mark monday (happy-end-of-the-world) | 6 comments Incorrect synopsis for Void Indigo
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...

Synopsis is for another book, something called Starstruck.

Not really sure what should go in its place. Here's what's on the back cover (admittedly not the best summary of the book but I'm not sure what else to use):

"In a savage era before the dawn of history, four sorcerers committed a heinous crime of torture and murder - and they thought they got away with it. They're about to find out they were wrong."

*cringe*

thanks in advance to any helpful librarian willing to remove the incorrect synopsis for this book!

The ISBN was also for Starstruck. It's now updated and as I can't find other description, I've used the one you provided.


mark monday (happy-end-of-the-world) | 6 comments thank you very much!

Undone. Please never edit an existing book record to make it a different one.

And a new record instead.

mark monday (happy-end-of-the-world) | 6 comments the Goodreads preference is to have an incorrect synopsis attached to a book? it's an odd decision to keep an incorrect book record as is. this particular synopsis is not only incorrect, it specifically lists an incorrect author and illustrator.

We don't replace a valid ISBN. I was a bit unclear about the relationship of the synopsis to the ISBN.

You're right about the synopsis. I undid that reversion. But the ISBN reversion stands.

Yes, it's a valid ISBN, but belonging to another completely different book. Is it okay?

mark monday (happy-end-of-the-world) | 6 comments As far as the ISBN for this edition, it is listed as #0-87135-001-7 on my copy. the rest of the data is correct.

I looked up at Amazon, and both ISBN belong to Starstruck, but if it's printed so on your copy, then it might be the correct one.

Unfortunately, ISBNs sometimes get reused that way. There's a Note from several years ago saying that's the case here.

Yes, you're right. I've now recalled that particular issue.
