Hello. I notice that there are two similar (same?) publisher records: [http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/publisher.cgi?46374 Skull Island eXpeditions] has 15 pubs which you have almost all PV'd, and [http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/publisher.cgi?45153 Skull Island eXpeditions / Privateer Press] with 20 pubs to its name that you have PV'd too. Looking at LookInside, I see a statement ''Skull Island eXpeditions, a division of Privateer Press, Inc.''. So, should both be merged, keeping the latter (as it's more precise)? Cheers.

Audible Japan and so on

If you remember we started keeping track of international Audibles and here is a bit of an update:

  • If the book is available in all markets, it seems to keep its Audible-ASIN between the Audible sites. Does not happen that often it seems...
  • The vast majority of books seem to be only on one Audible: USA or UK or Japan for example.

So for our external IDs, we either should add the rest of the markets (8+com which may be a bit of an overkill considering the numbers or we can have templates for the non-US, non-UK Audible (and add UK as a secondary). Does this make sense? I will post over in Community -- but as we held the 23 Japanese in that report there, I thought I will first come over and talk it through with you  :) Annie 16:39, 3 December 2019 (EST)

Of course I will find an example that contradicts the "always keeps its ASIN - see the two editions here and the notes inside. Still, the basics remain the same... Annie 18:17, 3 December 2019 (EST)

Speculative Japan 2

Hi Joe, I think we'll need to make some corrections to our verified Speculative Japan 2. From my copy (bought today) I've added the page numbers, plus Edward Lipsett's Preface on page 1, but noticed that nowhere in the publication are Issui Ogawa and Yasumi Kobayashi credited as editors, as is currently stated. In fact Edward Lipsett ought to have an editorial credit as he states in his preface "These stories were selected from the results of a 2006 survey of readers of SF Magazine; 'best of the year' anthologies, especially Imaginary Engines ... and my own eclectic tastes." Also the book's title is appended with "of Japanese Science Fiction and Fantasy" only on the cover – the title page, which as you know we use for the book's title, only has ""The Man Who Watched the Sea" and Other Tales". So I think the Notes need to be expanded especially as to where the Ogawa/Kobayashi credit comes from. What do you think? PeteYoung 12:33, 20 December 2019 (EST)

I'll have to look at my copy when I get home (which will be late tonight). I'll try to remember to check then. I have some real life things happening right now, so no guarantees on how quickly I can get to it. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 15:34, 20 December 2019 (EST)

Iron Kingdoms Excursions series publisher merge?

Hello. I notice that there are two similar (same?) publisher records: Skull Island eXpeditions has 15 pubs which you have almost all PV'd, and Skull Island eXpeditions / Privateer Press with 20 pubs to its name that you have PV'd too. Looking at LookInside, I see a statement Skull Island eXpeditions, a division of Privateer Press, Inc.. So, should both be merged, keeping the latter (as it's more precise)? Cheers.
