Jose Brox (josebrox) | 3 comments Hi!

The book "La séptima víctima" is actually the spanish version of the book "Untouched by human hands" and as such they should be merged. Can someone please take this task up? (I am a newbie and I think I am not allowed to combine books).

* The first book mentioned is:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...
* The second one is:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

By the way, there seem to be two other english editions in need of being merged too (please, make a search of "untouched by human hands").

Thank you and regards!

Jose Brox (josebrox) | 3 comments Thanks! Which is the difference between combination and merging? Should I read a tutorial somewhere?

Only librarians really need to know this. :-)
