Asetian Bible in hardcover?

Post by Jonathan on 19.01.12 2:56

An easy search online for bookshops selling the Asetian Bible quickly shows that the book can be found in literally thousands of online and retail stores worldwide, in every single country imaginable.
Although this may seem fascinating to most of us around here that saw it start as a small mysterious book that no one knew about and turn into an occult bestseller that is now a reference to many, what really caught my attention was this store in Belgium that has listed a hardcover edition of the AB. It seems far more expensive than the regular AB, even more expensive than Kemet. Does anyone know if this is simply an error in the listing database or if we are dealing with some rare hardcover edition we never had access to?

Real or fake?

There is no picture of the book itself, so I am inclined to say that it is fake. However, someone may have decided to individually process the book into hardcover, which is entirely possible. You'll notice that it thinks the book was released in August of last year. The publisher is listed as a Primary English Import. It's likely that whoever input the book into their system simply wasn't paying much attention. The only curious thing to me is that it lists a specific weight.

I believe this is fake. As AK prove us during time, the details are important and any detail is shared in the main website. So, this make me thing that this info is fake.. The price is a little expansive too. Perhaps an email to inform the site of the error is a good choice, or even alert AK about this situation.

Days ago i find too a weird description about Asetian Bible. See with your eyes: http://books.google.pt/books?id=5jLmNQAACAAJ&hl=pt-PT&source=gbs_navlinks_s Asetian Bible is getting famous by the cover, is very beautiful and creative, many readers are admitting this. Since we are talking about sites here i find an interesting feedback: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/179958692

Sadly some of the content feels like it is copied/adapted from The Psychic Vampire Codex. I heard on the grapevine that Michelle Belanger was able to get the Asetian Bible removed from Amazon for plagiarism.

Simple data entry error, nothing more. Happens all the time!

Stalker, remember, all are free to state their opinions and not all will agree. Every book ever printed will receive good and bad reviews. Did the reviewer bring up valid points in his review? For himself, for some, they are valid points as our minds work differently. The only opinion regarding any book that matters, at the end of the day, is your own. Smile

I agree with all you said, naugusta. But this was not an attack, but a detail of how things continue to be seen. I think there is much evidence here about vampirism, so i shared. Keep in mind that share does not mean to criticize.

Stalker, I did not take that as you were attacking them, no no. Sorry if my response came across that way.

I would always expect "things" to be seen as favorable by some and not favorable by others though. (The same applies to everything, really.) I would say concern yourself (anyone) not with such "things" as they matter not. I used to pay attention to those things/details, but in retrospect, such things are absolutely of no importance. All that really matters is solely keeping focused on growth. Smile

Yeah I'm going with fake as well on this one. Likely a mistake during the data entry process. What still makes me unsure is that like Daniel mentioned there is a higher value entered for weight, making it seem like this book is actually heavier than the normal AB like a hardcover book would be. Maybe just a weird coincidence.

Stalker the cover is really beautiful. As for the old argument of plagiarism don't waste your thoughts on it. It's the power of rumor and she used it nicely, but you know if someone is quick to pass such claims as truth without questioning it first then maybe they aren't interested in the truth to being with. So it doesn't matter.

An explanation may be that it is an average or default weight for a hardcover book of that many pages.
