Sffgeek | 26 comments Someone has just combined Lean Times in Lankhmar which is an omnibus of Swords in the Mist and Swords Against Wizardry with Swords in the Mist (one of its components). Am I correct in saying this is against policy?

If so, is there a simple way to reverse it (I can't see an undo)? Or do I have to separate each of the editions of Lean Times in Lankhmar, and then recombine those together?

Paula (paulaan) | 7029 comments Are you sure, worldcat seems to think that the other editions are omnibus's aswell

I only checked a couple - but worldcat has the edition you link to and a few of the others with the same content.

You might want to check worldcat with the other editions

Scott | 21496 comments It shouldn't be combined with that Swords in the Mist. I've separated them.

They are (almost) all collections of stories published in magazines.

Swords in the Mist has:
- The Cloud of Hate
- Lean Times in Lankhmar
- Their Mistress, the Sea
- When the Sea-King's Away
- The Wrong Branch
- Adept's Gambit

Swords Against Wizardry has:
- Stardock
- In the Witch's Tent
- The Two Best Thieves in Lankhmar
- The Lords of Quarmall

and Lean Times in Lankhmar has all of the above:
- The Cloud of Hate
- Lean Times in Lankhmar
- Their Mistress, the Sea
- When the Sea-King's Away
- The Wrong Branch
- Adept's Gambit
- In the Witch's Tent
- Stardock
- The Two Best Thieves in Lankhmar
- The Lords of Quarmall
plus - Author's Foreword (Lean Times in Lankhmar) an essay by Fritz Leiber

I think the latter should be treated as a different book.

Thanks Scott - I replied to Paula before I realised that you had replied.
