PLEASE NOTE:

If you're adding a cover image, notes or external id's to any of my VERIFIED PUBS, there's no need to inform me. I will see the change on my recently changed primary verifications. If you're adding other data and explain the source in the notefield, or if you're correcting obvious mistakes and explain in the note to moderator, there's also no need to inform me. This is ONLY for cover images, notes, external id's, additional data and corrections. If you want to change any other field, or ask me something, add a new section to my regular talkpage! Thanks, Willem

Warrior's Apprentice

I think the cover artist is incorrectly credited on your printing of Warrior's Apprentice. I have a later printing where the cover art is credited to Gary Ruddell, and it's clearly different than the Gutierrez cover of the first four printings. I'd like to change the cover artist and add a note to your printing indicating the discrepancy. TAWeiss 08:15, 1 September 2019 (EDT)

I think under our current rules the artist must be credited as stated in the publication (is Gutierrez), but I also think you're right, that the attribution is wrong. I would suggest making the coverart title a variant of the title record by Gary Ruddell, with an explanation in the notes. Thanks for spotting this! --Willem 14:50, 1 September 2019 (EDT)
I've made the cover credited to Guiterez a variant of the Ruddell cover for Warrior's Apprentice. Thanks for the guidance. Tom TAWeiss 10:00, 2 September 2019 (EDT)
You actually changed the credit to Ruddell and added a title note. That is not what I meant. In the moderating process the titles were merged, and the note was deleted. I unmerged the mess, added the right credit (as stated in the pub), merged again and varianted the title to the Ruddell entry. See here for the result. --Willem 10:42, 2 September 2019 (EDT)
I tried to make it a variant using the MakeVariant option. Not sure how that went so wrong. Thanks for cleaning it up. TAWeiss 22:13, 2 September 2019 (EDT)

De terp en andere...

Hi Willem, I noticed you already updated the De terp en andere Sf-verhalen... with PPN ref & ISBN. Thanks for that! One question though: looking at the cover scan, the title of one of the pieces is Het begerenswaardig lot van de ranken. In contrast, the contents title record is listed as Het begerenswaardige lot van de Ranken. If it's without an 'e', then there's no need for the variant. Could you check what the publication says? Thanks! MagicUnk 04:36, 2 September 2019 (EDT)

I saw your duplicate entry before you deleted it again. 'Het begerenswaardig lot van de ranken' was a typo, corrected now. The variant is necessary anyway, because Thomas Wintner is a pseudonym of Vincent van der Linden. Thanks! --Willem 10:25, 2 September 2019 (EDT)
Yup. Apologies for the duplicate. My bad. Thanks for the correction. Regards, MagicUnk 12:10, 2 September 2019 (EDT)

Tussen de Wielen

Cover artist for this is Franco Storchi, it's the same art as on Cittadino della galassia / Sesta colonna. Horzel 16:51, 17 September 2019 (EDT)

Thanks! Artist and notes added. --Willem 05:19, 18 September 2019 (EDT)

Schaduw & Dwergenstaal and Schaduw & Drakenstof

Hello Willem. As you've PV'd both pubs could you check if they -really- are part of the *M series? As they are published under the Uitgeverij M imprint (they are, aren't they?), they would be the only two outliers as all other *M series books have been published by Meulenhoff. And if they really are outliers, we may want to make a note of that in the notes :) Thanks in advance for checking, MagicUnk 09:18, 19 September 2019 (EDT)

You are right. Thanks for noticing this, it was probably a copy/paste error. I removed the publication series from both. Also removed Het Jeruzalem Virus (was by Uitgeverij M) and added the 4th printing of Huis Atreides (was not part of the M=SF series). The series should look better now. --Willem 10:33, 19 September 2019 (EDT)
Super! Thanks! MagicUnk 10:56, 19 September 2019 (EDT)

Zwarte Beertjes

Hi Willem, could you have a look at this request for help? Thanks! MagicUnk 10:00, 19 September 2019 (EDT)

Added my 2c there --Willem 11:05, 19 September 2019 (EDT)

Note in Moderators note field

Hello Willem, I noticed you updated the notes of Op zoek naar Zei. I'm always wondering then what exactly you've changed/updated. No need to notify me on my talk page, but could you add a brief note into the Moderator's note field, please? Would be most appreciated. MagicUnk 11:35, 24 September 2019 (EDT)

You're right, I should have added a note. I came across this title while working on the cleanup report for Dutch titles without notes, adding the translator template. To my surprise there were two nearly identical entries for 'Op zoek naar Zei', while I was sure there had been only one printing. The only difference between them was the date/publisher/number code on the copyright page (D/MCMLXXVI/0199/151 vs D/MCMLXXVI/0199/56). It seems I copied the notes from De hand van Zei and forgot to change it to the right number. I didn't want to bother you with questions, so I deleted my original entry and moved my verification to the new one. There was a note explaining the difference in codes with a link to my pub, so I had to remove that as well. Sorry, --Willem 14:23, 24 September 2019 (EDT)
Ah, I remember. That was an early submission of mine. If I recall well, I did that on purpose to reflect there existed at least two different codes for Op zoek naar Zei . Or so I thought. I will double check my copy tomorrow just to be sure :) MagicUnk 16:35, 24 September 2019 (EDT)
Yup, 151 all right :) Cheers MagicUnk 14:42, 25 September 2019 (EDT)

The Best from Fantasy & Science Fiction: 9th Series

You are PV2 for this edition: http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pl.cgi?285576 I have submitted an OCLC external ID. Hifrommike65 7:38, 3 October 2019 (CST)

In the pub notes, I clarified the cover and spine title as "Flowers for Algernon and Other Stories" as a reference to the 1968 film, not the story's popularity. Hifrommike65 17:06, 3 October 2019 (CST)

Busted Flush

I PVed the pb of Busted Flush and found that one of the titles was wrong. I was wondering which title showed up for the hc version. In the pb, the title is Double Helix: Until the Daybreak, and Shadows Flee Away instead of Double Helix: Until the Shadows Flee Away Could you check your copy? Thanks TAWeiss 19:35, 14 October 2019 (EDT)

I probably forgot to check all titles when verifying this one. The title is as in yours, Double Helix: Until the Daybreak, and Shadows Flee Away. I'll ask Marty to approve your edit. Thanks! --Willem 02:36, 15 October 2019 (EDT)

The Iron Tactician

Hi Willem, could you check your copy of The Iron Tactician whether it has Catalog ID information on the spine and/or on the copyright page? According to the publisher's website, the catalog number of the tp edition should be NCP109. Is there also catalog info in your copy for the limited hardback edition too? Thanks! MagicUnk 17:10, 21 October 2019 (EDT)

My copy has 'NCP110' in the spine, and on the copyright page 'NCP 109 (limited edition hardback) / NCP 110 (softback)' Hope that helps. --Willem 14:09, 22 October 2019 (EDT)
Perfect! Thanks! MagicUnk 15:30, 22 October 2019 (EDT)

Tros

Re this book. I picked up a copy of this edition today but wanted to check something. Notesstate: Other prices: 6/- in U.K. (old price). My copy only has the 'new' price (30p) on the back otherwise my edition matches. Could you check your copy for this. --Mavmaramis 08:46, 1 November 2019 (EDT)

The old price (6/-) is on page [2]. If yours has that too, it's the same edition. --Willem 09:09, 1 November 2019 (EDT)

Helma

Re this book. I'm going to edit the cover artist to match with this as the rear of mine does say "Illustration by C. Achilleos" --Mavmaramis 08:52, 1 November 2019 (EDT)

Approved. Do you want me to variant this title to Chris Achilleos? --Willem 09:12, 1 November 2019 (EDT)

De Expert / De Planeet van de Dageraad

Another one bites the dust. Cover artist of this is the same as on Nebula #15, so the cover artist is James Stark. Horzel 16:53, 17 November 2019 (EST)

Stark is a pseudonym for Robert C. Goldston, so I changed the credit. Thanks for finding this! --Willem 07:44, 20 November 2019 (EST)

Nick and the Glimmung : PDK

Hi Willem, you are PV here and I just thought I'd draw your attention to this for the Phil Parks interior art content. Maybe it's some use to you. Thanks, Kev. BanjoKev 13:59, 19 November 2019 (EST)

Thanks! Imported in my pub. --Willem 07:40, 20 November 2019 (EST)
You're welcome! Kev. BanjoKev 19:40, 20 November 2019 (EST)

Sorry, Willem!

I am very sorry for my words that seem to have hurt you. Sometimes my satirizing alter ego seems to get too much hold of me. Plus, I have been in a state of mind in which I took the mistakes, illogical and chaotic series personal, and thought that almost nobody else cared for them. Well, that obviously was wrong! I can only promise to make it better in the future, and to help bringing things into the acclaimed order. Christian Stonecreek 09:07, 20 November 2019 (EST)

Fantasy Art Masters: The Best in Fantasy and SF Art Worldwide Dick Jude

Thank you Willem for sorting out the Content title here and so now all appears correctly on Dick Jude's page too :) Could I ask you what I should have done? I suspected unmerge but I don't think that was right and I was going word-blind on the Help. Kev. BanjoKev 04:36, 21 November 2019 (EST)

The unmerge was indeed not necessary. The title can be changed at title level. What went wrong was the follow up edit by the moderator (changing the title type to essay, and the title to the introduction). This removed the container title, and the entry on Dick Jude's page. Easy to correct though. I just added a new NONFICTION title and merged it with the existing title record (from my variant edition). --Willem 05:59, 21 November 2019 (EST)
Thanks for the explanation - surprisingly, I understand it :) Kev. BanjoKev 01:40, 22 November 2019 (EST)

The misdated covers mess

Hi Willem,

As you were the other moderator besides me who was trying to get that covers mess sorted lately, you may be interested in this :) Annie 15:13, 21 November 2019 (EST)

Thank you Annie. I added my 2c there. When this report is ready, I will work on it. --Willem 15:37, 21 November 2019 (EST)

typo or not

Hello Willem, I made a typo and found one here.I buy an l. Regards Henna 17:11, 21 November 2019 (EST)

Thanks! Corrected now. --Willem 15:22, 24 November 2019 (EST)

First on Mars

Cover artist of this is confirmed to be Ed Emshwiller, see Diamanten aus der Sonne which has the same cover art and a readable EMSH signature. Horzel 07:49, 23 November 2019 (EST)

Same of course for Wat is Science Fiction? Horzel 07:52, 23 November 2019 (EST)
Thanks for another one! --Willem 15:29, 24 November 2019 (EST)

Jo Olluyn vs Jo Ulluyn

Hi, De opkuis achteraf by Jo Ulluyn in Fantastisch Strijdtoneel III appears to be a typo, author-wise, for Jo Olluyn. see e.g. https://verbeeldingsliteratuur.fandom.com/nl/wiki/Fantastisch_Strijdtoneel_III, http://www.meznir.info/uitslag-fantasy-strijd-brugge-2012/ .--Dirk P Broer 22:08, 24 November 2019 (EST)

Thanks for finding this! --Willem 03:51, 25 November 2019 (EST)

The Iron Tactician (bis)

Hi Willem, could you check your copy of The Iron Tactician once more and check if your copy also has PoD information on the last page? My copy shows
Lightning Source UK Ltd
Milton Keynes UK
UKHW042050091118
[implying printed on 09-11-2018]
332089UK00002B/297/P
to the right of a QR code. Thanks! MagicUnk 10:37, 29 November 2019 (EST)

The good news is, my copy also has PoD information. The bad news, it's completely different. I bought my copy when the book was first released, and it shows the following:
CPSIA information can be obtained
at www.ICGtesting.com
Printed in the USA
BVOW06a1421191216
471246BV00001B/3/P
Hope that helps --Willem 14:14, 29 November 2019 (EST)
Yes it does! I suggest we add to the notes that this pub is actually PoD - see for example Ghost Frequencies for what I'd like to record in the notes (and I'll add your info too). My idea is to have one pub record for PoD, whatever the actual printing info may be. You Ok with that ? (and I'm not going to bother contacting C1...)
Also, I noticed in my copy the novelette starts on p.5, not on p.7. Yours too? Thanks! MagicUnk 15:34, 29 November 2019 (EST)
Good idea, will you do the edit? I believe the current practice is to have one record for PoD publications, unless there are major changes (new cover or something like that). And yes, the novella starts on page 5 (sometimes i'm nearly blind, or the keyboard has a will of it's own...) Thanks for spotting this. --Willem 16:10, 29 November 2019 (EST)
I will submit the update! Thanks Willem. MagicUnk 16:29, 29 November 2019 (EST)
We may need to reopen this discussion at some point as more and more copies exist - same record for a copy printed in the same place is fine but these seem to have been printed in two different countries. POD or not, this is similar to the USA/Canadian printings of days past. Most of the US based editors will have US printed PODs (for US originated books anyway) but seems like we will have some interesting mixed data from the non-US based ones and for non-US books. Just thinking aloud... Annie 16:47, 29 November 2019 (EST)
I've been thinking about that too, but since PoD's can be printed all over the world (I have a NewCon Press Novella printed in Italy), I'm not sure it'll be a good idea to have a separate pub record for each because, what criteria to follow? There will be many, many print runs spread across several countries... For now I think we're good as long as we record the anecdotal info in the notes as I've done now for The Iron Tactician. Maybe at some point it'll become untenable and we'll have to discuss alternatives, but not just yet :) MagicUnk 16:58, 29 November 2019 (EST)
I Agree. I'll have to start putting the information in the notes. Lots of PoD pubs in my collection. --Willem 17:02, 29 November 2019 (EST)
We record the 66+ printings of some of the older books as separate printings (or we would if all are added); separate countries and printers recording won't be even close to these numbers I suspect. Ignore the dates (in case they do not print in batches or print in small batches) but... :) As I said - just thinking aloud for now... Notes are good for now - or at least recording on a wiki page somewhere so we have the data and can make decisions based on that. Annie 17:08, 29 November 2019 (EST)

Knock Three-One-Two

The cover artist of this is Sam Peffer (aka Peff), according to the-art-of-peff blog which is very knowledgeable about his work.

The same goes for The Screaming Mimi. Horzel 18:14, 7 December 2019 (EST)

Alexandria Poster—1998

Somehow this was set as a short fiction which does not make sense in this book and with this artist so I set it to interior art. If it is indeed a short fiction, I will be happy to revert it and add notes to that effect. Annie 02:47, 10 December 2019 (EST)

Would you mind checking this one in the same book? Is the author really credited with the Japanese name? Annie 03:35, 10 December 2019 (EST)
The first is indeed interior art. Thanks for catching this. The second is credited to Hajime Sorayama. Makes me wonder about the other (english) interior- and coverart credited under the Japanese name. I think all of them are wrongly credited. --Willem 04:03, 10 December 2019 (EST)
Very likely... I will chase them down at some point and work with the verifiers. Will you fix this one? Annie 04:15, 10 December 2019 (EST)
Fixed this one. Most variants are from a pub verified by Susan Ofearna. --Willem 04:19, 10 December 2019 (EST)
I suspect it is one of the authors who got messed up when we allowed non-Latin characters in the author names - someone swapped badly... Annie 04:24, 10 December 2019 (EST)
Yes probably. But relatively easy to fix. --Willem 04:26, 10 December 2019 (EST)

Foundation and Earth

Hello Willem,

Can you check the essay here? We seem to have two separate essays with that title - one from 1982 and one from 1986. Is there a date somewhere on it? We have the 1986 one here as well if we need to go down to comparing the text. Thanks! Annie 11:46, 10 December 2019 (EST)

And on the same topic but for the Dutch editions, can you stop by here so we can sort out the translations?. Thanks! Annie 11:56, 10 December 2019 (EST)
Both are the 1986 variant. My editions are now connected to the right title. I'll drop a note on MagicUnk's page. Thanks! --Willem 14:19, 10 December 2019 (EST)
Thanks! I think this was the last one still wrongly connected (minus one I am waiting a confirmation on but I already moved based on what I am seeing). One mess sorted. Onto the next :) Annie 14:32, 10 December 2019 (EST)

Voorbij Deze Horizon

Cover artist of this is Richard Courtney, since some copies of Deus Irae with the same cover art show the initials RLC, which are those of Richard Courtney, see for example Count Brass. Horzel 16:02, 10 December 2019 (EST)

Edit approved. Credit also added for the other Dell printings of Deus Irae, and Dutch cover varianted. Thanks, --Willem 15:17, 7 January 2020 (EST)

Typewriter in the Sky

Hello, I recently acquired a copy of Typewriter in the Sky. I want to update the notes with additional Canada price, statement this is first printing, and that novel ends on p192 (and about the author on pp193-197). Are you OK with that? Also, I couldn't find a reference to where the month of publication came from (none given in the notes). Any idea? Thanks! (I also asked Rtrace here) --MagicUnk 16:31, 13 December 2019 (EST)

No problem. Go ahead. The month is probably from Locus1, the editor who put it there could have forgotten to add a Locus1 verification. --Willem 16:36, 13 December 2019 (EST)
Thanks! MagicUnk 17:03, 13 December 2019 (EST)

Dead Man's Hand

Would mind looking at this submission that impacts one of your verified pubs? I'm guessing the excerpt is that story from the collection, but how is it actually titled in the pub? Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 13:31, 31 December 2019 (EST)

And see this response. Thanks. -- JLaTondre (talk) 15:53, 31 December 2019 (EST)
Sorry for the late response. The response from Rogbju is correct. Since we take the title from the titlepage, it is correct as it is, but the author should indeed be Stephen Leigh, and there should be an explanation in the title notes. Can you approve the edit, then I can add the note and explain this to Rogbju. Thanks, --Willem 06:53, 2 January 2020 (EST)
Approved. -- JLaTondre (talk) 18:05, 2 January 2020 (EST)
Thanks! Note added and editor informed. --Willem 14:53, 3 January 2020 (EST)

The Tourist's Guide to Transylvania

I've added contents to this and will variant the contents to the original covers. Horzel 08:08, 2 January 2020 (EST)

Thanks! Good job. --Willem 14:53, 3 January 2020 (EST)

De Wereldbrekers

Cover art of this is currently attributed to Chris Moore. Based on style, the cover artist should be Eddie Jones. This is corroborated by [1] and by White Dwarf #10 (with the same cover art) which states "Cover illustration by: Eddie Jones" on page 5. Horzel 07:59, 5 January 2020 (EST)

It gets supported here too.--Dirk P Broer 09:41, 6 January 2020 (EST)
I adapted the credit & notes. Thanks, --Willem 15:30, 7 January 2020 (EST)

Fire & Blood

Willem, I just received a copy of this novel from Subterranean Press. They credit the INTERIORART to both Gary Gianni and Doug Wheatley, and specify that the color plates are by Gainni. They do not specify the artist responsible for the extensive B&W full- and part-page illustrations, or for the endpapers, which are blue and white and glossy. I suspect the non-color illustrations are the work of Wheatley. Can you briefly describe Wheatley's work in your pub? For instance, what are the first few illustrations? Bob 19:38, 7 January 2020 (EST)

In my copy, all interior art is credited to Doug Wheatley, and there are no color plares inserted. The endpapers are coffee colored, and have a portrait of 10 probably kings and queens. I scanned the first four illustrations, they are on page 0 (bp), 11, 17 and 24. I will delete them again after you compared them to your edition (way too expensive for me ...). --Willem 15:50, 8 January 2020 (EST)
The B&W artwork appears to be the same in both editions. The endpapers are different; mine shows four armored knights in a snowstorm. Thank you for your efforts on this, while I was slow, it was much appreciated. I'll apply notes appropriately to my pub. I'm not a big fan of Martin. I read the first two books in "The Song of Fire and Ice"; the first was super, the second and then the third totally turned me off and I never finished the series. I never noticed when "Fire & Blood" came out until Subterranean Press published it and decided to try it. The Sub Press books are so nice it's hard to resist them. Bob 17:40, 11 January 2020 (EST)
Deleted the images. I never read the Fire & Ice books, I did read 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms' though, wonderful book. --Willem 16:05, 16 January 2020 (EST)

Zwart Boek vs. Zwartboek

Hello Willem. I suspect the series name should be 'Zwartboek' instead of 'Zwart Boek' as evidenced here, for example. Could you perhaps double check how the series is referenced in your PV'd pubs? Thanks! MagicUnk 12:37, 8 January 2020 (EST)

On the covers the series is referenced as "Zwart" over "Boek" as you can see on the scans. On the copyright pages however it's "Zwartboeken". I changed the series name. Thanks! --Willem 15:18, 8 January 2020 (EST)

Wonderwaan magazine

Hi Willem. This might be of interest to you (see also here). Any advice? MagicUnk 17:44, 8 January 2020 (EST)

Added my 2c on the helpdesk. Eventually I wil be finished with verifying my collection (if I live that long). --Willem 06:22, 9 January 2020 (EST)
Wonderwaan #10 contents on wonderwaan.info seems suspicious (63 stories for only 32 pages???). So, if you feel like it... :) MagicUnk 12:57, 9 January 2020 (EST)
It seems unlikely, but it's true. 63 short descriptions of fictional places and cities. We have worse in the database, see this one. Have fun! --Willem 14:16, 9 January 2020 (EST)
Really?!? Quite baffling... I know what to do, then. Thank you sir:) MagicUnk 17:23, 9 January 2020 (EST)
Hi Willem, they're all in - your turn :) The earlier entries will need additional work as the contents of several issues could not be found. For those the contents were available, no artwork could be entered, so these need work too. I think the entries for which there's a downloadable pdf available will be fairly accurate. There's basically two remaining questions I'm having:
1) I'm not at all certain that NCSF is the actual publisher. I did find out that there's (or at least there was) a close relationship between NCSF board and Wonderwaan editors, and Wonderwaan was sent to all NCSF members - whether that is sufficient evidence that actually NCSF is the publisher, I'm not sure about. Do you have or can find definitive proof for or against? Should we change publisher to Wonderwaan? If we do, from what issue onwards? #49?
2) the Wonderwaan edition of the Edge.Zero anthologies is also quite muddy - I have now added the A4 Wonderwaan edition as part of the magazine series - see my notes in issues 39 and 43 for details, even though these do have an ISBN number, next to their ISSN. Keep it like this? (ps. weird that the anthologies for 2015/2016 are published in paperback & magazine format... can't fathom why that'd be done)
Do note that the latest issue (49) has changed to A5 format, and has received an ISBN too, next to its ISSN - keep it as a magazine?
Do have a look and let me know what you think ! Regards, MagicUnk 12:15, 12 January 2020 (EST)
Thanks for doing all this work! I will move Wonderwaan up my priority list. I was working on my reference library when the discussions about variant title dates broke loose, and have spent most of my ISFDB time working on the cleanup reports since then.
1) Anything that needs to be changed can be changed when I work with the publications in hand. NCSF was at least the publisher for the early issues (and most likely for all issues published together with Holland SF). This probably changed when Holland SF was no longer published (2016 to 2018, so #37 and further).
2) Edge Zero is another thing. I will have to look at the credits in the magazines themselves. At the moment nothing needs to be changed.
#49 is the first not to be sent to NCSF members. Thus the change of format (A5 or TP??). I'll see it when I get there. Also still have the last 6 issues of Pure Fantasy to do and the other Dutch magazines, like Apollo, Utopia, Space Story, Griezel Story, Ruimteschip Promeet, Vlaamse Filmpjes and countless others. Sigh --Willem 14:04, 12 January 2020 (EST)
You're welcome. As for the other magazines, point me to any online resource and I'll see what I can already enter. MagicUnk 16:14, 12 January 2020 (EST)

De Cowboy die Lady Liberty Beminde

Hi Willem. I've varianted the story De Cowboy die Lady Liberty Beminde in your PV'd Gouden dwaalwegen to De cowboy who loved Lady Liberty under the assumption that this story has been published first in Wonderwaan, notwithstanding that De Cowboy die Lady Liberty Beminde has a date of 2007-00-00 as opposed to 2007-04-00 for the latter. You OK with that? (I can add a note to the respective title records to clarify). Thanks! MagicUnk 19:06, 8 January 2020 (EST)

You are right. I don't think Wonderwaan ever reprinted a story published elsewhere. Thanks! --Willem 06:20, 9 January 2020 (EST)

another 'incomplete'

Hi, I found another 'incomplete': De Stem in de Woestijn, but instead of deleting the template and adding 'the non-speculative titles' after 'Also contains' I decided to report it to you, so you might be able to catch this all-too eager template pusher.--Dirk P Broer 17:51, 31 January 2020 (EST)

Thanks for this. It's probably the last of my verifications with the incomplete template. --Willem 06:10, 1 February 2020 (EST)

The Best of If Volume 1

Cover artist of this is currently given as Brian Boylan, while the cover artist of Donovan's Brain is given as C. Achilleos. Achilleos must be correct, see his site. Award Books and Tandem Books shared quite a few covers. Brian Boyle (Studios) was Achilleos' agency or employer or something. Horzel 09:48, 10 February 2020 (EST)
