So, I hadn't been on the product page for about a week. Last time I was on it was listing something over 36,000 books. It now says there are over 63,000!!

Is this an error, and if not, how did Logos suddenly add almost 30,000 new resources to their catalogue?

They re-introduced showing ebooks (formerly known as Vyrso-books) on Logos.com, minus the fiction categories if I see correct. This helps getting the complete picture of search results (especially if you're looking for titles or a specific author).

I'm seeing a ton of fiction books. It would be really nice if they were automatically excluded!

Could you give me some examples? It will help me look into why our rule missed them.

This is a bookmark I have to check for sales and freebies everyday. It doesn't have a minus-fiction in the string, but I assume it doesn't need it since fiction is supposed to be excluded automatically, correct? Clicking this link will reveal a lot of fiction titles.

Thanks, Myke, that's helpful.

We'll look why some of these titles slipped past our query and see if we can get them pulled down.

It would appear that the new book browsing system broke the server.  

Just getting 500: Internal Server Error message all day yesterday and today so far.

Something is going on, but it may or may not be related to this issue. It works fine for me and a number of others, but others are experiencing what you are. Tongue Tied

i am very good at breaking things. 

does it work for you when you do a “Browse All Books” under the Books and Courses tab?

Yes. We targeted "Fiction" as the primary category for exclusion. However, we neglected "Youth Fiction" "Young Adult Fiction", etc. We're working to adjust that going forward, but there may be a few legacy titles that remain.

I wonder if there's a Romance category that hasn't been filtered out yet (e.g., https://www.logos.com/product/43760/fairy-tale-romance-collection-the-healers-apprentice-the-merchants-daughter-the-fairest-beauty-the-captive-maiden-the-princess-spy, https://www.logos.com/product/21956/the-healers-apprentice). No idea what this might be hiding as. Actually, "novel" is a pretty good search term for finding fiction that has escaped the present filters.
