Plch | 75 comments Today I was reorganizing the Barbarella serie by Jean-Claud Forest and I made a mistake, combining books from differnt series with similar names (time-breakers vs minute-eater). I tried to correct my mistake but shortly thereafter all the edition of the wrath of the Minute-Eater (Barbarella #2) disappeared from the database (page not available). I'm sorry to have caused such a mess, I hope it can be repaired.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments It's there, but seems to be marked as book 1+2 --?? https://www.goodreads.com/series/1263...

I'm not fixing it, as I have no clue about these books, but here are the editions: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editio... If they are not all the same book, you'd need to use the separate tool to pick out the ones that don't belong.

Plch | 75 comments those volumes really are book 1 (Barbarella, 1964) + book 2 ( the wrath of the minute-eater, 1973) of the series, but book 2 alone also existed (different editions) and now all of them say invalid page and they have also disappeared from the author profile, I can see them just from the page of my librarian edits: https://www.goodreads.com/librarian/u...

Abcdarian | 19392 comments Ah. Yes, unexpected error is all I get. Perhaps someone higher up may have a suggestion.

That sort of error with a recently-added or -edited book record usually self-corrects within 24 hours.

Thank you, let's hope it will be ok.
