Hanna | 34 comments ASIN B078HX9ZL3 doesn't appear to be a real ASIN and there is already a kindle edition in this title set. Can this be removed?

First of all, it's perfectly valid: https://www.amazon.com/Lost-Founder-P... (and even available here: https://www.amazon.fr/Lost-Founder-Pa...)

Secondly, even if it were no longer listed on any Amazon site with that ASIN, we don't delete out-of-print Kindle editions any more than we delete out-of-print paperback editions.

Hanna | 34 comments However, if you click on the actual "kindle" format in both of the links you provide, the ASIN changes to B074DGYVD5. We only ever published one ebook edition of this title, in the US at least (I work for the publisher), so I'm not sure where this ASIN came from.

Hanna, it is available for purchase from Amazon.uk with that ASIN- https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lost-Founder....

Not for the one on Amazon.fr, actually. Presumably that ASIN belongs to the European edition.

Regardless, it is not uncommon for the Kindle edition of a book to have more than one valid ASIN, for a variety of reasons. And Goodreads policy is to keep all valid editions, even ones that are no longer available.
