message 1: by Lily (new)

Lily I think that the Scorpio Races is more of the mythology part of this list. It deals with the myth of water horses which comes up in a lot of different cultures. I would recommend it in a heartbeat.


message 2: by Abi (new)

Abi Walton which is the one that is the retelling of Judas?


message 3: by Djeemetry (new)

Djeemetry Phebe Hello I am new here does anybody else here love science fiction, fantasy, biographies , thrillers or learning books. It would make me really happy to talk to someone here.


message 4: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra Why are the Harry Potters here? They're not really retellings of anything, except a bit of christianity in the last book.


message 5: by Kathy (new)

Kathy I've noticed two books that are listed twice (could be more) and should be merged:
American Gods (Gaiman)
Geekerella (Poston)

Should be solved now, as I let the system perform a duplicate check (and 9 duplicates were found).

I noticed you're a librarian too, so access to the duplicate check shouldn't be a problem and you could have performed it yourself... (?)

I'm a librarian too and can't seem to spot how to do a duplicate check - seems like a useful tool, how'd you do it?


message 8: by Booklovinglady (last edited Feb 27, 2020 11:46AM) (new)

Booklovinglady @Cassandra & Kathy

At the end of the description you see '(edit)'. Click on it. Then at the bottom of the next page you have two options: 'check for duplicates' and 'remove particular books'.

The duplicate check will remove all 'doubles' from the list while the votes cast are kept with the remaining book (the duplicate check can, of course, only remove books which are combined correctly). There are also, unfortunately, instances known where the duplicate check gives a 'page unavailable' notice.

Good luck! (Don't use the duplicate check where covers are concerned though)


message 9: by Kathy (new)

Kathy Good to know! I simply figured the creator of the list had the only administrative rights on the list.

Thanks for fixing and explaining.


message 10: by Booklovinglady (last edited Feb 28, 2020 12:06AM) (new)

Booklovinglady @Kathy
You're welcome :-)
A creator can, to my knowledge, not remove books or check for duplicates (unless the creator is a librarian, of course)
