Alfred Hitchcock Presents Stories To Be Read with the Door Locked

I guess you're leaving the site, if so, good luck on your further endeavors. Anyway, I added an image and some notes to this book. Again, good luck. MLB 08:38, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

Question about "The Mysterious Stranger"

In an anthology you verified, The Penguin Book of Vampire Stories, there's a story called "The Mysterious Stranger" which has the date in the database of 1823. Now, the editor of Dracula's Precursors says that this story was "originally published in German in 1823 and translated into English soon after" and Michael Sims, editor of Dracula's Guest, says it was first published in English in 1860. If this is true, then the story should have the date of 1860 in the database (and should be merged with this record). By the way, according to Douglas A. Anderson, this story is a translation of Karl von Wachsmann's "Der Fremde", whose earliest known publication date is 1844, but that doesn't affect the question of its earliest publication in English.

Anyhow, my point is, could you take a look at Vampire Stories and see if it gives any reason to think this story was published in English earlier than 1860? After I collect replies from other verifiers, I'll either merge these records or not. Thanks! --Vasha 18:54, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Vasha, you should read the note at the top of this page. Mike does not look here anymore. Chavey 23:59, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

2020 Vision (1980 edition)

Changes: Made page numbers consistently be for the introductions to the stories rather than the start of the stories, and added a note about that; capitalization fix and moving external identifiers. --Vasha 12:54, 4 July 2017 (EDT)

Nemonymous Night

A quick note about this submission, which you created on 2019-04-29. The ISBN is already in the database with the same data that the submission would have added. Since the submission has been in the queue for 3 weeks and the data is already on file, I have hard-rejected it. Ahasuerus 14:03, 19 May 2019 (EDT)

The system duplicated my single submission (look at the numbers), and I only accepted one. I didn't think it was necessary to go to the moderator queue to see if there were duplicates. Mhhutchins|talk 13:30, 20 May 2019 (EDT)
I see. Thanks for the explanation. Ahasuerus 13:40, 20 May 2019 (EDT)

Moonstar Odyssey

Re: this book - I have been messaged on Twitter by Diane Duane the creator of the map, thus I have made changes. --Mavmaramis 12:21, 18 June 2019 (EDT)

The Acquaintance by Kealan Patrick Burke -- can you verify that this is really not a simple short story? Susan O'Fearna 04:31, 25 June 2019 (EDT)

New Worlds 6

Cover artist for this has been identified as Mati Klarwein. --Mavmaramis 12:56, 2 July 2019 (EDT)

Slap-on-the-Wrist Stories

Another quick FYI -- this was a duplicate submission, presumably created by the system behind the scenes. I have changed its status to "Rejected". Ahasuerus 19:59, 7 October 2019 (EDT)

Zelde M'Tana

Cover art for this edition is by Barclay Shaw. Credit here --Mavmaramis 15:16, 30 October 2019 (EDT)


Coraline -- I don't know if this needs to be retitled: Coraline The Graphic Novel or Illustrated version, but it definitely needs to be set as a variant as it was adapted by P. Craig Russell and about 15% of the text has been dropped or changed b/c of the illustrations... Susan O'Fearna 12:23, 19 February 2020 (EST)

Why ask me? I didn't merge it with the novel version, nor have I verified it. Please do as you please with it. Mhhutchins|talk 19:12, 19 February 2020 (EST)

Suspected typo

Hello, Michael! I changed the author name to Thomas F. Bertonneau (from Thomas F. Bertonnaeu) here, and hope that it really was a typo. Christian Stonecreek 00:11, 7 May 2020 (EDT)
