I've noticed that there is no link from this page to Galileo magazine. Can one be created? --Alibrarian 06:47, 2 Jul 2007 (CDT)

Stub created, populate away! :) Ahasuerus 10:43, 2 Jul 2007 (CDT)

Also, Unearth, please. --j_clark 19:14, 7 Jan 2008 (CST)


Please add Magazine Sirius which is now defunct and which was published from 1976 till 1989 in former Yugoslavia, nowadays Croatia. It has been published monthly, and there were 162 Numbers. I have complete Collection and would like to make catalogue of this most important pure SF Magazine in former Yugoslavia. --Obivatelj 23:33, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Betwixt

Betwixt is a new speculative fiction magazine that just published their third issue in April 2014. Should they get an entry? http://betwixtmagazine.com/

Yes. If you feel that it should be in the database, please create individual records for each issue. Go to this help page for field-by-field instructions. If you need further assistance, ask at the ISFDB: Help desk. Mhhutchins

Questar

This magazine was published between 1978 and 1981 (13 issues). Most issues included original and/or reprint sf stories (though the first couple issues had no fiction, I think; but the last few issues credited H. L. Gold as fiction editor). Is there a reason there are no records of it here, or may I start creating records of individual issues?--Steeltown Jim 23:14, 21 April 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps because it was not really a science fiction magazine, but one that was directed toward sf in film and comic books. It would probably best be labeled as a "nongenre" magazine, similar to Starlog, Famous Monsters of Filmland, Fangoria, etc. If you choose to create records for it, they should only be for issues which contained fiction, and only the fiction should be recorded in the contents. The editor credit should be entered as "Editors of Questar". These standards follow those outlined on this help page for entering nongenre periodicals.
BTW, it would have been better to post this message on the ISFDB:Community Portal. This page is intended to be a discussion page for this page. It was only by chance that I happened to notice that changes had been made to it. Thanks. Mhhutchins|talk 00:45, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
