☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6188 comments If it has an ASIN it is a kindle edition - not ebook.
That's a difference (not only on GR).
Ebooks (digital books sold elsewhere than on Amazon) do have ISBN, Kindle editions (digital books sold on Amazon and with their DRM) do have ASIN.

The edition with the ISBN 9780998686721 was imported that way by a bot so that indicates it was assigned to that book at least for a brief period of time...
And it was imported from Smashwords so it existed as real ebook at that point.

Might be solveable with the new ACE rules but I'm not entirely sure. (and it would feel like really vandalizing valid records so I wouldn't feel confident doing that)
