Violetta | 479 comments I am seeing your name as the author, and the book does link to your author page when I click, so either someone already took care of this, or I'm not quite understanding what's happening...

I did make one edit - I found a cover for the paperback edition on Amazon and added it for you. As for the "old" edition, it is part of Goodreads policy to never delete previously published works. As the author you have the ability to choose which edition shows up as the default, so you can pick the newer work to show up, but the older edition will stay on Goodreads too.

The ISBN on the "old" edition corresponds to an ebook published by Smashwords. As Violetta explained we do not delete published books, since many users want to add the exact edition they own or have read to their shelves. I created a Kindle edition and combined it with the Smashwords edition and with the paperback edition. You can see the different editions here:

You can set the edition of you choice as default by following the instructions here:

David Fuller (davidjfuller) | 9 comments Hi there -- just wondering whether a book I contributed to can be added to my author page. The book is Kneeling in the Silver Light: Stories From the Great War. Link is here:
My story in it is "The Wolves of Vimy." Not sure whether the info on GR is being fed from Amazon, but it doesn't seem to list the contributors to this anthology.
If you could help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated!
