Amara Tanith (aftanith) I've run into this issue a few times lately, and since I can't find a definitive answer anywhere, I figured I'd ask.

What is the proper course of action for anthologies that have over fifty contributors?

I would list the remainder in the description field. e.g., "additional contributors:
Name 51
Name 52
etc."

Amara Tanith (aftanith) Okay, thanks. :)

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Also, even though we normally list them in the order they appear on the cover or in the book, I'd list any GR authors from the second half in place of non-GR authors in the first half (unless, of course, there are 51 or more GR authors contributing to the book).
