Okay, will copy the dust jacket and send it to you later this afternoon.  Carrie

although since I have an  Optacon, it's probably faster and simpler just to 
check anything that comes up  as I read along.
  
 However, would you happen to have the dust jacket for this  book? If so, would 
it be possible for you to run it through the scanner and beam  the info over? I 
can include the synopsis from the paperback edition in the Long  Synopsis 
field, but I don't feel that it would be right to include it in the  book 
itself, since it isn't actually a part of the edition you scanned. But I do  
like to put that info in the book whenever I possibly can. I always include it  
in any books I scan, and in any books I validate whenever possible, since I  
generally try to get a copy of the edition that was scanned. Obviously, it's 
not  essential, but I would sure be grateful if you could do it.
  
 Thanks very much.
  
 Evan

The book is still in    the Bookshare office, so another option is to email me 
and ask about the    scannos.  I can always take a look at the book and let you 
   know.

Just a suggestion, Carrie

the number of page breaks to the page      numbers near the end of the book, I 
am sure that all of the page breaks are      in place. So I am just going to 
pick up the paperback copy that my library      has available, in the event I 
come across a scannoe I can't figure out from      context.
      
     Thanks for sending this up! It's one of my favorite books.      A real 
classic.

I checked all over the book and couldn't find any ISBN        anywhere.  It's a 
book club edition. Do they not include ISBNs for        some reason? I don't 
understand it.

Sorry I couldn't help!         Carrie

     Carrie, do you have an ISBN for A Fire Upon the Deep?          I can't 
seem to find one in the book, and I want to try to get the same          
edition for checking if I can.
          
         Thanks much.
