Lisa (anzlitlovers) | 90 comments Brave New World seems to be in a mess.
There are editions of 'Brave New World' on their own.
There are editions of 'Brave New World Revisited' on their own.
And then there's a great swag of editions of 'Brave New World/Brave New World Revisited'.
Should they all be combined? I haven't seen the Revisited version, so I don't know if it's a different book analysing BNW or BNW with some sort of commentary or analysis as an introduction.

Traveling Diva (travelingdiva) | 372 comments Brave New World and Brave New World Revisited are not the same works. The latter is a non-fiction essay written 30 years after the book, about the book.

So some of them should be separated?

Traveling Diva (travelingdiva) | 372 comments Do you have an example of what is confusing you?

I took a quick look and see some Spanish versions of Revisted combined with BNW, which I am separating out now, but otherwise nothing immediately jumped out at me as wrong.

Well, when you go to Combine Editions, there seems to be only 2 editions of BNW and dozens of BNW Revisited, which seems odd to me.

Traveling Diva (travelingdiva) | 372 comments OK, that is weird. I see 271 editions of Brave New World, 35 BNW revisited, and 21 editions of combination BNW / BNWR

These numbers may change slightly as I am doing some cleanup at the moment :-)

Yes, that is weird. Because if I go to BNW and click on other editions I get 270, but if I go via Combine Editions, I get just the 2.

Sure, here it is http://www.goodreads.com/book/combine..., same as yours. I can do a screen dump of what I see, but I don't know how to send it to you.
(And I must go to bed soon, it's nearly 1:00 AM here in Australia!)
