Peter Mathews (pdmathews) | 222 comments Please make the following corrections to this book:

1. The author's first and last names are the wrong way around. First name: Man-Shik. Last name: Ch'ae.

2. The original publication year of the earliest story in this collection is 1934. The title story was originally published in 1938.

Z-squared | 8580 comments For author names and order, we defer to the way it appears on book covers. Since all of the English language covers for this author have the order Ch'ae Man-Shik, it has to stay that way.

For collections of works, we use the original pub date for the newest story in the collection. Do you happen to know which story is newest and what it's original pub date was?

Peter Mathews (pdmathews) | 222 comments In east Asia, the convention is to put family name first, given name second. In the Worldcat listing, the name has been entered correctly:

As such, I would please ask you again to make this change.

The most recent publication of the stories in the collection is 1946.

Thank you.
