Elizabeth (elizabethsbooks) | 8 comments I'm not quite sure of a solution to this problem or what topic to ask it in.

The book is supposed to be 'Haunted Kids: True Ghost Stories'. I don't know how the book 'From Here to Maternity: Outrageous But True Stories of Pregnancy' got on this record.

Amara Tanith (aftanith) Every source I can find says that ISBN 9780836221893 is correct as From Here to Maternity: Outrageous But True Stories of Pregnancy.

Elizabeth (elizabethsbooks) | 8 comments I pulled my copy off the shelf and the Haunted kids ISBN is 0816732663. How do we get the Haunted Kids editions off of "From Here To Maternity" 's record to this correct one?

Amara Tanith (aftanith) I've already separated From Here to Maternity (no idea why it was combined in the first place), and I've just now combined ISBN 0816732663 with the other editions of Haunted Kids. :)

Beth (bethjustbeth) | 1586 comments It's most likely a reused ISBN. According to WorldCat, the ISBN has been used for From Here to Maternity: Outrageous But True Stories of Pregnancy, whether it is, currently, or not.

You will need to create a new edition, similar to an Alternate Cover Edition, with the ISBN field left blank.

Elizabeth (elizabethsbooks) | 8 comments Ah, thank you kindly. The book probably was separated from it's other editions the same time 'Bruce M. Nash' was taken off the front cover of the rest of the book's later editions. No clue on why Nash was removed on the later ones.

Er, no, I don't think so. The edition she linked to in #1 is not the same as the edition she linked in #3 (ISBN 0816732663, which she actually has). Unless I'm missing something, it's just a case of mistaken combining.
