Vigdis | 25 comments Hi!

Could someone correct the number of pages and year of publication of these editions?

Markens Grøde:
304 pages
Published in 2009 (this edition)
http://www.gyldendal.no/Skjoennlitter...

Sult:
208 pages
http://www.gyldendal.no/Skjoennlitter...

Mysterier:
368 pages
Published in 2009 (this edition)
http://www.gyldendal.no/Skjoennlitter...

Pan:
144 pages
Published in 2009 (this edition)
http://www.gyldendal.no/Skjoennlitter...


Markens Grøde has another problem: the ISBN that is given for that edition does not exist. This is the right ISBN: 9788205394841 (from the publisher's website). Gyldendal has never published anything with that ISBN (edit: the one given on the GR page for that edition) and google only gives four GR pages as results when I search for "ISBN 0082052774" Someone must have mistyped it.

I just contacted the same publisher regarding an ISBN for Fuglane by Tarjei Vesaas, and I gathered from their reply that there's no reason not to trust their website. Also, Norway is a tiny country with very few people, so we don't publish many editions of each book. The ISBN could have belonged to another book, or maybe another (old) edition of Markens Grøde, but it could not belong to an edition with that cover. Also, since that ISBN doesn't show up anywhere on the internet except from GR, I think it's safe to assume that someone mistyped it.

Empress (the_empress) I think Markens Grøde might need merging, looking into it. I checked it with ISBN converted and it gave bad isbn result. A safe place to check is http://www.worldcat.org/

Edit: Posted for merging

IS that edition the same book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Empress (the_empress) A question, do you see the covers under "other editions (89)" for this book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I'm trying to determine if it is my browser of a bug:

That one's called "Markens Grøde, the second part", so it's half the same book.

Yes, I see the covers, no problem here. But when I go here the cover for this edition is missing from the "other editions" section. Can only see a white box with a question mark.

EDIT: It's happening to other books too.

I think there are currently some picture related bugs: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
