Read the authors description:

Simon R. Green is a New York Times bestselling author whose works include Drinking Midnight Wine, Beyond the Blue Moon, Blue Moon Rising, The Adventures of Hawk & Fisher, and the Deathstalker series. A resident of Bradford-on-Avon in England, he is currently working on the next Deathstalker novel.

currently working on the next Deathstalker novel.


Is this a mistake (meaning the new Blue Moon novel) or a pleasant surprise?

Its a mistake, sorry.

It looks as if they've taken a cut and pates from an old title and stuck it on there.

I did email them weeks back about this, but they've done nothing to sort it out!

no, I understood you. Still can't believe that a huge site like Amazon can do this.

I recognize the text form something? But I can't just recall what.

The monster that is Amazon moves very slowly, I'm sure they'll correct it at some point.

If I can't post anything useful I like to amuse !

I've flagged the error again with Amazon and have had an email from them saying thank you, we've changed the info... only they haven't!

I try to avoid Amazon nowadays. Cutting out the middle man works quite well for a lot of things.
