For editions to be merged with something other than the work default, please remember to separate out the two editions for merging before posting in this thread.

NOTE: This thread is for requesting the deletion of true duplicates -- two entries for the same edition of a book. If you need help with anything else (e.g.: moving books off an author's page where they have appeared in error, author disambiguation, combining editions, etc.) please start a NEW THREAD in this folder.

Tabatha Stirling | 39 comments Hello, Please could you delete Blood On The Banana Leaf because it is now being traditionally published but under Tabatha Stirling. So I will have to create a new book under my author page of that name. Thank you so much.

Cassandra (cassanj) | 4919 comments This https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... is marked as an ACE for the default https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8..., but the only difference I see in the covers is that the ACE has got "copyrighted material" printed on the cover. Is that enough of a difference to leave as an ACE, or can they be merged?

12 - I don't see enough difference to consider it as ACE. It should be merged imo but I'll wait for a 2nd opinion from another super :)

Arenda | 22047 comments #12/18 It is a different cover. In the ACE, his hair is almost touching the author's name, in the original there is much more space between.

There are only paperback & kindle editions of the others in this series; looks like this empty ebook edition may have been added by mistake.

A search on google by author and title gives a Kobo edition (not that we can use that info from Kobo directly), so when there is an acceptable source, the ebook edition can be updated.

There was a cover change for main edition couple of days ago, which I reverted. Turns out the older image was the generic "no image" which was replaced with the actual cover once the book was published on 5th July.

Looks like the cover reveal was done a couple of months ago and the ACE was created by a regular GR user (didn't find "librarian" under the name) with the cover when the main edition still had "no image". ACE's librarian note on 4/27 mentions that it's an alternate-cover edition for the book published on 7/5/16.

Since the covers are identical, I merged the duplicate and re-combined with other editions.

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments #32 Reverted the cover changes done against policy. Both the covers now look almost identical except the colour of author name. ACE or merge? :)

#33 Looks like all the editions have unique ISBN/ASIN?

Thanks Michael, but they are all the same book. How can this be fixed?

The first link won't let me change the asin to an isbn number because it says it is being used on the 2nd link. But it is the same book same release date, same edition.

Hello Kevin, ebooks sold on Amazon get an ASIN with the format listed as Amazon Kindle. Your ISBN belongs to hardcover edition and since the format is different, Goodreads considers them as different editions of the same book. So you now have 3 English editions - paperback, hardcover and kindle. That works, yeah? :)

If you want to list the hardcover edition as default (that comes up on your author page, user searches for your book, etc), follow these steps

Cassandra (cassanj) | 4919 comments Merge with default https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

The link in the record leads to the press release for the forthcoming publication of this book, the stray to be merged is listed with the working title at that time.

Please leave requests in this thread for superlibrarians. Those editions were separated on purpose to merge one edition.
