Beth | 5 comments #0446-34597-0 P.S. Your Cat is Dead by James Kirkwood
There is another book as Ps Your Cat is Dead by Kirkwood Jones with the same ISBN #.
I tried to fix it but it says I can't delete a book that has been viewed so many times. Could someone please explain to me how to fix a situation like this so I know. I haven' been a librarian very long and I'm starting to run into things I'd like to fix but can't. I've read up on things so I'd appreciate the help.
Thank you

1) Edit the non-existent author (not on the book page; on the author page) to be correct. When you save, it will ask which one you want to keep. Keep the correct one.

2) Combine the edition with the correct edition.

3) IF AND ONLY IF it is a true duplicate (which did NOT seem to be the case here), delete the incorrect version. Or if it has too many ratings/reviews, post it to the "please delete" thread, and a superlibrarian will get it for you.

I did #1 & 2.
