I just added this edition of The Killer Angels, and can't enter the ISBN because another edition already has it. I checked the ISBN I entered, 0345276523, several times, and, sure enough, I got it right. The other edition that has the same ISBN ( was published by a different company, Random House instead of Ballantine the same year but in a different month. What should I do?

Nick | 3 comments Ohhh... So should I just edit the existing entry's publication date? It says Feb. '78 instead of Jan.

That sounds fine.

Nick | 3 comments Great, thanks!

(It's strange - my edition has not only a different month, but no date, while the one that was listed has a day. I went ahead and changed it.)
