Lansdale's Savage Season

Hi Susan -

I believe you had mentioned in another thread that your books were in storage. When you have access to them again, could you double check the ISBN for Lansdale's Savage Season. I added the Worldcat number for this one, but it has a different ISBN, 0929480538 (or perhaps 092948052X, but I think that's for the slipcased edition). The ISBN we have, 0-929480-22-8, matches the one listed in Locus1, which is likely the source for our record (It predates your verification). While I suspect that one of the secondary sources is incorrect, I suppose it is possible that the book bears multiple ISBNs. Once you can verify what's in the book, we can add a note explaining the discrepancy. Thanks for checking, though I know it may be a while. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 09:13, 22 January 2023 (EST)

I'll check when I can Susan O'Fearna (talk) 16:12, 22 February 2023 (EST)
OK... on the front flyleaf it says: ISBN 0-929-480-22-8 Trade $25.00 / ISBN 0-929-480-23-6 Limited Set $100.00
On the copyright page it says Signed & Limited Edition ISBN 0-929480-53-8 / Trade Edition ISBN 9-929480-52-X / LCCN 90-070490 Susan O'Fearna (talk) 22:49, 6 November 2023 (EST)

Damnation; All other issues on ISFDB are published by Books, not Press. Can you check and fix if necessary? --Username (talk) 11:05, 23 April 2023 (EDT)

I can't get *to* my stuff, but I'll change it per your recommendation Susan O'Fearna (talk) 01:23, 24 April 2023 (EDT)
OK, but I see from an online search that many sites refer to the publisher (apparently one of several over the magazine's history) as Damnation Press while many other sites refer to it as Damnation Books. So I wonder if their name changed somewhere along the way; it would still be good if you could check this issue and any other issues you may have PV when you get a chance to verify how they were named inside the issues since online info can't be trusted. --Username (talk) 09:40, 24 April 2023 (EDT)

After the End; I added 2 links in a pending edit and I see intro is titled "Introduction: Before After the End", so if your copy says the same it should be fixed. --Username (talk) 11:49, 3 June 2023 (EDT)

Veiled Web; An archived copy was uploaded in 2014, the same year you PV this edition, and while adding the link just now I noticed page count entered here is 357, not 355, and cover artist is entered as Nielsen, not Nielson like it says on the copyright page (same in the original PB), so if yours is really 355 pages and artist is Nielson can you fix those? I'm also going to ask PV of 2nd PB printing about this because they entered artist as Nielsen, too, so either they made the same mistake or the publisher corrected the name in later printings. --Username (talk) 12:08, 24 September 2023 (EDT)

355 numbered, a blank page then "about the author" = 357
damn, it is spelled Nielson Susan O'Fearna (talk) 23:02, 6 November 2023 (EST)

Mark Powers / Dresden Files comics

Hi, just noticed you have some of the Dresden Files graphic novels verified. As such, I imagine you will be getting pings from me changing the (co-)author from "Mark Powers" to "Mark Powers (comics)". Please see ISFDB:Community_Portal#Mark_Powers_-_two_different_people for the background on this - hopefully it shouldn't be a controversial change. Thanks! ErsatzCulture (talk) 18:52, 19 November 2023 (EST)

Works for me... if they're different people we definitely need to differentiate them! Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:09, 20 November 2023 (EST)

Book of Ballads; Cover art and 7 of the contents have the wrong month, 10 instead of 11. --Username (talk) 21:19, 19 November 2023 (EST)

All of these were previously published in individual comics format AND there was the BALLADS book published earlier with only part of the content... Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:11, 20 November 2023 (EST)

Firebirds Rising; I added link in a PENDING edit and I think page count should just be 530 with brackets removed from contents at the end because the numbers are clearly visible at the tops of the pages. --Username (talk) 17:35, 21 November 2023 (EST)

I checked and it does have page numbers thru 530! fixed it Susan O'Fearna (talk) 19:32, 26 November 2023 (EST)
Susan, I'm holding your edit. In addition to changing the page numbers, you are converting from an ISBN10 to an ISBN13. We record the form that is on the pub. The Internet Archive scan shows the ISBN10 on the copyright page and the back cover. An ISBN13 would be unusual for a 2006 book. Does yours actually have a ISBN13? Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 17:39, 27 November 2023 (EST)
yes, on the bar code Susan O'Fearna (talk) 20:41, 27 November 2023 (EST)
I see it now. I focused on the labeled ISBN10. I approved the edit and added a note about the ISBN placement. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 19:29, 29 November 2023 (EST)
Cool, thanks - now for all the rest of my pending edits... Susan O'Fearna (talk) 13:34, 2 December 2023 (EST)

Hyenas; Page count of copies on is 100, not 104. Also, the 2 stories need their page numbers added. --Username (talk) 10:13, 25 November 2023 (EST)

Someplace To Be Flying; LCCN is for another book so I noted that. --Username (talk) 11:04, 2 December 2023 (EST)

I just tested it and it goes to Someplace to Be Flying Susan O'Fearna (talk) 13:36, 2 December 2023 (EST)
LCCN on copyright page is wrong so I made a note of that in the notes section and searched LoC site and got the right LCCN which was off by one number. --Username (talk) 17:44, 3 December 2023 (EST)
OK, that makes more sense :-) Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:38, 4 December 2023 (EST)

Out of Avalon

Can you please double check the title page of your Out of Avalon? I have the first printing and while the cover has "An Anthology of Old Magic and New Myths", the title page of mine is "Tales of Old Magic and New Myths". Since we record per the title page, I will be correcting the first printing and wanted to know if yours should likewise be corrected or made a variant. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 19:53, 6 December 2023 (EST)

I've updated the first printing. Please let me know what your second printing title page states. Also, please double check the page count. In the first printing, the last 2 pages are unnumbered so I switched mine to xi+338+[2]. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 08:44, 10 December 2023 (EST)

Whispers, August 1982

Hi Susan

I'm going to clean up the title of our mutually verified publication of Whispers, August 1982. We currently have the title as "Whispers #17-18, August 1982". However, the standards for magazine titles allow for either using the date or the issue number, but not both. The date is also preferred. I'll move the issue number into the notes. Please let me know if you have any concerns. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 07:18, 8 December 2023 (EST)

A Dance with Dragons Audiobook

Hi Susan

I've been catching up on entering my audiobooks. I own a digital copy of George R. R. Martin's A Dance with Dragons which I purchased on July 12, 2011. You have verified what appears to be the same edition that was released the same day. I see two changes I would like to make to the record. First, the cover appears to be the same as the Larry Rostant cover, and I'd like to import that cover. While the cover illustration of my copy is essentially the same, it does differ in some of the text and lacks the gold bar at the top. My cover can be seen here. Does the cover of your copy match mine, or does it match the one we currently have? Could you check yours and let me know? If yours doesn't match mine, do you recall if you obtained yours in 2011 or more recently? I suspect that the cover we currently have may be from a later publication and not what was issued in 2011. Thanks for checking, and do let me know if you're OK with importing the Rostant cover. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:48, 1 January 2024 (EST)

My sister and I have a shared library due to the Households and Family Library - she's the one who bought that particular book - some time in March of 2019... when I created the audible record here I linked to the amazon record, so it's likely the cover has changed Susan O'Fearna (talk) 23:56, 1 January 2024 (EST)
I should mention that I download all my audible purchases and manage them with iTunes. Thus, I have a saved copy of the cover present when I purchased it. If you keep your audiobooks in the cloud and use the Audible app, I believe that Audible will always show your their current cover in their app, as they do on their website. I'm guessing that you and your sister keep your copies in the cloud and thus it is uncertain which cover was present when the book was purchased in 2019. I think we should probably have two publication records, one with the original artwork with the 2011-07-12 date. Another would have the current artwork and since we can't pinpoint the date the cover changed, with the unknown (0000-00-00) date. I would also add a note to that record stating that the cover changed sometime between 2011-07-12 and 2023-04-26 (the date you verified the record and linked to the current cover). Assuming that we do this, and that you don't know which cover was present in your copy when purchased, would you prefer that your verified record be the one with the original cover and the 2011 date, or the current cover (with the gold bar) and the unknown date. Whichever you decide, I'll update the current record and add the second one, so you won't have to move your verification. Please let me know your preference. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 19:15, 2 January 2024 (EST)
for those books/stories *I* purchase or listen to I save the cover at that point for my nerd-base :-) but since Lisa got that one... because I save them to a massive off-line hard drive so I can listen to them away from the internet Susan O'Fearna (talk) 18:17, 3 January 2024 (EST)
I had forgotten that you host a server with much cover art that is in our list of sites giving us permission to link. Since you don't know what cover was present when the book was purchased, are you OK if I change the cover on the existing record? I will also create a new record for the new cover. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 19:06, 3 January 2024 (EST)
knock yourself out - I just like them to be in here :-) Susan O'Fearna (talk) 13:37, 4 January 2024 (EST)
All done. Let me know if you see anything else that needs changing. Thanks! --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 18:48, 4 January 2024 (EST)

Olivia de B.; Shouldn't cover artist have the same last name as the other credits? --Username (talk) 19:42, 2 January 2024 (EST)

Journey to the Center of the Earth

Hi Susan

I've got another audiobook with a change in cover that we both own, Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth read by Tim Curry. My copy has this cover without the yellow Audible flag and with Curry's signature appearing above his name. I purchased my copy on March 6, 2012. Could you check your records and see if your cover is the same as the Amazon cover linked or matches mine. If you don't have records for this one, I can handle it the same way as I did the Martin. I'll also note, that I was able to match the translation based on this page and have linked it to the others where the translation has been identified. Thanks in advance for your help on these. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:56, 4 January 2024 (EST)

I actually PREFER it without the store branding! thanks!! Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:37, 5 January 2024 (EST)

The Handmaids Tale Audiobook

Hi Susan

I expect I'll keep finding these. Your copy of Atwood's The Handmaids Tale is listed with Marcellino artwork. My copy was purchased on December 15, 2012 and does not have artwork on the cover, which can be seen here. My copy would also be part of the A List Collection publication series. Can you determine whether yours has the illustrated cover, or the text cover? I'll happily clone the existing record to ensure your verification stays on the proper record. Let me know which cover you believe that you have, or if you can't determine, which record you would like to have your verification. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 14:04, 7 January 2024 (EST)

That's another one my sister got... I've only ever seen it with the artwork cover but you can do what you think is appropriate! Susan O'Fearna (talk) 14:52, 8 January 2024 (EST)
Thanks. I left yours as the one with the artwork and adjusted the date. As before, let me know if you have an issues with the changes. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 19:10, 8 January 2024 (EST)

The Hobbit Audiobook

Hi Susan -

I've got another one, the record for Tolkien's The Hobbit has the newer cover with the small RB logo in the lower right hand corner. Whereas, the copy I purchased on October 1, 2013 has the older red bordered cover. I'm under the impression that Recorded Books changed their trade dress fairly recently, within the last 1-2 years, but that's just my best guess. Do you think your copy likely had the earlier cover, or is this one that you purchased in 2023 when you verified it? Thanks for checking. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 20:31, 11 January 2024 (EST)

another one my sister bought, feel free to do whatever you wish to it - I'm waiting for the rumored Stephen Fry or Martin Freeman versions... Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:05, 12 January 2024 (EST)

Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith

Hi Susan -

I've come to the first volume of the Collected Fantasies of Clark Ashton Smith, The End of the Story. My copy was purchased 2014-05-05 and my cover lacks the "Only from Audible" banner. Unfortunately, I can't find a high quality image of that cover. The image downloaded into my iTunes from 2014 is here. I'll also note, that the audio book does not appear to have the introduction, the note on the texts, nor any of the story notes, alternate versions and other back matter from the paper edition. However, it does have an excerpt from the second volume in the series, The Door to Saturn. Further, this was published by the Audible Frontiers imprint. I would guess that the further volumes in the series will require similar changes. None of mine have the yellow banner. However, I'm working through my library in the order I purchased them and have not gotten to the other volumes yet. While I recall that you prefer the image without the branding, do you know whether the cover of your edition has the banner or not? Can you pin down when your copies were purchased. Let me know, and I'll make sure we have records for both covers, and for the other volumes when I get to them. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 07:21, 17 January 2024 (EST)

I bought it as a "free to audible members" but haven't had a chance to listen since I got so sick and spent so much time in hospital over the last two years, but it was Sept 2021 (maybe Oct) and mine always had the yellow banner so I can't confirm the contents except what the audible description says. Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:46, 17 January 2024 (EST)
I see. They series is all in Audible Plus. I've cloned the publication after making the changes. While I do recall that the essays were missing, I had a listen to the opening and closing and have verified they are not there. Happily, that's how I found the excerpt. As before, let me know if you have any concerns with my changes. I'll handle the other volumes similarly. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 18:51, 17 January 2024 (EST)
Works for me Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:44, 18 January 2024 (EST)

S&S II; I added link and pages to this 4th printing but it says printed in Canada on copyright page, you say in one of your edits that you have the book in hand so if you still have it can you verify that it says Canada? I don't see any indication on title page that publisher is Canadian (I think those say NAL of Canada or something) so maybe DAW started printing in Canada around that time but the books were still American publications? --Username (talk) 11:05, 21 January 2024 (EST)

I'll try to get into the garage after work today... Susan O'Fearna (talk) 09:44, 5 February 2024 (EST)

Scalzi's The Dispatcher

Hi Susan -

Another cover question. You uploaded a new cover for John Scalzi's The Dispatcher on August 13, 2019. It has the "Only from Audible" flag in black and white as well as "Audible Original" across the top. My copy does not have any of the audible branding and can be seen here. Further, there is a newer cover from Audible that has the flag in yellow and I've cloned the publication here. I downloaded my copy on October 4, 2016. I'd like to either revert the cover of our mutually verified copy to the version without the Audible branding, or leave your upload in place and change the date to unknown with a note that it was reissued sometime between 2016-10-04 and 2019-08-13. I'd then clone the record for the other edition and one of us would move our verification. Let me know if you agree and how you'd like to proceed. I think changing the date on the existing record is probably a bit easier. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:14, 30 January 2024 (EST)

as for The Dispatcher, I'd swear when I bought it the cover was a Vincent Chong cover... I'll for-sure check my other drive on that one Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:21, 5 February 2024 (EST)
Just ran across another one. My copy of Bradley's The Mists of Avalon has this cover and was purchased 2016-09-19. Whereas, you've verified this record on 2023-04-23 which is, I believe, a newer cover. I'd like to change the date of your record to unknown with a note that it was issued between 2016-09-19 and 2023-02-13. I'd also clone it with the earlier date and the earlier cover. Do you have any objections to those change? Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 22:02, 30 January 2024 (EST)
Not a bit - that's another sister-bought book... I read MZB but not her Avalon books Susan O'Fearna (talk) 12:33, 31 January 2024 (EST)

Neverwhere Bonus Story

Hi Susan -

I discovered an odd thing while adding my audiobook of Gaiman's Neverwhere. My copy was purchased in 2016 and has a 2007 production date within the book. However, my Audible library shows a 2017 edition with an increased length (13 hours, 48 minutes vs 12 hours, 33 minutes). This appears to match your verified copy, but also shows a new cover. I downloaded the new copy and added it here. To account for the change in length, I noticed that there's a note on the cover of your copy that mentions that it includes the story How the Marquis Got His Coat Back. I used audible's cloud player and found that the story begins at about 41 minutes into chapter 20, in case you want to verify. I've added it to my record with the newer cover. I'm only mentioning it as you may want to import the story into your copy. I don't really expect Audible to replace my purchases with newer editions, but as they gave me an extra story, I suppose I can't really complain. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 14:27, 3 February 2024 (EST)

I'll check, but I think audible automatically updates, so it'd be cool if I have Marquis Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:23, 5 February 2024 (EST)


Hi Susan -

Found another one. You've verified this copy of Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five. The copy that I purchased on February 28, 2017 has the same cover, but without the "Only from Audible" flag in the bottom right corner. I'll clone this to make two copies, one for each cover. Do you think your verification should stay on the one with the flag or the one without? I'll also point out that we have the title as "Slaughterhouse-Five or The Children's Crusade: A Duty-Dance with Death" and the author as "Kurt Vonnegut, Jr." However, the audiobook has the shorter title of simply "Slaughterhouse-Five" and the author as simply "Kurt Vonnegut" with out the Jr. I'll change both those at the same time unless you have an objection. Let me know which cover you think belongs with your copy. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:23, 5 February 2024 (EST)

I've READ Slaughterhouse Five but I hated it - that was another book my sister bought (I doubt she listened to it, but she got it!) - so another instance where you can do whatever you want with it :-) Susan O'Fearna (talk) 09:59, 6 February 2024 (EST)

Hi Susan

Hope you're feeling better. I've got another one. My copy of Gaiman's Coraline has this cover which has a red bar at the bottom stating "Unabridged". I purchased and downloaded my copy on 2017-09-29. I see that your verified copy has a cover without the red bar. I also see that you uploaded the cover of your copy on 2019-08-06 and you verified the copy on 2018-12-16. I'd like to change the date of your record to unknown with a note that it was issued sometime between 2017-09-29 and 2018-12-16. I would also clone yours for a record for my copy with the earlier date. Please let me know if that sounds OK. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 18:55, 9 February 2024 (EST)

of course... 07-24-2018 was my purchase date if that helps in any way Susan O'Fearna (talk) 10:14, 12 February 2024 (EST)

All Systems Red

Hi Susan - I've come across another one where there was a cover change. You've verified Martha Wells' All Systems Red on 2023-04-26. I purchased my copy on 2018-02-21 and it has the older Recorded Books trade dress with the red bars as seen here. My sense is that the change from the red bars to the small RB in a lower corner occurred sometime in 2023. Do you think the current Amazon cover is accurate to your edition? I'll clone to make another record with the other trade dress based on your answer. Sorry to have to keep asking you about these, though it is interesting to see where our libraries intersect. Hope you're doing OK. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 19:06, 14 February 2024 (EST)

3-29-2021 was my purchase date - feel free to do whatever you wish, thanks! Susan O'Fearna (talk) 11:29, 15 February 2024 (EST)

The Lions of al-Rassan

Hi Susan -

Found another one. Your verified copy of The Lions of al-Rassan has the cover with the "Only from Audible" flag. You added the record and verified it on 2018-12-02. My copy has this cover without the flag and was purchased on 2018-06-10. We seem to be getting very close to the day when Audible started using that flag. If you purchased your copy on December 12, 2018, then I would suggest adjusting the date on yours to "2018-00-00" as the flag was added sometime between June and December. If you bought yours much earlier, I could change the cover on your record to the version without the flag and add my verification. I'd also like to change the publisher to the "Audible Frontiers" imprint which is how it is stated within the audio book. Please let me know how you'd like me to proceed. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:51, 29 February 2024 (EST)

you can do whatever you like with these - I like to see all the different covers :-) Susan O'Fearna (talk) 16:38, 1 March 2024 (EST)

Martin's Fire & Blood

Hi Susan -

I've found another one. Your copy of George R. R. Martin's Fire & Blood that you verified on 2023-04-26 has a HBO tie-in cover which is consistent with that date. My copy was purchased 2018-11-20 and has this cover. Given the difference in the dates, I'm going to go ahead and adjust the publication date of your record with a note narrowing down the cover change as best we can. Please let me know if you have any concerns with my changes. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 16:14, 2 March 2024 (EST)

The Fireman

Hi Susan -

I have a question about Joe Hill's The Fireman. I see that we are listing a story, "What If There Was Just a Little Bit More Story?" as included with the novel. I haven't actually listened to the novel yet, but looking at the track listing in the Audible app, the last track before the End Credits is titled "Delivery". I also jumped around at the end of that track and didn't detect a separate story. Are you sure that the story is included in the audio edition? I'll leave the story in place until I hear from you. However, I am going to replace the Amazon image with one that we host. I'm also going to use the Narrator template in the notes. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 18:42, 3 March 2024 (EST)

Hirsch's Sovereign

Hi Susan -

Hope you're doing well. For Jeff Hirsch's Sovereign, your copy which you verified on 2020-02-26 has the yellow "Only from Audible" flag. The flag on the cover of my copy which I downloaded 2019-02-20 is white (seen here). I had a peek at for this one and it looks like the change in cover happened sometime between 2019-04-05 and 2020-04-05. I'm going to go ahead and clone your record and adjust the dates. I'll also add the Audible Original publication series. Let me know if you have any concerns about these changes. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 08:26, 9 March 2024 (EST)

Similar differences between the covers of your copy of Les Bohem's Junk and my copy, and I'll be proceeding with similar edits. Again, let me know if you have concerns. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 12:06, 9 March 2024 (EST)

sounds like a plan to me Susan O'Fearna (talk) 15:18, 11 March 2024 (EDT)

Christmas Horror Volume 1

Wil you check the title of your verified publication. All the others show 'Christmas Horror: Vol. 1' on the title page. Thanks, John Scifibones 07:49, 16 March 2024 (EDT)

the title page is actually an image and has vol, like the cover but the copyright page reads: CHRISTMAS HORROR VOLUME. 1

His Majesty's Dragon

Hi Susan -

I'm going to adjust the dates of Novik's His Majesty's Dragon. My copy has this cover and was purchased on March 31, 2016. Given your verification date of 9/20/2023, I assume that you have the current cover. I'd also recommend deleting the excerpt of Throne of Jade. I've got a copy of the paperback as well, which does include the excerpt, and I listened to the end of the audio version and the excerpt is not present there. However, I won't delete it from your copy without your agreement. Do let me know if you have any concerns with the date changes. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 12:11, 16 March 2024 (EDT)

The same situation exists for Throne of Jade and Black Powder War. My copies purchased in 2016 have these covers: 1 and 2. Neither audio book includes the excerpt from the next book in the series and I've verified this with the paperback copies. It's also interesting that the audio book itself gives the publisher as "Books on Tape" for all three of these. This isn't surprising as BoT is an imprint of Random House. In any case I'll be changing the dates for these as well but will hold off on deleting the excerpts until I hear from you. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 18:06, 16 March 2024 (EDT)

My sister bought the Temeraire books, so I'm not sure what they were when she did or even when she did, but I do have plans to listen to them here as when I listened to them it was off the overdrive/library, so I'm ready to re-listen... Susan O'Fearna (talk) 03:15, 17 March 2024 (EDT)

Stephen Fry's Sherlock Holmes

Hi Susan - I've got some changes I'd like to make to Sherlock Holmes narrated by Stephen Fry, which you've verified and which I will once I'm done with the changes. First, I think we should make this an OMNIBUS instead of a COLLECTION, especially since it contains several novels. I actually was adding a publication with the original cover here when the software flagged your copy as a potential duplicate. I hadn't caught it earlier since I was looking for omnibuses. I'd also like to import the missing content and remove the note stating that it's missing. I'll also swap the Amazon image for one of ours, and use the Narrator template. Finally, I would change the date of our copy to unknown. The latest copy on with the old cover without the yellow Audible flag is from 2017-09-17. My copy was purchased on 2019-10-27 and has the flag, so I would add a note that the new cover occurred sometime between those dates. Please let me know if you are OK with these changes. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:15, 22 March 2024 (EDT)

cool, was considering doing that - it was already IN here when I verified it but changing type is such a pain... Susan O'Fearna (talk) 16:52, 23 March 2024 (EDT)

Salvatore; Should this be as R. A. so it will be in the record with all the author's other works? --Username (talk) 21:43, 13 April 2024 (EDT)

Definitely Susan O'Fearna (talk) 15:36, 21 April 2024 (EDT)

Brin's Glory Season

Hi Susan - It's been a while since our libraries crossed. I'm going to update our mutually verified copy of David Brin's Glory Season. The original publication didn't have the Only from Audible banner which was added between 2017-09-25 and 2019-10-07. I'm going to change the date to unknown and add a note about the range of dates when it was added. I'm also going to change the publisher to "Audible Frontiers" as that is how it appears within the book. As always, let me know if you have any problems with these changes. Hope you're doing well. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:19, 25 April 2024 (EDT)

Looks ok Susan O'Fearna (talk) 01:44, 22 May 2024 (EDT)

Death: The Time of Your Life; I think Clarie Danes should be Claire, famous actress. There's a fourth printing on that says printed in Canada. --Username (talk) 10:08, 26 April 2024 (EDT)

I think so, too... I'll try to pull the book this weekend and verify the spelling Susan O'Fearna (talk) 01:45, 22 May 2024 (EDT)

Lisdoonvarna; Fixed/added info. --Username (talk) 09:51, 1 May 2024 (EDT)

I see updated fields but no changes... weird Susan O'Fearna (talk) 01:48, 22 May 2024 (EDT)

Chesley Awards; Title is & Fantasy Art, not and Fantasy Art. --Username (talk) 15:13, 9 June 2024 (EDT)

OK Susan O'Fearna (talk) 02:15, 10 June 2024 (EDT)
Title still needs changing if your PV copy agrees. --Username (talk) 18:45, 20 July 2024 (EDT)


I made a couple corrections after approving the submission creating this publication. Look at the edit history of the pub an title records, let me know if everything looks correct. You must have been tired when you submitted this one. John Scifibones 20:55, 9 July 2024 (EDT)

I'm not sure what you mean, but it looks OK Susan O'Fearna (talk) 18:01, 20 July 2024 (EDT)

Cover of Butler's Wild Seed

Hi Susan -

Could I get you to double check the cover of the eBook of Octavia E. Butler's Wild Seed? Mine differs slightly from yours in that it has red borders at the top and bottom with the Open Road logo on the bottom as well. My cover can be seen here. If yours lacks those elements, I'll clone the record for a different publication. If not, I can upload the image from my copy. Let me know. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 21:38, 18 July 2024 (EDT)

I've found another one with similar differences between the cover you uploaded and the one in my eBook edition. My copy of Greg Bear's Eon again has the red borders with the Open Road logo at the bottom. Also the dimensions seem a little different. My cover can be seen here. Could you double check your copy to see if we have different covers? Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 08:13, 20 July 2024 (EDT)
the differences may be because mine are the HumbleBundle editions? Susan O'Fearna (talk) 18:02, 20 July 2024 (EDT)
That would explain things. I'll clone your records to add mine with the different cover. I'm not sure if yours should have an ASIN as they didn't come from Amazon, but I'll leave that up to you. Thanks. --Ron ~ RtraceTalk 18:56, 20 July 2024 (EDT)
up to you Susan O'Fearna (talk) 19:13, 20 July 2024 (EDT)
