Histórias Extraordinárias

Hello. I've accepted your submission, but made the following changes to conform to our guidelines concerning magazine entries:

  • added date to titles - see bullet point Magazines here
  • uploaded cover
  • added note
  • updated EDITOR title
  • added series name to EDITOR title, moved note on magazine & URL to series record, no series number needed

The result is here.

Some questions:

  • Does the title of HE Recomenda really include Short reviews of ... as part of the title? If not, that should go into the notes field of the HE Recomenda title record instead.
  • Can you measure and provide me with the exact dimensions of the magazine?
  • Page count: for magazines we include front and back cover - can you confirm that the total number of pages, including front and back, is 40 pages?

You can reply by pressing the small edit to the right of this message's title. I will be monitoring your talk page for a reply. Also, do read through the information provided in the welcome message above. If you intend to contribute more, it is a helpful resource to get started.

Hello and thanks. I have 4 more magazines to add, but I wanted to add just the first to see what should be changed, so I can add the rest accordingly.
Ok, so here are the answers and a few questions :)
1) Regarding the HE Recomenda: The title of the section is the same for all issues, it means "Histórias Extraordinárias Recommends". In the 1st issue, There are short reviews of the movies and series, but there is not an actual title, just the names of the movies and series and a short text for each one. In the following issues, the section "HE Recomenda" has titles, like "Personality: Presenting Ted Chiang", "Series: 'The Expanse'", "Literature: 'The Anomaly'", "Series: 'Severance'", etc. Please advise on the right way to include this section of the magazine. :)
My recommendation would be to add the title HE Recomenda (Histórias Extraordinárias, Dezembro 2020) to each issue. Repeating the magazine title between () is for disambiguation purposes - doing it like that will prevent an (accidental) merge of identical titles. At a later stage, and if you would wish to do so, it is then possible to add a title series name to these title records, like what has been done for Ansible Link in Interzone.
In addition, mention the details in the notes field. You could add, for example, following info into the notes: HE Recomenda contains the following sections: Short reviews of "Captive State" (movie), "The Vast of Night" (movie) and "Lovecraft Country" (Series)
2) The magazine measures 21x28 cm. I used what seemed to be the closest match.
Quarto might be the better choice. But since there's not much difference, bedsheet is fine afaik. What you can do is mention the exact dimensions in the notes field. That will allow anyone that comes after you to update the format to a better choice, if it would ever be needed. MagicUnk 08:47, 2 September 2022 (EDT)
3) The magazine has 40 pages in total. Page numbering in the physical magazine considers the cover as page 1.
OK MagicUnk 08:47, 2 September 2022 (EDT)
Now, my turn to ask a few questions :)
a) "Carta aos Leitores" (in page 5) means "Letter to our Readers" and is an editorial - present in every issue. Is it OK to include it as I did? It will be present for all issues.
yes, that's OK MagicUnk 08:47, 2 September 2022 (EDT)
b) Issue 1 of the magazine was released in december 2020. "Dezembro 2020" just means "december 2020" in Portuguese. Is it necessary to include the "Dezembro 2020" as part of the title and the number of the issue as a note?
Yes, it is required (and the date is on the cover) - see this link for details MagicUnk 08:47, 2 September 2022 (EDT)
c) In some issues, the interior artwork for a short story is repeated at the end (reduced, or just part of it). Should it be indicated again even if it is essentially the same from the beginning?
Only if it is your intention to be all-inclusive, then yes, that could be repeated. Contents records with the same title can be disambiguated, eg by adding [2], [3], etc... after the title name. Note that if interior artwork is not directly associated with a story, then a common way of doing that is to enter the magazine name with type INTERIORART. See this example of how it's done (scroll down to the bottom). MagicUnk 08:47, 2 September 2022 (EDT)
