Removal of Science Fiction Fan Catogory & Literary Critic Category[edit]

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[edit]

Year's Best Fantasy 8 (from Tachyon) has been out for some time. Year's Best Fantasy 9 is forthcoming from (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[edit]


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 (talk) 15:15, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Reports of David's Death[edit]

Both Locus magazine [1] and a friend of his [2] 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.

I've requested semi-protection on Wikipedia:Requests for page protection and it's been granted for three days Richard Gadsden (talk) 11:49, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
Many much thanks for that. Reynardo (talk) 11:59, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. Tvoz/talk 18:30, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

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)
