The Book Description of this book is not in English. Can this be fixed please? Here's a link to the same book on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Forgers-Bradfo...

Thanks.

It's the same book. Publishers are the same. Mysterious Press does show as publisher to the book page I listed on other editions.

Looks like perhaps several non-English editions are listed but are designated as being in English or some English versions have the description in another language.

A Librarian will be able to sort it out :D

That link doesn't take you to the same book on Amazon. There is no ASIN or ISBN so it can't take you to the exact edition. It takes you to a book with that title/author.

On the book in msg1 https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... There is a librarian note (actually GR employee note): "The ASIN B00JLQ4O42 for this book has been temporarily moved to this edition. Please do not revert this change until after 11/12/2017. Thank you."

The language could prob be changed tho. The language = english but desc is not. As said in msg3 there are other editions with mismatched languages if anyone wants to hunt.

That's pretty much what "same book" means :D Same book, different listings.

Thanks Corinne. I do not see the note, but I'll take your word for it. Cannot fathom a reason for it though, it's clearly the same book.

Regardless, I found a book listed as English with a description that is not in English and so I've requested that be corrected.
