Was the ebook edition published in any format other than Amazon Kindle? :)

Balso | 21 comments could somebody please delete the old edition of Crypt(o)spasm by Gary J. Shipley, or else merge the two in favour of the 2016 edition? Thank you. Balso

Sandra | 26559 comments Balso, the 2 editions of Crypt(o)spasm have been combined by someone, but it may take a little while to show up due to caching.

Only the author can change the default edition so that the new cover automatically shows first, or the amount of shelvings will change the default.

Balso | 21 comments ah, ok. thanks, Sandra

Balso | 21 comments actually, when I try to switch to the new edition it says 'oops - you already have that edition on your shelf', and doesn't switch.

Krazykiwi | 1767 comments You are trying to switch which edition you have on your shelves, which only affects your user account.

What you need is this, the instructions in message 4:
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

This will set the default edition for people who search for your book by name, or via your author profile. It won't change which edition is on anyone's shelves (including yours.)

Susan Stumpf | 2 comments There is a stray edition of Antecedent. I merged it with the good copy but could not find where I can "delete this book option" at the bottom of the edit book page as per the help suggestions. Can you please delete the stray version?

Reverted the format change for the Kindle edition.
One edition is a paperback, the other a Kindle edition. Both are valid editions, no deleting needed.

I've added the cover from Amazon to the paperback edition.
