Danita L (ladygoshawke) | 660 comments 1. The ISBNs shown in this listing do not belong with this edition.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

ISBN 0609806505 (ISBN13: 9780609806500)

2. Both ISBNs belong to the following edition instead, the first PB edition:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Published 1999 by Crown Publishers / Random House

Page #'s shown is also incorrect. The correct # of pages in the Crown Publishers edition is 515 pages.

I own a copy of this paperback and have it here at my desk while typing to make sure that the information is correct.

Also, if you would like a better quality image for 2. , this is the link from my scan.

The ISBN was re-used. And under Goodreads policy (changed a few months back), the ISBN stays with the newest edition. (Actually, the newer cover/edition was added to the database in 2007, so it would have kept the ISBN under the old policy as well.)

Note added and page count changed. Better cover added.


Danita L (ladygoshawke) | 660 comments That is sad :(

Amazon at work again, I'm sure.

Thank you :)

Since Broadway Books is an imprint of Crown, and the newer edition came out in 2000, that seems improbable.

Blame publishers who re-use ISBNs with new covers.
