Robin (ukamerican) | 106 comments Would it be possible for someone add this book cover: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_2CP1qn18sk4...

To it's book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/85...

Amazon doesn't have the image up yet but the author has released the cover on her official blog: http://royalaffairs.blogspot.com/2010...

Or do we have to wait until it's added to Amazon?

Michael | 262 comments This book has the wrong cover: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/57...

I can't find the correct image on the interweb - does anybody care to admit to having a copy that they scan and upload? ;-)


message 5: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Michael, this is what comes up for that ISBN on Librarything:
http://www.librarything.com/work/5010...

Is that the correct cover?


message 6: by Michael (new)

Michael | 262 comments I don't think that this will be the correct cover as the Octopus edition was published in 1979 and the Librarything cover looks much older than that.

It could just be that it's missing a dust jacket.


message 10: by Michael (new)

Michael | 262 comments Hey, Lobstergirl: That could be so, but I have a few horror short story collections by Octopus from the late 70s and the covers are all plain, whereas the cover at Librarything appears to be embossed. I know that this is not firm evidence, but the LThing cover just doesn't feel right to me.

As the "Nursing" cover presently linked to "Romance" is clearly wrong, it might be better to leave it until a definitely correct image is located. That said, if you are confident the LThing cover is right, I won't object if you upload it :-)


message 11: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl No, I have no idea if the Librarything cover is correct. I thought maybe you had a copy in your hand and could verify what the correct cover is.


message 12: by Michael (new)

Michael | 262 comments No, romance stories are not my thing ;-) I just noticed that the cover for Romance was showing a Nursing stories cover, so was not correct.
