Cathy (cathepsut) | 142 comments I just came across this odd bookpage for an unknown book by an unknown author:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

I just did a search and there is quite a few bookpages like that.... is there a reason for that? Should they be deleted?

Emily | 13538 comments That particular one is not a book and I will delete it. I removed it from the series it was in.
Sometimes people make records in the system that are placeholders for something else, but they don't fill in the correct info (or they don't know it offhand). Also, sometimes information is imported by the system that has incorrect info.

If you look at the author page, there are valid works by Unknown. Most of them are in the public domain. https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
