Linda2 This is The Odd Women by Gissing:

This book, The Odd Woman, was written by Gail Godwin, not Gissing

Arenda | 21770 comments Amazon has George Gissing for The Odd Woman: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1523...

For reprints of older books, it happens regularly that title or author have spelling mistakes, as seems to be the case here.

Linda2 Amazon is also inheriting all the errors we have here. We're reading the Gissing book in our book club, so we'd appreciate a correction. Thanks.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6911 comments I think this book is Gissing's. It appears to be a republish of a public domain book and is mis-titled. I will combine with the Gissing work.

More like the other way around. GR imports titles from Amazon.

I wonder if Amazon had a crew of editors before they bought GR. Now they have 58,000 volunteers.

Gissing: ISBN-13: 978-1582872117
ISBN-10: 1582872112

Godwin book already has its own entry:

lethe | 14135 comments They are already combined. That book has a different ISBN*, so I'm not going to add that cover.

I couldn't find a cover for the ISBN you gave on either Amazon, AbeBooks or The Book Depository.

*Not to mention it's from a different publisher entirely. Oxford World's Classics have very distinctive covers, not used by other publishers.

Amazon still doesn't have us volunteers. We are Goodreads only.
