Sshhh ...

You have verified this pub containing Sshhh ... and this pub containing "Shhhh...". I would assume they are the same story and should be varianted to the same parent. Would you mind checking? Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 16:14, 7 November 2021 (EST)

I'll try to check when I get home. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 13:45, 8 November 2021 (EST)

Birth Place

Just a quick reminder: we use "USA" and not "United States"> I am fixing a few you added with the latter. :) Annie 13:47, 16 November 2021 (EST)

I'll try to remember. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 15:01, 16 November 2021 (EST)

Stray; Linscott without the middle initial is a stray record; is that normal? --Username 22:26, 27 November 2021 (EST)

That's weird. It shouldn't be showing up as a stray. Its title is varianted to the initialed name. Maybe Annie can figure it out. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 13:43, 29 November 2021 (EST)
Ah, figured it out. For some reason, the alternate name connection hadn't been full completed. All fixed now. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 13:45, 29 November 2021 (EST)
(resolving edit conflict because I apparently managed to see this as it was posted) A stray publication means that the title is varianted but the author form is not pseudonymed. I see that you did the pseudonym so we are all set (I just fixed the language of that pseudonym while I was looking). :) Annie 13:48, 29 November 2021 (EST)

LDSF-2: Latter-Day Science Fiction

Hi, can you check this verified pub again? I think I have the same edition, except mine is a trade paperback. The rest (ISBN, price etc.) is correct. If it's the same, I would like to add the editor's "Foreward"(page [1] and Scott F. Smith's afterword (LDSF in Retrospect, page 184). Thanks for checking, --Willem 05:24, 3 December 2021 (EST)

Probably just selected the wrong one (they are right next to each other) by mistake. I've fixed that. Feel free to add the "Foreward" and afterword. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 12:01, 3 December 2021 (EST)
Thanks! and done. --Willem 14:23, 3 December 2021 (EST)

1634: The Baltic War

When preparing to PV 1634: The Baltic War and add a link to the CD-ROM pub, I noticed that the "Descendants of Henry Short" interiorart title on page xiii is missing. Any objection to me adding it? Phil 07:19, 18 December 2021 (EST)

I'll check my copy when I get home from work. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 11:26, 20 December 2021 (EST)
It does have that chart on page xiii. Go ahead and add it. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 12:37, 28 December 2021 (EST)

Here be monsters / Christopher Stasheff

I noticed that you PVed the record [1], while there's also a [2] record. They have the same publication year/month, but different prices, which seems a bit odd to me. I'm about to PV the $5.99 record, but I'm curious if your PVed copy really has the $6.99 price. Thanks. --GlennMcG 21:20, 22 December 2021 (EST)

I'll have to check when I get home from work. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 17:25, 23 December 2021 (EST)
It's $5.99, so I've adjusted accordingly. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 12:36, 28 December 2021 (EST)
So now we have duplicate records with active PVers for each. I'll point Holmesd to this discussion. --GlennMcG 14:44, 28 December 2021 (EST)
I've moved my PV over to the other one. We need to get Dcarson to do the same, unless Ahaseurus can merge the publications records. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 15:55, 28 December 2021 (EST)

The Dalemark Quartet

I was getting ready to PV The Dalemark Quartet but I noticed that the titles for maps, etc. of each of the component novels are missing. Any problem if I add them and PV? Phil 09:14, 28 December 2021 (EST)

I'll check my copy when I get home from work today. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 12:37, 28 December 2021 (EST)
There's a map titled "Dalemark" on page 128, at the beginning of Drowned Ammet. There's another titled "Prehistoric Dalemark at the Time of the Spellcoats" on page 324, at the beginning of The Spellcoats. There is also an essay titled "A Guide to Dalemark" on page 737. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 13:22, 30 December 2021 (EST)
Those match my findings as well. I'll add or import them then PV. Thanks! Phil 13:34, 30 December 2021 (EST)
Feel free to add the page numbers I'm missing, and see if the maps are credited in the copyright page. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 13:47, 30 December 2021 (EST)


Please see this submission I'm holding that would impact your verified pub. Let me know how to proceed. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 10:02, 1 January 2022 (EST)

Go ahead and approve it. It's actually a collection of shorts (five of them). They are:
  1. 冬栄
  2. 乗月
  3. 書簡
  4. 華胥
  5. 帰山
Let me know when it's approved and I'll add these. Thanks! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 22:05, 2 January 2022 (EST)
Approved. The edit added the shortfiction also. Thanks for checking. -- JLaTondre (talk) 06:36, 3 January 2022 (EST)

Five Children and It / The Phoenix and the Carpet / The Story of the Amulet

Please see this submission I'm holding that would impact your verified pub. Let me know if your version has the artwork. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 11:28, 1 January 2022 (EST)

Looks fine to me. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 22:06, 2 January 2022 (EST)

Noir Fatale

Hi, Nihonjoe! I've added an issue of Tightbeam, which reviews the individual short stories appearing in Noir Fatale, an anthology you have primary verified. The titles of two stories as reviewed by the reviewer do not match the titles you have given. I've checked the Worldcat entry on the printed book and also the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon (which only displays the Kindle version, which is what Google Books also uses). In all the cases I've seen, the short story titles by Griffin Barker and Laurell K. Hamilton are "A Goddess in Red" (as opposed to "The Goddess in Red") and "Sweet Seduction" (as opposed to "Sweet Seductions"), respectively. Please can you verify these titles in the copy you have?--Explorer1000 22:31, 5 January 2022 (EST)

Sure, I'll check when I get home. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 12:17, 6 January 2022 (EST)
They are, respectively, "A Goddess in Red" and "Sweet Seduction" in both the TOC and at the beginning of each story. I've corrected them. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 18:33, 7 January 2022 (EST)
OK. Thanks for doing that. I'll link the reviews to them.--Explorer1000 01:39, 8 January 2022 (EST)



Would you mind tracking down the Japanese edition (first if possible) for this one? Thanks! Annie 17:03, 18 January 2022 (EST)

Sure. I'll take a look. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 17:05, 18 January 2022 (EST)
Done. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 19:52, 18 January 2022 (EST)
Perfect - thanks! :) Annie 20:09, 18 January 2022 (EST)
I'm adding some other things by the author, too. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 20:09, 18 January 2022 (EST)
Even better :) Thanks for doing that. I will check for other translations later and add some more of them if they are in a language I am not totally lost in. :) Annie 20:24, 18 January 2022 (EST)


Hi. An editor asked a question in the Note To Moderators here. Could you have a look, correct the pub record if needed, and reply here? Thanks! MagicUnk 10:37, 21 January 2022 (EST)

Prologue (Foundation's Edge)

I am creating and PVing a later printing of Foundation's Edge. Whilst adding the Prologue, I noticed that a Title record for it already appears to exist: Prologue (Foundation's Edge) and the only pub record it relates to is the first printing, which you have PVd. The Prologue is recorded as SHORTFICTION but I think it should be ESSAY. The giveaway is this first sentence of a paragraph toward the bottom the first page: "In the Foundation Trilogy, the story of the first four centuries of the Interregnum is told". Can you please check the Prologue in your copy to see if it is the same and let me have your thoughts on changing the Type.
Based on the Last User Activity Date, there are 3 PVs who are still active: Willem H, Taweiss and Nihonjoe, so I have posted this note to all your Talk pages. I am a new editor, so am not sure of the correct etiquette for handling this situation, but it seems desirable to have the whole conversation in one place. So may I suggest you reply on my Talk page. Thanks. Teallach 17:45, 21 January 2022 (EST)
