Riikka (rakuna) | 61 comments I was just adding my edition of Men Without Women by Ernest Hemingway (ISBN 0099909308), when I ran into the weirdest phenomenon I've seen here thus far. This edition has an odd green and purple cover that is added to GR if you look from the book edit page or from the all editions page (or basically anywhere where only a thumbnail is shown), BUT when you are at this editions actual page there is picture of the cover of a later edition by the same publisher(ISBN 9780099909309).

Does anyone else see this or is it a problem just my computer is having? (Wouldn't be the first time...)

Here are the covers I'm talking about:
Men Without Women (Arrow Classic) by Ernest Hemingway The right cover.
Men Without Women by Ernest Hemingway The cover of the newer edition.

Kayla | 0 comments Hmm. For the books, they both look the exact same to me.

That happens sometimes with cover images from Amazon. Unfortunately, fixing it almost always switches it to the new image for all three sizes -- it did this time.

Elly (ellyj) | 29 comments I refreshed the book data, and the cover image changed to the green and purple one, so I hope it is now ok.

Amazon changed which image they are hosting between yesterday and today. Weird.
