For editions to be merged with something other than the work default, please remember to separate out the two editions for merging before posting in this thread. [Non-librarians: Please just note in your requests that you are unable to complete this step.]

NOTE: This thread is for requesting the deletion of true duplicates -- two entries for the same edition of a book. If you need help with anything else (e.g.: moving books off an author's page where they have appeared in error, author disambiguation, combining editions, etc.) please start a NEW THREAD in this folder.

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...

Christopher Ruz | 7 comments Please delete these two books:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
They have been sold to a new publisher (Parvus Press) and completely rewritten. Parvus have previously contacted a GR admin with a request to scrub the old books and been told that the author (myself) has to make the request.

Christopher Ruz | 7 comments Hi Rivka,

Thank you for the fast reply. As we can't delete the old edition, could you please advice or direct me to where I can find advice on how to add a new edition of a book without linking to or referencing the old edition or sharing/transferring reviews in any way?

Thank you!

Goodreads policy is for revised editions of a work to be combined with the originals.

However, as the author, you will have the ability to change which edition of each book is the default, which will come up in searches by title and show on your author profile. Here's how: https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3...


message 28: by Christopher Ruz (new)

Christopher Ruz | 7 comments Hi Rivka,

I understand that merging reviews is the normal policy, but the revisions in this new edition are massive to the extent that old reviews on the new edition would be considered misleading and grossly unrepresentative of the new book. My publishers have said that unless we can completely separate the editions or have the old edition removed, we will have to retitle both the individual books and the overall series. Is there anything that can be done?

I appreciate your assistance!

Chris

#32 these magazines have Kindle editions:
1) merged to Kindle edition
2) ASIN added
3) couldn't find on Amazon Issue 35, there is Issue 34 and 37 though, so I think it was published as Kindle, I just can't find it.
Edit: @32.3 here is an e-book version that we can't use as source of data, but it's a prove it's been published with ISBN https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-...

David Keuning | 2 comments Several books need to be deleted from my profile. I'm the author of "All the World We Never See". The other books are from other authors. (We have the same name.) Thank you!


message 48: by Olivia (new)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments David,
the correct thread for your request would be This book is not mine, please move it, but it won't be done in your case anyway, as there are to many books to move.
You were assigned the default profile in error and you'll need to contact support to be moved to the new profile.
