Silverberg[edit]

Just a note for the future: I would like to use Silverberg's quote from Phases to support Tymm/Ashley's comment that Pohl came to a special arrangement with Silverberg in 1963. Note also that T/A say it was unique; but Ashley's (later) book Gateways relates a similar arrangement between Ted White and Gordon Eklund; that's probably worth mentioning in a note.

Resolved; I found a quote in Hell's Cartographers that covers this. Mike Christie (talk) 16:09, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

To-do[edit]

  • Rewrite and expand lead Done.
  • Reorganize and compress material -- some repetition and some sequence issues. Done.
  • Clean up remainder of old material still not fully integrated, e.g. illustrator section Done.
  • Use Ortiz quotes from sandbox Done.
  • Can we keep the existing images? Check copyright on second one; what else could be used for first? It's already in the collage.
  • Use scan of back cover of first issue to illustrate "You'll never see it ...." Done.
  • Review external links -- possibly link to E.J. Gold's site? Done.
  • Clean up references and check footnotes are all organized properly. Done.
  • MOS pass Done.
  • Need to mention Avenue Victor Hugo Done.
  • p. 28 of Hell's Cartographers has Silverberg's note on how Pohl agreed to buy whatever he wrote.
  • Expand coverage of inverted L shape; use Gold's editorial quoted in Rosheim. Done.
  • Source and expand Galaxy Novels and Magabooks. Done

Galaxy Magabooks[edit]

So what were the other two? Adding them to the footnote would be fine. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 00:23, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Per Tuck, vol 3, p.746, they are:
  1. del Rey, L. The Sky Is Falling & Badge of Infamy
  2. Williamson, J. The Legion of Time & After World's End
  3. Sturgeon, T. And My Fear is Great & Baby Is Three
I'll add them to the article at some point; just wanted to jot them here to remind myself since I'm in the middle of something else tonight. Feel free to add them yourself if you like. Mike Christie (talk) 00:57, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Done, unless you want to tweak the reference. A nice selection; I have the first and did not realize it was unusual. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 01:16, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Tweaked. Thanks! Mike Christie (talk) 01:48, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
