Mark Lawrence (marklawrence) | 93 comments A reader reported that that Amazon UK link on my book Red Sister is broken.

It would be great if someone could fix it.

Renske | 10805 comments That is not an issue we can solve. The data are correct and it is correctly linking to both Amazon US and worldcat, so it seems the problem is with Amazon UK, which is something we can't do anything about.

A different ISBN for the hardcover is being sold at Amazon UK.

Red Sister

So the fact that the link to the Amazon UK listing for the book goes nowhere...

...and the fact that there is a valid link for the Amazon UK listing for the book

i.e. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Red-Sister-B...

is not something that you can work with to create a link that works?

No, the links search by ISBN, when there is one, not by title. If the edition is not available at a site, then it won't be found. Librarians only fix book issues at Goodreads.

Renske | 10805 comments Those links search for the data of the specific edition, so if that specific edition is not on that website it get no result. Those links are not manually created and we can't edit them.
