What I Didn't See: Stories

The ebook edition doesn't have a number of pages. Mine says 161 pages. Thanks!

220 I just came across the following, but I don't know if there's anything to be done about it:
Mitch Hedberg was a stand up comedian. The books attributed to him appear to be fake ebooks made up of Wikipedia articles. I believe they are of the type designed to lure people away from the real books by those titles.

Examples: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire:

Karen Joy Fowler by Mitch Hedberg:
Karen Joy Fowler
and 28 THOUSAND other distinct works.

220 Hi,

For some reason the book "Need A House? Call Ms. Mouse!" has been renamed "Need a House Call MS" on Goodreads. It wasn't like that previously.

220 Hi librarians -

The tenth Xanth book, Vale of the Vole, for some reason doesn't show up on the series page.

Hi - I don't know if this belongs in Librarians or Feedback, but the new Peter S. Beagle collection has a 2.0 rating even though the only reviews of it are 4 star reviews.

The publishing line says "Published January 19th 2010 by Ecco (first published December 31st 1999)" but it was not published in 1999.

This mistake actually made it ineligible for the Goodreads year's end awards; I only noticed when I tried to write it in and was told I couldn't because it wasn't published this year. It just won the National Book Award so it really should have made the cut for memoir/autobiography. Oh well.

220 Hi -
I just noticed that the listing for J.M. Coetzee's Summertime lists the author as J. Coetzee. Thus the book doesn't show up when you search J.M. Coetzee's work. I think it's about a fictionalized version of the author named J. Coetzee, so I can see where the confusion might occur.
