ISBN-13: 9781848565289 - ISBN-10: 1848565283

When I type in the same ISBN on Amazon, it brings up the correct title. 

 

Supernatural: The Unholy Cause [Mass Market Paperback]

I apologize if the format of the post is messed up. 

I've not had this happen before. Any help is appreciated.

It may be because it is such a new title (released tomorrow).  The database may have originally been set with the incorrect info.  You may want to use the contact us link at the bottom to submit the info.

Hi Melissa,

It was actually released about 2 weeks ago and I'm pretty sure when I added it to my TBR list, the title was correct. I'll try directly contacting PBS though. Thanks.

Some books do get entered with the publisher under the author.  Depending on where the data came from.  And how long ago the data was from.  I'd submit a book edit (Under other options) and include a link to Amazon. 

I would not contact PBS.  This is a matter for the volunteer book edit team.

Thanks Emily. It's not really the author that I'm worried about so much... it's the fact that the title is not right for the ISBN. I have submitted a book edit, so hopefully it will get fixed.

I just don't want someone to think that they've received the wrong book, since the title IS different.
