Esteban | 78 comments Hi, I found this version of the book in Spanish that has two different editions. It's https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... and they should be moved to https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5... (and merged if they already exist). Thank you!

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

"Traducción no oficial autorizada par Alfaguara"? How is a translation authorized by a publisher not official*? Before combining, I would like to know what is going on here.

*or does it mean "not officially authorized by Alfaguara"?

Andrea (andrea_b) | 561 comments While Alfaguara is the publisher in Spanish of the books, I don't see any communication from them that this translation is "authorized". It just seems to be a fan translation that was published years ago by a blog...

lethe | 14172 comments I combined the Spanish Kindle edition with Midnight Sun, but kept this "non-official" edition separate from the others.

Hmm, I'd rather steer clear: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
