I have looked for the book on Amazon but the correct cover is not included in the entry for this edition. Not sure if you can use it or not, but the cover should look like the one in this link:
https://www.booktopia.com.au/the-wiza...

Thank you in advance.

Alex | 2739 comments The site you have provided does not seem like a source we can use for covers or book data (see here ).

If you would like to provide a photograph/scan you took of your copy's cover, you can upload it here: https://www.goodreads.com/photo/new

Just let us know when you are ready so we can proceed.


message 3: by Stefie (new)

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments Thanks again Alex.

The Book Depository site should meet the requirements in the Librarian Manual for the book data. But I understand the site I provided for the cover doesn't.

I have uploaded a picture of my book here:

message 4: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2739 comments No problem Stefie! You are correct about booktopia and bookdepository, so thank you for the cover, it has now been uploaded.

The correct spelling of the author's name is the one in the second link: Will Schaefer

I own the book but here is a source just in case:

Please and thank you.


message 7: by Stefie (new)

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments So I wasn't sure which forum to post this in... I figured this was the best one.

Please correct me if I'm mistaken but I think the below two links are the exact same book as pretty much all the details are the same:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...

Further, I believe the above book is an alternate cover edition of the below book as the ISBN10/ISBN is almost the same (in the above book a number has been left off the ISBN10):
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

I own a copy of the alternate cover edition and all the details match.

Also a source:
https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Book...

Please note that the publish date that is already in the ACE is correct. The date referred to in the source is a reprint date.

Elvenn | 2624 comments #6 Done!

#7 The two links above are both different alternate cover editions of ISBN 9781857230277 as Orbit seems to have been using the same ISBN for the last 30 years with many different reprints and covers that sometimes only have a small detail different, a word written in white above the author, a blurb added below.

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

So I was looking for my edition of this book but the ISBN does not exist in the Goodreads database. As a rule of thumb I normally check other editions to see if there's one that matches my edition but that may have missing information before I try to add mine or request mine to be added.

Referring to the above link, should the ISBN13 be 978-0733624193 (which is the ISBN of my copy) instead of 645-0733624193?

Considering that 978 is above 654 in the same order on the keyboard, it seems like a typo. But I'm no expert on ISBNs so if its incorrect then could it please be corrected otherwise please let me know for future reference.

Please and thank you.


message 18: by Alex (new)

Alex | 2739 comments #16 Please include ISBN for page count requests, even when linking to the book. Also, Bookdepository is not considered a very reliable source for page counts.
Worldcat, which matches Goodread's page count policy much more closely, puts this book at 220 pages.
Could I please trouble you to check what's after pg 220?

#17 Nice catch, that is definitely not a valid ISBN13 (which always start 978 or 979). Corrected and added cover from amazon.


message 19: by Stefie (new)

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments Thanks Alex.

ISBN: 9780521634977

Looking at my copy of the book, I see what you mean about Bookdepository. There's nothing after page 220. The extra four pages are at the beginning of the book (title, copyright and contents pages). Sorry for that. Will use Worldcat for page references in the future :)


message 20: by Alex (new)

The adapter is the author. The original author is basically a contributor.

Abridged works are combined with the original author's works, but adaptations are not.

its hard to wrap your head around sometimes, but think of Bambi.
Felix Salten is the author. Disney authored the Disney version, and dozens of children's authors and illustrators make their own version/adaptation. Salten is very rarely even mentioned.

Bambi is my go-to explanation for this. Hope it helps.

Stefie (stefanieazar) | 94 comments Okay yeah that makes sense.

Зникнення

Description: Елізабет Гаскелл (1810—1865) — англійська письменниця ХІХ століття, автор кількох соціальних романів, а також різноманітних за тематикою повістей, оповідань, нарисів, у яких органічно поєднуються риси романтизму і реалізму. До цієї збірки увійшли вибрані твори Е. Гаскелл, написані у жанрі готичної прози. Автор майстерно передає характерну для готичної традиції атмосферу жаху й таємничості, водночас легко і без педантизму вплітаючи в оповідь вікторіанські моральні настанови і демонструючи витончене почуття гумору.

Author: Elizabeth Gaskell
Translator: Ігор Андрущенко
