I've changed the author on #3 and #4 and combined them.

Sigrun (ranugis) | 26 comments Perhaps someone could look into this, please. As I was entering the book 1812 THE WAR FOR CANADA: A War with a Year Named After It, I saw that the last three books listed had the same title SEARCHING FOR THE FORGOTTEN WAR - 1812 CANADA, with the same year of publication, etc., though only the first listed has a description. Therefore, for now, at least, I've copied it to the two other books. The two books shown with the cover list two authors, the other without a cover image has only one of these. Both authors are listed for the two books listed for the U.S. versions of the war: SEARCHING FOR THE FORGOTTEN WAR - 1812 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I found it under the first author's name.

Ovidiu Neatu | 68 comments I have question: when I add a new edition to a book I hit "add a new edition" and fill in the details of the book. But after everything is finished it appears like they are different books and I have to come here and post another "combine edition" issue.

So my question is: do I do something wrong? Or the "add a new edition" feature doesn't work?

Nope, you're doing nothing wrong. And, technically, the link does work. It never did combine newly added editions. It's a bit misleading that way.

Irissska | 26 comments Hi.
Could you please have a look at this:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...
When you go to this author's page, it show that he has three distinct works but two of three listed here are the same book
1. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30...
2. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...
I think # 2 should be added as a different edition to # 1 and shouldn't be considered as a seperate "distinct work".
Thank you.

Emy (emypt) | 5029 comments #10 Combined :) Will also check the other editions later as looks to be some 'interesting' transliterations going on...

In the future, please provide links to make things easier. Your explanation was rather confusing, but I think I got them combined correctly. There are three entries - the Canada volume, the US volume, and the third I believe is the 2-volume set.
