A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

Here's the best one I've found to date.


If you try to shelve this book on goodreads:  ISBN 0843951915



It also thinks that other editions of this second book are the same and shelves it too: ISBN 0843951907.  You can even see on the Nightworlds cover that it even says says:  "Author of Dark Universe."




Guess why?  Both books incorrectly have the same ISBN on Amazon!  I own both books and can see they are not the same and not the same ISBN nor are the contents the same.  The Amazon download merged both books!  I know this was not the case when I originally shelved these on gr.  But guess what?  Amazon doesn't care that they are wrong in gr because both are out of print and only available on the second hand market.
