Z-squared | 8580 comments Yeah, you're not the first person to have this happen. I'm guessing some bizarre database import bug. Anyway, it's fixed now, and just for kicks, I added the cover, too.

Our imports can only bring in the data the import source provides. Seems like one (for whatever reason) one of them has Zondervan as the author for several author's books.

Fortunately, we have librarians to fix them.

I randomly fixed three, and noticed they all had Create Space in common and were published in September/October.

Keeping in mind that some books may legitimately be credited to them for lack of a single known author. Probably not all 400+, though.

Pisceschick | 34 comments Oh, certainly. I'm just checking books that look "off" in the list, such as the vampire story I am fixing right now. Zondervan Bibles doesn't do vampire stories.

There's Joseph Conrad and Nathaniel Hawthorne stories in there, too. Crazy!

Yeah, those definitely sound off.
