Goodreads does not delete out-of-print books or editions. Please see http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/22... and http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/32...

Please also note Goodreads policy on books published under more than one pen-name: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/4...
In some cases, a book may be originally published under a pen name, but then later reissued under the author's original name. When this happens, the author listed for any and all editions should be the author name the book was originally published under - so the reissued edition would need its primary author name changed to the originally published pen name, with the additional name added as secondary for all editions with it on the cover. Doing this will allow the various editions to be combined.


Edits contrary to Goodreads policy have been reverted.

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6177 comments merged the empty duplicate and added the notes for alternate cover editions.

As the author, you have the ability to change which edition of the book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here are the instructions: How to Change Edition
