If you are around for a second

Can you look at this request for me? I will do the updates, I just need a Japanese reader to validate that I am not misreading. Thanks! Annie 02:33, 7 May 2020 (EDT)

Replied over there. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 02:43, 7 May 2020 (EDT)
Thanks again. Hope you are doing well - had not seen you much around. :) Annie 02:53, 7 May 2020 (EDT)
No problem. Yay! Real life! :) ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 02:54, 7 May 2020 (EDT)

Ashes of Victory

Can you check the spelling of the author of this story in your verified copy? This is the only story with this spelling of the name (as opposed to Elizabeth A. Vaughan) and before I make a variant, I wanted to check if we do not have a typo :) Thanks! Annie 02:23, 10 May 2020 (EDT)

I've updated it and varianted the title. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 00:30, 11 May 2020 (EDT)

Jules Verne translations

I have been documenting the various translations of Jules Verne's works and trying to identify a piece of text from each translation so editors can position their publications under the correct title record. You are on record as a primary verifier for one or more publications for which I am looking for text or which are placed under a generic translation title. I would be grateful if you could assist in this by checking your copies, as listed below, and providing the initial text for missing translations or an indication of the translation for those unspecified. These are listed on the Jules Verne Translations wiki. Thank you. ../Doug H 14:32, 10 May 2020 (EDT)

Thanks, I'll update the pub and move to the right title record. ../Doug H 09:19, 11 May 2020 (EDT)


When you have a moment, could you please take a look at this transliteration change? TIA! Ahasuerus 12:18, 7 June 2020 (EDT)

I forgot to reply, but I looked at this one and corrected some spacing a week or so ago. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 19:27, 17 June 2020 (EDT)
Thanks! Ahasuerus 20:32, 17 June 2020 (EDT)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I'm holding an edit that would change the date on your verified Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. As there is not a secondary source listed for the date, I'm assuming the current date is from the pub. Would you please confirm? If it is, I will reject the edit & add a title note regarding the difference between the listed publication date and the actual publication date per secondary sources. If it's isn't, I will approve and tweak the pub note regarding the source. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 17:58, 15 June 2020 (EDT)

Sorry, didn't see this until now. I've expanded the info to be more specific. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 19:07, 17 June 2020 (EDT)

Babelfish, Vol. 1 -- new Japanese magazine

Hi. Would you do me a favor when you have a chance and review everything in Babelzine, Vol. 1 (including publisher)? See User_talk:Tocchan#Babelzine_1. I did the best I could with it after getting no response. He doesn't seem to respond to talk page messages; I don't know if that's a language barrier problem or something else. It might be worthwhile trying to explain in Japanese. Thanks. --MartyD 08:17, 12 July 2020 (EDT)

I'll try to take a look at it tomorrow. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 19:54, 12 July 2020 (EDT)
I added the rest of the contents as this magazine publishes only SF, fantasy, and weird short story translations. I also added a cover image. As for Tocchan, s/he never replies. I'm not sure why. I've tried in English and Japanese, to no avail. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 18:16, 13 July 2020 (EDT)
Thank you very much. Should we remove the non-genre flag? And can you perhaps identify an actual editor or editors? I set it up as non-genre with the "Editors of Babelzine" credit because I thought it was a general literary magazine. --MartyD 09:48, 14 July 2020 (EDT)
Yes, I've removed the non-genre flag. I couldn't find anything regarding named editors. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 17:50, 14 July 2020 (EDT)
