Based on lots of feedback (in this group, in the Feedback Group, via email, and elsewhere) we have restricted the ability of imports to change existing cover images. Imports will now only be able to change an existing image up to a few days after the edition's release date. This should preserve the ability of imports to replace placeholder images, but prevent the overriding of valid, published covers with a newer cover (contrary to policy).

The existing logic that prevents an import from overriding user-added covers is unchanged.

I found a paperback copy on GR, but not a kindle edition like you linked to on Amazon.

Were you asking for a cover to be added to the paperback, or the Kindle Edition to be added to GR.

I meant the paperback version but, apparently, mixed it up with Kindle. Anyway, it's been taken care of. Thanks for your effort.
