Anyways, I think perhaps I am close to finished Hollow Earth by Rudy Rucker. Like novelists say, I don't think I'll ever be finished, but what I have done is potentially acceptable. Of course I'll add more as I come across more. Can you review and let me know what I've missed/overdone? Then I'll finish Incandescence.
It is entirely possible that I was looking at status:working books. Having said that, I note that some complete books (eg Childhoods End http://www.shelfari.com/books/20860) don't have a Ridiculously Simplified Synopsis/Glossary/Table of Contents. This is not a criticism, I'm just checking that you want us to do what can be done? I've read some of the threads on books that don't have a TOC etc, so I guess i'm just checking u do what is possible (silly question really).
Re the 'merging of editions' - I was referring to '4) Clean up the "editions" tab;' from the 'Read this first' thread. Can u point me to any other threads that suggest how to do this, or expand upon it? Do you mean delete any obvious duplications, or do we need to liaise with publishers to find editions that Shelfari may not have heard of?
But anyway, enough excuses, you're doing a great task, and I am behind, that's the long and short of it. Will jump in now and finish by this weekend.
cheers, guy, brisbane aust.
I'll write a more considered response, but at this stage, I have done more on Incandescence than on Hollow Earth. I was a little stuck with the 'merging of editions' - not sure how to verify which are 'true' editions etc.
Then again, I have looked at some books that people say they have finished cleaning and sometimes there are only synopisis and character lists completed - I will put in a few hours tomorrow night and see where I get.
Thanks for the chase up. I needed it. Also, I have been distracted reading the complete Lovecraft the last week - I don't suppose he's on the list is he?
Hey there Science-Fiction-Lover,
Sorry, I have done very little work except on the very first one, where I re-wrote the introduction, which I thought should be clearer.
I had a few issues that stopped me initially and I didn't share with the group.
Thanks for the kick, I'll work on those this week and see where I get and then comment to the group if I have any questions.
I haven't edited anything yet, because something happened in my family, and since I've been quite busy with family matters. I am reading the book at the moment, so I'll start editing when I'm finished with it, which should be in a couple of days. If I have any problems, I will ask ask in the group, thanks for asking though. :)
Also, I noticed someone else, not from the group I think, has edited some after I claimed the book. Which is good, of course, as I said I will continue his or her work in a couple of days. It will be a fun task now life is back to normal again.
Hi SFL, since I noticed that a bunch of Blade Runner books were added to Do Android's Dream of Electric Sheep I was revisiting it to make sure the correct languages were associated with the newly added editions. Do you think it would appropriate to have a sub-category of the English language books for movie tie-in editions since there are so many of them? I am not sure which ones are the original work with the new title of the movie added on for marketing purposes and which ones are actually the novelization of the movie (I did see your note on the queue and I saw Holly's response, so I know there are some of both there). I thought it might be easier for someone to find their edition if all the "Blade Runners" were grouped together, but I don't want to go too far with the subcategories. Let me know what you think.
