Empress (the_empress) Fixed first book, combined and created series.

For the second link - added info from Worldcat.

Why do you think the series numbering is wrong?

Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 84 comments In the Series there are two books the first one is not listed on GR yet but I'll do it when I'm finished with my stuff it's called: After the cloud. According to Amazon After the Cloud is the first volume of the first part and Alley of Dry Bones Volume Two of part one, that's what I was reffering to.
Sometimes I want to comnicate to fast and leave too much out :-)

Empress (the_empress) Amazon is not the most correct source of information which is why I am asking. I assumed you might have a more accurate source.

The books you posted in the first post were written in 1992. "After the cloud: Life after the rapture" was published in 2014.

Tt also sass in the description of the book: “After the Cloud” is the continued saga of Boise, Idaho’s Sheriff John Turner (continuation of the 1992 novel, “Valley of the Dry Bones),

Added as book 2: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 84 comments OK good to know and thank you very much. I let then Amazon know they have a mistake in the description. Wouldn't be the first one you are right, didn't thought about it.

Sorry for the confusion and the additional work.

Oh no, don't be silly, No additional work here. It's part of the role. We are are happy to help. As I said I thought you might have a different source that might be more correct. I was also confused by the different title for one of the kindle editions but according to the description it is the same book as this one

We always prefer to use data coming from an author, author's publishing house, a person that has the book and other similar sources.

Agnieszka (agnieszka7) | 84 comments OK, reading the first sentence of GBA it's really very likely that it is the eBook Version of Valley of Dry Bones. In that case these are just two different titles for the same book.
[Back in 1990, when I first started this story as a hardback, entitled “Valley of the Dry Bones”, I foresaw the United States of America in the year 2015. Futher in the text you find: This is the less expensive e-book version of my hard book story, my visions, and my predictions.]

I got it. I love the preview function from Amazon. I checked the first page from both book they are identical ergo its the same book. GBA2015 is the eBook Edition of Valley of the Dry Bones paper edition. grrrr (I hate it when they change titles for new editions)


message 8: by Empress (new)

Empress (the_empress) Often the change in titles is necessary when an author is being republished by a different publishing company (not sure if titles are copyrighted or something similar). But in this case sounds like the author considered it a different book because it is an ebook. I just think it is more confusing.
