Alessandra Psst. Hephaestus Books (currently #40, "Swedish Novels Including ...") is NOT a reprint publisher. It is a Wikipedia-scraper. All of its "books" are simply bound printouts of Wikipedia articles and other online resources they can get for free which are *about* the books it lists in its titles, but are not the books themselves.

Hephaestus Books is very deceptive that way. You would think a book called "Swedish Novels Including The Wonderful Adventures of Nils..." etc. would be a book of Swedish novels including "The Wonderful Adventures of Nils," etc.

But no.

They claim to be an academic resource supplier, which may be how they get around the laws regarding misrepresentation and deceptive practices. I dunno.

Anyhow, that book does not belong on this list.


message 2: by Christopher (new)

Christopher "The Emperor's New Clothes" by Victoria Alexander appears to be an already released book.


message 3: by Heather (new)

Heather Christopher,

You're right. It was released back in 1997, but I put an allowance in the list description for out-of-print novels. That way, if someone was waiting for a particular book to be re-issued, they would see it here.

Thank you for letting me know. It's hard for me to keep track sometimes, so I appreciate it when other users let me know if there's an inappropriate book on a list.

Gotcha, I wasn't sure because the Kindle version had already been released.
Thanks for the response :).
