Amber Lea (amber_lea84) | 4 comments So I'm trying to sort out the hot mess that is The Death of Ivan Ilych by Tolstoy.

So there this: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

This doesn't seem to be a legit edition? I can't find that ASIN anywhere. When I google it the only result is that page.

Then there are other editions that seem like they should be combined:

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

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

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

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

It looks like this is where all other editions are combined: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

It seems like there are some editions that shouldn't be here because they're compilations that have this one story included.

I have no idea how to combine or separate editions or if they should be combined or separated.

The edition with the ASIN no longer available: it was imported from Amazon, so available at that moment. GR does not delete books that are no longer available. Especially for books in the public domain, this is not unusual.

Someone has combined the editions you linked to.

Story collections should not be combined with editions that only contain a single story. If you know any that are incorrectly combined, please provide the links.

Amber Lea (amber_lea84) | 4 comments Yeah, it looks like someone already came along and fixed all these issues. Thanks for checking!
