slip in from another when. Thanks! Kevin 04:10, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

A note to mods checking on this submission (Since it is apparently being held for review in the queue). [Copyright page] of this title. Sorry the title page is not part of the preview that I can see. The title appears as '1635: The Cannon Law' both as the copyright title, and on the 'list of books' page following. Kevin 04:01, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
UPdate approved. Are all the editions like this where they say 1635: Cannon Law on the front cover and 1635: The Cannon Law on the title page? If so, we should note that in the publication notes. Also, if you get a chance also note what's on the spine. I see in the copyright page it uses The at the top and 1635: Cannon Law down in the LOC data block. --Marc Kupper|talk 06:53, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
To my knowledge, all editions are titled with a 'The' on the Title page (The RTF is the page break fully formatted text that is sent to the printers I believe), it just wasn't used when the front cover art work was put together, and it was also dropped form the LOC Information. Yes I can also confirm that the Spine is titled '1635: The Cannon Law'. As an additional reference, please see the other titles in the 163x series. All items to date (with subtitles), and planned have 163x: The xxxx xxxx as a title. I will put a note in the title record when I go back through the Baen 2008 titles later this weekend or early next week. Kevin 07:06, 7 February 2009 (UTC)
I uploaded an actual cover scan of 1635: The Cannon Law which shows the correct title. AndonSage 02:22, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Perry Rhodan #42: Time's Lonely One

Your verified pub of this title is own our list of magazines with a missing editor records. This probably happened if it began as an anthology and was changed to a magazine. There were several editors working about a year ago to convert all of the Perry Rhodans to magazines. I was going to add the missing record when I discovered that there is an identical pub already in the db. Because that pub already has the editor record and more extensive notes, would you consider doing a Primary Verification of it and deleting your verified pub? That would not only get rid of a duplicate record but save the time and effort to "fix" it. Thanks. MHHutchins 15:05, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

In working with my copy of the November 1973 (2nd) printing of your verified Swords and Deviltry, I see the Author's Introduction (Swords and Deviltry) is dated 1970.
