Thanks Dave.

Looks to me like that's confirmation that the book doesn't have its own
copyright.  As for the ISBN, I think it's probably correct because the
copyright page looked like it scanned well.  I see no reason not to trust
what's there.  Seems like there ought to be a place where you could verify
ISBNs though since some agency or organization has to assign one to the

As for using the pages from the earlier publishing, I don't see why I
couldn't do exactly what you suggested.  That's what I had in mind when I
wrote Cindy.  Thanks for the opinion.

BTW, the club review came straight from the book jacket, so you definitely
found the correct book.

Thanks again for the help.

Hi Gerald,

I don't know if this is much help, but here is what it says about the book
at the Science Fiction Book Club web site.

by Tamora Pierce

800 pages

Publisher: Random House Children's Bk.
Publication Date: August, 2002


Ten long years have come and gone since the Kingdom of Tortall proclaimed
that girls could take on a page?s training. At long last, one young girl
has come
forward: Keladry of Mindelan.

Kel and her family spent several years in the Yamani Islands, where she
received warrior training in the arts of self-control and weaponry. Her
seems clear, but the training master, Lord Wyldon of Cavall, fears that
women are too weak to serve. Since her parents are highly regarded by the
Lord Wyldon gives in, but on one condition: Kel must serve a one-year

Kel is furious, but she feels compelled to accept. She longs to become a
knight like her heroine, Alanna the Lioness, the King?s Champion. Drawing
on her
Yamani training, Kel braces herself against the hazing of her classmates,
who believe that no girl is good enough to serve side by side with a boy.

But this girl is determined to succeed. Kel refuses to let anyone or
anything?including fearsome Immortal monsters such as the Spidren, Tauros
or Hurroks?prey
on the weak or the small.

And this determination will stand her in good stead, as she readies herself
for a future that includes an evil sorcerer who is the greatest monster of

I don't know how this squares with the copyright page info you sent which

>First SFBC Science Fiction Printing: November 2004.

I would be tempted to say that since the author is the copyright holder, I
would go with the 2002 date, as printings and editions don't always impact
a copyright.
I also wouldn't worry too much about the ISBN if it is causing problems, as
it is an optional field anyhow.  If the submitter however, filled out the
ISBN field, it shouldn't be a problem as the system accepted it already.
I would also say, if the submitter doesn't get back to you, go for the
replacement pages, as long as you number them accordingly, even if they are
from a single volume edition.
