Empress (the_empress) I need some help that includes not only the combining but also the finding of information. I need someone to find which are those books and combine them accordingly, if that is possible.

Thank you:

Koenraad (koenraadkelemen) | 5011 comments Hi Ellie,
I added some info for the first two. (The second one is, according to the French National Library, a translation of an American anthology entitled "The Human operators", but I could not find any trace of a book that goes by that name).

As far as I can see, the other three are just omnibuses of the works of E.R. Burroughs, even though they have somewhat misleading titles, since they all contain books that are not really part of the series they claim to be about (but then again, I'm not claiming to be the greatest connoisseur of Burroughs).
I do not think these omnibuses have their counterparts in any other language, so I would let them uncombined.

Empress (the_empress) Thank you for the help Koenraad. Will post some more French editions when I stumble one them if you don't mind.

Frenchie | 31 comments I will try to help you too Ellie. After all, French should not be too difficult for me LOL LOL...
But not tonight, I am nearly ready to log off...

Frenchie | 31 comments By the way, when we work with foreign books, can we use any source or do we have to stick to some ''official'' ones like Amazon?


message 6: by Empress (new)

Empress (the_empress) There is a list of sources allowed over here: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...
But that is when copying. I use a lot wiki, because often the whole series are described there. Also any author websites and public library resources, i believe, are allowed.

Sandra (goodreadscomsandrarector) | 10 comments Please remove Crazy Little Lies - I have changed the title. Also please remove A Feast of Frights which is not my book. They are both on my author website at: https://www.goodreads.com/search?utf8...

Thank you so much.


message 10: by Empress (new)

Empress (the_empress) I removed the first one. The second one I couldn't find so I assume someone took care of it. It's okay to post new topics for such requests. :)

A Feast of frights is still there. Also Crazy Little Lies is still there. This is on my author page. Don't know what happened.

Empress (the_empress) No they are not. This is the website search. It searches by any of your two names, in author, title and other fields. It doesn't show ONLY your books, also there are authors with similar/identical names.

This is your profile and where you should be looking for the books under your name.
And those are all the novels IN your profile

This is the author for the "Crazy Little Lies".


And the other book is not listing you as an author at all.
It's listing Sandra Crook. [It's coming out in the search because the first name is identical, you/we cannot customize the search to show only your books]

Hope that makes it a bit more clearer.

I moved Crazy Little Lies back, as it IS your book. It should not have been moved. Only books that were not written by you are properly moved off your profile.


message 14: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (goodreadscomsandrarector) | 10 comments The title Crazy Little Lies was changed to Crazy Little Liar. Anyway, just want you to know how much I appreciate your getting back to me and explaining what happened.

With which it is correctly combined, and the newer edition is already primary.
