This is what happens when you run an international business as a hobby....  you end up with "cheap" titles in your catalouge

Cash flow problems? Fix with L7 instead.

Maybe that's a test run for including secular books in Vyrso, which was discussed I think last year.

Interestingly, that's the only title included from Cosmo Books. I reckon the logic which titles to filter out is inverse by error.

(I'm tempted to buy this just to receive an apology later on. :)

Giving FL the benefit of the doubt, I suspect this was an oversight in their Vyrso book filtering system. 

If Dracula was removed from Noet by popular demand, I'm doubtful this was an intentional addition! Smile

IIRC the process of creating a Vyrso book is almost entirely automatic--probably a wrong book got pushed from a wronger publisher or something. I'd certainly give them the benefit of several doubts on this one.

This needs to be IMMEDIATELY removed!

Maybe the Song of Solomon once made it into the canon through a similar incident... ;)

Doc, I'm curious, which search term did you use to come across this title? :)

Thanks. I've passed this along and we'll work on getting it pulled.

Such that the book was "on sale," DOC probably was likely just looking through the sale items.

We'll look into how that happened.

My guess...

We're working with the major secular publishers to offer whatever books we want from their catalog at https://ebooks.noet.com/ (A few publishers are there already, and others should follow.)

This will allow us to offer the titles that our customers have asked for, as well as to offer a broader range of books for use in the Christian colleges and seminaries that are standardizing on Logos as an ebook platform. (Many courses at Christian schools require books that aren't specifically from a Christian publisher.)

This is based on the same technology stack as Vyrso, and while we intend to keep the catalogs separate, something must have leaked through here.

The good news is that while the automated publishing feeds (that go to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and all the digital booksellers) will send us publishers' entire catalogs, we will filter out inappropriate content. Because of the volume, this will start by category, and occasionally something may slip through that doesn't have accurate metadata, but we'll try to be responsive and as careful as possible.

Clearly we messed up in this case, though -- we're sorry about that and will address both this title and the underlying cause ASAP.

That's good news. If your prices are right, that will reduce my Kindle spending.

Bob, I would be interested in having these results show up in the main Logos website, by checking a box (off by default) when searching for a title or a subject.

I was just looking at all books sorted by lowest to high price and filtered for locked books only to display.

Thanks Bob for replying, I have no doubt this was a process error on some level and know you would never intend to include this in your active list of titles.

This is a good thing.  This is something that you talked about doing with the LDLS in the Libronix days so it is good to see this finally getting off the ground.
