Riding the Nightmare
Hi, thanks for verifying my very first edit. However, I've obviously done something wrong. The stories on this collection (except 1) are all on the database already and they appear duplicated now instead of the stories already on the database being linked to the collection.
The story "Voices in the Night" first appeared on a 2018 anthology named "Uncertainties, volume III", edited by Lynda E. Rucker which is not on this database. I got the publishing date off Goodreads.
The story "The Dragon's Bride" is already on the database, but the version included here is a "revised and expanded version" to novella-length as is stated on the copyright page of the stories in the collection. I don't know if it should be linked to the story here or create a separate listing with a (expanded) credit as I submitted.
- When you type in the content records of a publication, it will create new title records for each of the contents. When the contents already exist in the database, it is better to use the Import options and import the existing records. When there are duplicates, you can go to the publication record and click the "Check for Duplicate Titles". This will give you a listing of items that match in title, author, and type and allow you to merge them. I have done that for this publication.
- When we have revised / edited works, how we handle them depends on how different the works are. If the changes are minor, we would have one record and add a title note stating that there are revisions for certain versions. When the changes are more extensive, we leave them as separate records and add title notes. I have done that here. We would only include the "(expanded)" if that is how it appeared on the title page which doesn't sound like it.
- Let me know if you have any questions on the above. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 17:03, 13 January 2024 (EST)
