Jon (jonmoss) | 202 comments I received a paperback edition of A Deepness in the Sky which has ISBN 0812536355 on the back and copyright pages. The correct cover here (at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/59...) has no ISBN. Is it possible to add the ISBN for that edition? Or what do you do in this case?

Also, no page information is associated with this edition. This paperback is 774 pages long.

Thanks,

Jon

jenjn79 | 565 comments There's no ISBN on the entry because it looks like an edition with a different cover used the same ISBN. So someone created a blank ISBN entry and added the alternate cover so users can have the correct cover on their bookshelves. Until GR creates a feature where more than one cover can be uploaded per edition, this is the alternative.

I corrected the page number, and added a Librarian's Note regarding the ISBN issue.
