Tarzan meeets King Kong

I sent this novel by Owen R. Leonard, the author published it on Kindle and took it down, he later published a novel called Tzaryd Meets Simian, I couldn't find any source, but from the synopsis, it seems to be a new version of the other novel, can I publish this in the notes?Hyju (talk) 09:17, 4 October 2022 (EDT)

Yes, notes like that are great. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 12:58, 13 December 2022 (EST)

Breakthrough: The Fall of the Wall

I found this pub but I've got the idea that's not an eligible fiction title. Edit history doesn't show any user but me, who did minor edits. I couldn't find any valid informations or sources in www. Does anybody know more about this title? --Zapp (talk) 06:36, 13 December 2022 (EST)

It does not look eligible to me. I wonder if Neil Gaiman's having something in it is what led to someone adding it. --MartyD (talk) 09:54, 13 December 2022 (EST)
With both editors specialists for comics I do think that it's very likely that there are comics on the downfall of the Berlin Wall assembled in this title. However, there is the quite remote possibility that there's some kind of speculative fiction enclosed (or an illustrated story). I'd think it's best to leave it as it is, until someone gets hold of a copy (or of the original or another translation), and can have a final look.

Futures Forestalled ... for Now: South African Science Fiction and Futurism

I don't know, what that nonfiction is for? --Zapp (talk) 11:11, 25 February 2023 (EST)

It was entered as a nonfiction publication. However, as far as I can tell, it is an essay that appeared in the non-genre magazine Current Writing. I will ping the handling moderator just in case they saw something I didn't. -- JLaTondre (talk) 15:44, 26 February 2023 (EST)

John Richards

Artist 'Roger Davis' is NOT John Richards although Richards did use the name 'Davis' on several covers. Roger Davis is a real person, not a pseudonym for John Richards. The only other name used by Richards was 'Rik' on BLACK-WING OF MARS - Vargo Statten (Scion 1953); DE BRACY'S DRUG - Volsted Gridban (Scion Feb 1953); DRUMS ALONG THE AMAZON - Victor Norwood (Scion Mar 1953); REVERSE UNIVERSE - Volsted Gridban (Scion Dec 1952). —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Clockrocker (talkcontribs) .

Good day,

I need help.

I would like to have an INTERIOR ART CREDIT added for Author record # 269730 ; Carl Lavoie.

It’s in the recent

Vastarien: A Literary Journal. Vol. 6, Issue 1

and it’s the frontispiece illustration, ‘The Evil Eye'.

Here’s a link to a sample of the issue, the illustration is right after the cover page:

And here’s a link to the publisher, listing the content of the recent issue:

Thank you. And have a wonderful day.
