Note: Image uploading isn't entirely automated. You're uploading the files to the wiki which will then have to be linked to the database by editing the publication record.
Please be careful in editing publications that have been primary verified by other editors. See Help:How to verify data#Making changes to verified pubs. But if you have a copy of an unverified publication, verifying it can be quite helpful. See Help:How to verify data for detailed information.
I hope you enjoy editing here! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); this will insert your name and the date. If you need help, check out the community portal, or ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! MagicUnk 15:22, 13 January 2022 (EST)
Hello, and welcome to the ISFDB. In this submission (which I've rejected since no changes were made to the data) you state In the July, 1959 issue of "The Dude" magazine, John Christopher has a short story called "Happy as a Dog." It's definitely sci-fi, and definitely the same John Christopher as No Blade of Grass, since in an editorial in the issue they make note of his recent movie deal. We'd need information about the issue of "The Dude" in question to be able to add the story to the database. Do you happen to have a link to the copyright page, contents page, or similar so that we can derive the needed information for an entry in the DB? Thanks, MagicUnk 16:41, 13 January 2022 (EST)
