@Hamlet I'm curious why you deleted your answer to your Seeker question (literature.stackexchange.com/q/2593/481). It seemed okay to me (but I can no longer see it).
...and if you intend to leave it deleted, I'll edit my answer so that it no longer references yours.
 
yesterday, by Hamlet
(Deleted my Harry Potter answer because I think I oversimplified it.)
 
@BESW Thank you.
Hamlet, do you intend to rewrite it, and undelete it? Please do let me know if I need to edit my answer. Thanks :)
 
It is time. I hereby announce that the fourth Supervillain book is out! If you were waiting, come and get it! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071SJ27PC/

@Shokhet I'm planning on getting a copy of Strand's essay and, if I'm still interested in doing so, writing a new answer
Don't worry about removing the link, I don't mind at all
 
Okay.
@Hamlet It's more for me; it makes my answer look funny if it references something that isn't there (and will confuse all <10k equivalent users).

LockjawI would like to identify a comedic book that was recommended​ to me some time ago. I don't remember much, but here is a brief description: The work is either 1 short, or a collection of short stories. The cover had clocks in it (perhaps they were warped in a surreal way). This copy appeared ...

GallifreyanIn The Sandman Presents: Lucifer - The Morningstar Option #3 (written by Mike Carey and drawn by Scott Hampton), Lucifer tells he needed Rachel Begai to channel her desire to destroy the Velleity, as he himself is short on desire: At tat point Lucifer has his hidden agenda, namely getting the ...

I miss @Shokhet's Sandman questions :(
 
@Gallifreyan I think they're a bit busy right now - I know I haven't been able to think of new questions for a while (that would be well-received here)...

[...] It worked only because the audience was ful...

Q: Do we want to tag questions by the titles of books (part 2)?

HamletEarly in the beta, community member Beastly Gerbil started a meta conversation titled Should we be tagging questions with the names of specific books?. So far, we generally have been tagging questions with book titles, but that has caused several problems, and has the potential to cause problems ...

@Mithrandir Did your phone die? :(
 
@Ash worldcat question: why are there two pages for the same book
worldcat.org/oclc/952457016 and worldcat.org/oclc/951964024
 
Ash
@Hamlet Different editions, more than likely
Yeah, the ISBN's are different, so they're different editions. Either different printings, or different formats (hard vs soft cover), or something like that
@Mithrandir oh no :(
 
Yeah, so now I have to replace it. I think my brother has an old one that I can use temporarily, so hopefully I'll be (on) mobile again soon.
 
Ash
Here's hoping :)

@Ash thanks!

@Gallifreyan Lol. Wait till finals are over.
