Peter (pete_c) | 388 comments I contacted Lawrence Block about his book Speaking Of Wrath, and received a reply stating that it was "cancelled and never published."

Since this book was imported from ingram and also appears in ISBNdb (where the title was verified), I don't think deleting is the answer. (It would just be re-imported, right?)

As an interim approach, I have already clearly marked it as Cancelled and Never Published (see Speaking Of Wrath), so that users will not try to add it nor believe it is available.

Is this the correct way to handle this? Or would NABbing have been better?

I have not seen any policy about this issue. Do we need a thread to develop one?

That's what we usually do. Otherwise users will go looking for it and create new editions.

Thanks.

How about a note in the Librarians Manual? (or did I miss it?

Amara Tanith (aftanith) It's sort of addressed by:

These items are books:
* repacks
* F&C Sheets
* bound sheet music, scores, librettos, etc.
* atlases
* reference books (including books on CD-ROM)
* book group discussion guides
* workbooks
* calendars or something-a-day books with additional content
* "blank" books with additional text or collectible artwork
* advanced reader copies (ARCs)
* boxed sets (sold as a boxed set with one ISBN)
* multiple distinct volumes (sold together as a set with one ISBN)
* fanfiction which is self-published in book format
* forthcoming books with only partial information
* books withdrawn from publishing if enough information was ever provided to make a book record a useful resource
* periodicals and bound comic books with ISBNs
* periodicals without ISBNs but substantially similar to books (eg, perfectbound literary magazines)
* single-issue magazines and comic books on an individual and unencouraged basis, although they should be typed as "periodical" in the work: media type field
* short stories published online (the format should be "ebook")
* audio productions, not recordings of theatrical productions (the format should be "audiobook")
* podcasts of books

Peter (pete_c) | 388 comments Right, but it doesn't say what to do with them.
