Talk:David G. Hartwell
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
There are some errors in Hartwell's bibliography replicated from the ISFDB that have been corrected.
I presume much of the info on this page came from here: http://www.panix.com/~dgh/incorporated.html and http://www.panix.com/~dgh/publisher.html and from various other parts of his old panix.com website. The info probably came over from a bio on the ISFDB. KC Pleasantville 16:51, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Lack of sources
Unless sources to support the material in this article are forthcoming, it will be stubified with just basic information. The request for sources has been there since January 2007. Unsourced material will be moved to talk, until such time these sources are provided. ≈ jossi ≈ (talk) 22:43, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
- Jossi: What is it you feel is not sourced? Can you be more specific? That may be why you aren't getting what you want.
- Most of the info on the careers of editors exists primarily in print sources, as discussed previously with another admin. See Category_talk:Science_fiction_editors. It is labor-intensive to dig up, but it can be obtained. --Pleasantville 23:05, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
Removal of Science Fiction Fan Catogory & Literary Critic Category
Please restore this category. Among the many other things, Hartwell is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the World Fantasy Convention; one of the Administrators of the World Fantasy Award, and one of the Administrators of the Philip K. Dick Award. He has been an active science fiction fan since the 1960s.
I'm sorry your feelinga are hurt Jossi, but this edit, removing Hartwell from the Science Fiction Fan category is really inappropriate.
Also inappropriate is your removal of the category "Literary critic." He is the owner, editor, and publisher of one of science fictions's major literary critical journals (available as a membership benefit through both the Science Fiction Research Association and the International Assocation for the Fantastic in the Arts). The also writes there on a monthly basis. Also, his non-fiction book Age of Wonders is literary criticism, as are the story notes for a majority of his anthologies.
Jossi, please confine your following a me around the wiki, editing the same articles as I do, to contructive contributions. These edits cross the line into vandalism. Pleasantville 11:13, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Book list needs updating
Year's Best Fantasy 8 (from Tachyon) has been out for some time. Year's Best Fantasy 9 is forthcoming from Tor.com. (I'm told this is in the january LOCUS, though I haven't seen the ref.) Year's Best SF 14 is forthcoming from its usual publisher, HarperCollins. Presumaby the books already published should be added to the entry. --Pleasantville (talk) 13:37, 23 January 2009 (UTC) aka Kathryn Cramer
Spanish part removed
I removed the part about him that was written in Spanish. If someone wants information about him in Spanish there should a page about him on the Spanish wikipedia. Not in this page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:15, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
Reports of David's Death
Both Locus magazine  and a friend of his  have reported David's death after a fall and the bleed on the brain. I'm still trying to work my way through the rules, but could a semi-protect be put here until we have confirmation from the family or another reasonable source? (I'd give these two a 3/5 but we need a 5/5 level source) Reynardo (talk) 08:22, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
- Both reports are wrong - Locus based on PNH"s incorrect report. As of about 1:00AM EST, well after Locus and nielsenhayden's incorrect posts, David's wife reported that he is not expected to survive, but that he was still alive. There have been no further updates yet, and probably won't be before morning EST. Semi-protection would be very welcome, to put a pause to the good faith but premature edits. Thanks.

Hi. Kathryn Cramer, David's wife here. He will not recover, will not live, but as of 2AM his heart was still beating. I will post more when we have more information. --Pleasantville (talk) 12:48, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
