Internal consistency pass done. The Dozor (Watch) series is the only one entered so far since the first two books in the series are to be published in July 2006 and January 2007 respectively. Ahasuerus 00:29, 3 Jul 2006 (CDT)

Dnevnoi Dozor

Dnevnoi Dozor is published (at least some editions are) as by Sergei Lukyanenko and Vladimir Vasilyev. See the cover of a Russian edition at Wikipedia RU. --Roglo 04:11, 30 Jan 2008 (CST)

I was going to change our records as per the results of my January 2007 investigation, but it slipped my mind :( As I wrote at the time:
I have been thinking about Lukyanenko's bibliography ever since I read a rec.arts.sf.written discussion a few days ago. The first challenge is that the second volume in the series (which his US publisher calls a "trilogy" even though volume 4 has been out for over a year) was originally published "as by" Lukyanenko and another Russian writer, Vladimir Vasiliev. I have since confirmed that the Russian edition of volume 2 in the series (but not volumes 1, 3, and 4) was indeed a collaboration or at least published as such although the forthcoming US edition lists Lukyanenko as the sole author. This is easy enough to fix using our Variant Title/pseudonym support. Ahasuerus 14:05, 23 Jan 2007 (CST)
Vladimir Vasilyev wrote his own novel "Лик Чёрной Пальмиры" (Face of the Dark Palmira) set in the world of the Day/Night Watch. And there is also an anthology of stories set in this world ("Мифы Мегаполиса" - The Myths of Megapolis). So it is a multiauthor series now. --Roglo 14:48, 1 Feb 2008 (CST)
Oh great, another shared world -- just what the genre needs! :) And it looks like he opened up yet another one of his universes ("Labibint otrazhenij" and sequels) a few years ago. We don't have to worry about that one just yet since we generally don't do comprehensive foreign language biblios unless the author's work has been widely translated the way Lem's or Verne's books have been. However, a quick check of Lukyanenko's blog suggests that his English language publishers are clamoring to buy at least some of his other novels, so it's a good bet that we will see more of his old stuff coming out in English in the next few years. Unless, of course, his "Watch" books turn out to be an exception and the next book bombs, but that seems somewhat unlikely. Oh well, that's why are here :) Ahasuerus 16:12, 1 Feb 2008 (CST)
