Koffer | 6 comments Greetings,

I am confused about this edition, because according to the copy of the book I have at home, ISBN 9781405910309 matches this edition, which is named "Prophet of Bones" and not "The Bone Prophet". The cover also does not match.

Unless it is perfectly normal to have two different names and covers for a given ISBN, I think this edition currently has incorrect information.

Thank you in advance for your help!

It is not perfectly normal, but it happens quite regularly that a publisher uses the same isbn for a different cover, and sometimes even a different title.

An isbn can only be on one edition on GR. For editions that share the isbn with a different cover, we create an alternate cover edition.

Added here for isbn13 9781405910309, with cover from Amazon: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

That is possible, but very difficult to prove.
