Removal of page content

I would have hoped that you had moved the content to an archive page before deleting it. This would have made it easier for those who had asked questions and recorded comments to check their status. Please reconsider the decision. Thanks. Mhhutchins 05:25, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

I have created an archive of the old content in anticipation of the upcoming purge of old versions. Ahasuerus 23:26, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Appreciated. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 23:10, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

The Halloween Tree cover upload

You uploaded a cover for The Halloween Tree at more or less the same time as you edited the pub record to add the artists' names, and before a moderator could approve the change. That meant that the automated upload did not catch the artist's names and I had to edit Image:BKTG21540.jpg manually to properly record the artists on the image page. In future it would be best to wait for any artist change to be approved before using "upload new cover" unless you are willing to edit the image page yourself. -DES Talk 16:41, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

edit to The Fury Out of Time

Hi. Don't know if you can see your submission. I've placed it on hold in case you can. It contains no changes to The Fury Out of Time. Your two other submissions around that time added ISFDB-hosted cover images, so I'm guessing maybe you were doing that here and hit Enter without pasting the URL? --MartyD 17:10, 4 September 2010 (UTC)

I've rejected the submission due to lack of response here. I hope the info above will be enough to help you figure out what you intended. Thanks. --MartyD 00:05, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

The Shadow of Ararat - made notation etc.

Afternoon! This. [6]. I matched my copy to your ver and then added notation, including that my edition was not affected by note. Thanks, Harry. --Dragoondelight 21:49, 4 September 2010 (UTC)


I REALLY REALLY wish that you would notify verifiers when you add cover images or other content to primary-verified publications. It is a courtesy and the normal practice here, as you should know. -DES Talk 03:26, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Flames Across the Border: 1813-1814

You submitted an entry for Flames Across the Border: 1813-1814 which you listed as NONGENRE. However, it appears to be in fact NONFICTION, this is a straight work of history about a section of the War of 1812 between Canada and the US. The author currently has only one work on file at the ISFDB, and his wikipedia page lists him as primarily a writer of non-faction. This book appears to be OUT according to the Rules of Acquisition #10. If rhere is any reason for including the work, please post it here. -DES Talk 18:34, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Rejected after lack of response. -DES Talk 05:12, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Chung Kuo: Book Eight: The Marriage of the Living Dark

You submitted a publication of Chung Kuo: Book Eight: The Marriage of the Living Dark. This apears to be a duplicate of 267262, so i am rejecting it. -DES Talk 18:44, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

Beneath the Tree of Heaven

You submitted an edit which added a cover image to Beneath the Tree of Heaven and also added it to a new publication series, "Chung Kuo". The book is already part of a regular (title) series "Chung Kuo", and should not be made part of a publication series. See Help: How to work with series for more on publication series. -DES Talk 18:50, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

The Somnambulist

You have submitted an edit to add a cover image to The Somnambulist, AND to change the publisher from "William Morrow / HarperCollins / SFBC to "Harper". Ifg your copy is an SFBC edition it should include "/ SFBC" in the publisher name, whatever else is there. If it is not, then you are updating the wrong publication. This submission is on hold pending your response here. -DES Talk 18:54, 9 September 2010 (UTC)

There was no trade paperback edition from the SFBC of this title. It looks like someone cloned the SFBC's hc edition, but forgot to change the publisher. Submission looks good (see this OCLC record.) Mhhutchins 00:35, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Ah That makes sense. Will approve. In the mean tiem I have sent email to the address in the history of the talk page. -DES Talk 02:14, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
See ISFDB:Community Portal#Dave Sorgen aka User:Dsorgen for a follow-up thread. -DES Talk 15:50, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Duplicate of Travellers in Magic by Goldstein

I accepted the submission adding the tp of this title, only to discover that it's already in the database. So I deleted the record from your submission (which was incorrectly titled Travelers in Magic.) Mhhutchins 23:36, 14 September 2010 (UTC)


Expanded Notes in Topper from "First Ballantine Books edition" to "Stated first Ballantine Books edition. No number line. Cover artist credited on the copyright page." Ahasuerus 05:24, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Necromancer Nine

I added notes to this verified pub after a Verification request. If you see this, please check your copy for the ISBN. Thanks, --Willem H. 19:31, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Well, I know you won't respond, but just to let you know, the two entries are almost certainly the same. The ISBN on the backcover (0-441-56852-1) is used for Gordon Dickson's Necromancer. This means I deleted your's, if you want, you can verify this edition. --Willem H. 18:57, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Children of the Atom

I've put your proposed addition of the "O20"-coded Children of the Atom on hold. My reading of Help:How_to_enter_a_SFBC_publication#Conclusion is that we usually just record the additional gutter codes in the one publication (here, the "L02"-coded one). It looks like the catalog number is identical. Do you see any differences other than the gutter code? Thanks, --MartyD 03:00, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

I rejected this submission and incorporated the note about the "O20" gutter code into 292892 and also updated the Wiki page. --MartyD 14:00, 31 October 2010 (UTC)

The Trouble with Tycho

Just a note that I have moved the The Trouble with Tycho cover scan that you recently uploaded from the 1976 printing of this book to the 1983 printing. If you take a closer look, you'll notice that although the art is the same, the rest of the cover is significantly different. Ahasuerus 19:32, 25 November 2010 (UTC)


Added artist, Howard Darden, to [MNDSWPPMXX1978 Mindswap] witth the note: "Artist not credited but signature is visible". Signature appears to be identical {CDCSWLDGVF1978 to the one on this cover]. Thanks. P-Brane 01:44, 18 December 2010 (UTC).

Shallows of Night

I added an artist, notes and an actual cover scan, to Shallows of Night since I have the book in my possession. AndonSage 11:50, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

Orion in the Dying Time

I added notes to your verified Orion in the Dying Time. AndonSage 03:25, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

The Dragons of the Cuyahoga

I uploaded a cover image to your verified The Dragons of the Cuyahoga. AndonSage 22:18, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Aldair: The Legion of Beasts

Added cover for your verified here. Hauck 09:24, 26 August 2011 (UTC)

Changing Women

Hi, I've left a cover scan and notes for Changing Women (AvoNova, 1992). Why is it dated 1992-06-00 instead of 1992-07-00? --Dirk P Broer 13:45, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

User:Chavey did a primary-2 verification that included adjusting the month and noting the book provides the month. --MartyD 09:54, 30 August 2011 (UTC)

The Phoenix Guards - cover and notes

I replaced the default Amazon cover image with a scanned image, and added notes to your verified The Phoenix Guards. AndonSage 11:51, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

The Universal Prey

Added the OCLC record number. --Dirk P Broer 08:54, 9 October 2011 (UTC)


I uploaded a cover scan and added "First printing" on the copyright page under comments for Dominion by Fred Saberhagen. If you have a problem with these actions, please contact me. Biomassbob 03:17, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Great Tales of Fantasy and Science Fiction

Sorry, I had to reject your submission for adding a publication to 'The Best Fantasy Stories from the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction'. Reason: By our standards this is a variant title. What you can do is: Add a new anthology and enter the metadata (title, author, publisher etc.), but not the actual contents. These can be imported after the approval. You can make this before or after importing into a variant title of the original anthology (you'll need the title.cgi? number from the address window of your browser to do that). Stonecreek 13:43, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

I accepted the variant, but if it contains only 26 of the titles seen in The Best Fantasy Stories..., I wonder if it should just be a separate, unrelated title. That much of a difference strikes me as being a completely different anthology. --MartyD 11:22, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

City on Fire Walter Jon Williams 1998

Added Tim White as cover artist in this pub BarDenis 16:56, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

Guess I'm just wasting my time posting this but...

I held your submission adding the titles to this record because there were several problems. If you would respond to messages on your talk page, I could have saved you and me much time and effort.

Problem #1: You wasted a lot of time manually entering the contents of this record. It would have been a lot easier to just import the contents from this record (submission 1) and then removing any contents that were omitted from this edition (submission 2). Now there are 26 content titles that someone (read "me") will have to merge with the existing title records. That's 52 submissions, because I have to moderate each of the submissions as well.

Problem #2: For some reason you removed the image that you had uploaded. I can only assume this was a mistake, as why would you have uploaded it otherwise.

Problem #3: Your HTML is bad. Instead of using the break tag (<br>), you bolded (<b>) the text, and by not closing the bold tag, it went over into the contents listing.

I'll merge the records, add the image back, and correct your HTML. It's very difficult to handle submissions from editors who won't communicate. Mhhutchins 04:18, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

There is No Darkness

There is No Darkness cover art credit added for Jim Burns. The artwork itself appeared in his artbook Lightship.Ofearna 06:31, 15 June 2012 (UTC)

New Dreams for Old

In this verified pub I removed two of the notes ("Contents listing and artist (source: <a href="">Locus index</a> as of 2008-02-28) added to existing record." and "Locus index stated: page count 417, date Jun 2006. 'About the Author' p. 419. Previous page count in this record: 400."). These data are in the publication. I changed the pagecount from 417 to 419 and added other notes. --Willem H. 07:54, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

The Rediscovery of Man

I added the letter on p. 64 of your verified pub. I also added a note (and I hope all fits you and the copy you have). Stonecreek 19:35, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

The Planet on the Table cover artist

Just for the record, added a cover artist for The Planet on the Table based on my discussion here. Albinoflea 06:44, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

The Wild Shore

Added a cover scan, some notes, and entries for the maps to the first Ace printing. Albinoflea 04:24, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

Cover image for The Prince of Christler-Coke

I had to add an image license to the file that your uploaded here. In the future use the link "Upload cover scan" on the publication record, which will automatically add an image license, which is mandatory for all copyrighted images uploaded to the ISFDB server. Mhhutchins 01:25, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

A Judgment of Dragons

Corrected the Canada price on A Judgment of Dragons and added some information to notes. BungalowBarbara 04:21, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Wild Cards XI: Dealer's Choice

Re: Wild Cards XI: Dealer's Choice
Deleting "Wild Cards XI" from the title. Does not appear on title page. Adding notes about editor & assistant editor. Adding note about mosaic novel. Notifying verifiers of the changes.--Astromath 04:25, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

Swan Song and one other submission

Hello, I accepted your submission and added your note to the moderator to the publication's note field. It'd be better, if you had done it by yourself. Much of the task of editing publications (& titles & information on other items) is in sourcing the information, so that others can see how the information was achieved. This publication is a good example.

It is etiquette to inform (active) primary verifiers of any change in the publication record. As there is at least one active PV (and one more transient PV) for The Best of Walter M. Miller, Jr. you should have discussed the change with them before submitting. I have put your submission on hold waiting for it. Thanks, Stonecreek 14:41, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Cover image for Pocket ed. of The Best of Walter M. Miller, Jr.

I will delete your second upload of this image file. The first upload, which replaced the old image, was sufficient. Once that was uploaded, there was no need to update the publication record, because the URL remained the same (only the image was replaced, not the URL). You may have uploaded a new file because you saw the old image when you tried to replace it. That's because the old one remained in your cache, which has to be cleared (F5 on most keyboards) before the new file you replaced it with is visible. You should cancel the submission that's currently in the queue that changes the URL. (Go to the link "My Pending Edits".) Thanks. Mhhutchins 15:14, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Editing primary verified records

It is ISFDB policy that you notify the editors who have primary-verified records which you want to update them. If the submission adds a link to a publication's cover image or adds notes to the record, it's OK to make the submission updating the record and then leave a note on the editor's talk page. (Many active editors have a message at the top of their talk page concerning their notification preferences.) If the submission changes or adds data in any other field, you must notify them before making the submission. Thanks for cooperating. Mhhutchins 21:50, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

The Dragons of Cuyahoga

I added some notes to The Dragons of Cuyahoga. Bob 17:02, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

The Ecologic Envoy

I added notes to The Ecologic Envoy. Bob 21:27, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

3 by Finney

Are you certain that the title given in this record is the one stated on the title page? Also, is there a printed price on the publication? Thanks for checking. Mhhutchins 20:58, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

Because you don't respond to messages, I have no choice but to make changes based on the OCLC record. If this is wrong, don't make another submission to change it. Leave a message on my talk page. Mhhutchins 17:04, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

Resnick's The Branch

How is your submission to add a new record for this title different from the one already in the database? Mhhutchins 02:49, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

I forgot that you don't respond to messages on your talk page. I will reject the submission. If your copy is not the same as the current record, make another submission and make it clear in the Note field how it is different. Mhhutchins 17:05, 31 October 2013 (UTC)

I've replace the Amazon link with a scan on Prof beard 15:39, 7 December 2013 (UTC)


Hi, I identified the cover artist for Non-Stop: it is Tony Roberts, compare the cover art with this.--Dirk P Broer 20:05, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

The Prophecy Machine

Added notes and cover scan to The Prophecy Machine.SFJuggler 06:01, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Helliconia Winter

Artist for this pub's cover is credited on the cover as Oliviero Berni. TAWeiss 22:20, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

The artist's signature is visible on the artwork, not actually "credited on the cover". I've accepted the submission. Thanks. Mhhutchins 00:10, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Also, as indicated in the warning notice at the top of this page, this notification should have been posted on the talk page of the PV2 (active) editor. I'll do that for you. Mhhutchins 00:13, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

I added the Canadian price and number line to your verified

The Zombie Survival Guide

Hello, I suppose that the reasoning behind the NONFICTION label of this book is the similarity with such guides here or there (there are lots of others). In the fictive universe depicted, it's not considered as a fictive book. Hauck 17:52, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

File uploads exceeding ISFDB standards

Please resize cover image files so that they are 150 kb or less. I've done that for you in the recent files you uploaded, some of which exceeded 200 kb. Any future uploads that exceed the ISFDB standard will be deleted. Thanks. Mhhutchins 17:13, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

I updated your P1 verified Foucault's Pendulum to:

  • Change the page count from "533" to "xvi+533"
  • Change the notes from "Translated by William Weaver" to detailed notes.

I'm not intending to keep my copy and so transient verified it. --Marc Kupper|talk 21:04, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

No Transfer

Hi, and welcome back! I accepted No Transfer, but I changed the publisher to just "Vanguard Press" (which we already had), and I moved the LCCN into the notes -- the ISBN/Catalog field is only for the ISBN or the publisher's catalog number. Thanks. --MartyD 23:23, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

p.s. If you're going to be active, edit this whole page and remove the "inactive user" template at the top (it's causing that big message to be displayed). --MartyD 23:23, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Removal of Inactive User Template

Never was "inactive", just much less active than before. Always watching for old titles/editions/covers that haven't been added.

The Apocalypse Troll

I've changed the printing date of The Apocalypse Troll in the Notes to January 2000 as this matches the copyright page and the Publish Date in the record. Also added the source of the cover artist and replaced the Cover Art with a scan of my copy. --AndyjMo 16:45, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Echoes of Honor

Replaced Amazon cover art of Echoes of Honor with a scan of my copy. --AndyjMo 15:16, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Ashes of Victory

Replaced the Amazon Cover art of Ashes of Victory with a scan of my copy. Is there any reason why some of the contents are listed twice? --AndyjMo 15:24, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Crown of Slaves

I have the second printing of Crown of Slaves which states that the First paperback printing was in April 2005. Your notes say April 2003. Is this a typo? The front cover of my copy is similar to the one shown from Amazon - apart from Baen logo, A Publisher's Weekly "Best Books of 2003" star and a review from Booklist. If you look closely at the centre of the front cover just above the word STOP you should find the signature © MATTINGLY 03. --AndyjMo 21:02, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

Crown of Slaves

Hello, I've uploaded a cover for this verified pub as there was some uncertainty about the amazon image. Can you check if it matches your copy? Thanks. Hauck 05:54, 31 May 2017 (UTC)

Seventh Son

While you did not primary-verify Seventh Son I see that you scanned/uploaded the image and so may have a copy. I added a pub-note "please double-check the cover art credit. Later printings such as the 13th credit Dennis Nolan on the copyright page and James C. Christensen on the back cover. This seems to be a publisher's error as only the Nolan printing is used on those editions. This publication has a die-cut cover with part of the Nolan painting visble in the cutout. You open the cover to view the entire painting. It's possible Christensen did the artwork that's on the outer cover." --Marc Kupper 06:36, 30 June 2017 (EDT)

More Stories from the Hugo Winners, Volume 2

Hello, I've approved your submission and set the artist to Attila Hejja as per data on 4th printing (it's also and coherent with what you managed to decipher). Hauck 02:00, 6 July 2017 (EDT)

Millennium by Bova

Would you please check the title page of your copy of Millennium and see if it actually reads "Millennium" over "A Novel About People and Politics in the Year 1999"? My first printing copy shows that so I would like to correct the title to be "Millennium: A Novel About People and Politics in the Year 1999", plus replace the note with "First Ballantine Book Edition: April 1997" and "No printer's key.", and add the note "Cover art by Joseph Csatari on the copyright page".

If that is OK, I propose to then:
1. Unmerge this pub, this pub, and this pub from the existing title.
2. Make the resulting new title the cannonical title by making the existing title a variant of the new title since the new one is the oldest title.
3. Merge the three pubs named "Millennium: A Novel About People and Politics in the Year 1999" together.

Would all of this be OK with you? Phil 12:18, 26 February 2022 (EST)
