Over 6 million ISBNs and ISBN barcodes are listed. The ISBN format was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISBNs are 10 or 13 digit numbers that uniquely identify a book by its title, publisher, and format. ISBN bar codes are just a bar code display of the ISBN number. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and were originally 10 digit numbers. In 2007, ISBN numbers changed to 13 digit numbers so the system wouldn't run out of ISBN numbers to assign. The ISBN number is typically found on the back cover of the book along with the ISBN barcode that represents that number. The ISBN number can also typically be found on one of the first few pages of the book where the publisher and copyright information is listed.
Each edition of a book and each format of a book has a different ISBN number. This is very useful when searching for the softcover edition or the hardcover edition of a book. It is also useful for college students searching for the correct edition of a college textbook for their university class.

One cold February morning the mangled body of a homeless derelict turned up in one of Houston's wooded and desolate suburbs. The body was deteriorated and torn apart by animals. Animals disturbing bodies was not unusual, however, forensics showed clear and very convincing evidence that one or more animals may have been involved in the killing itself. Perplexed Houston police asked the Health Department's Animal Control Director, Dr. Duncan MacDonell, to assist.Footprints of the suspect animal showed it to be a large canine, much bigger than any domestic dog. Representatives from Texas Parks and Wildlife speculated that it might have been a very large Mexican red wolf. Within a week a second body showed up, then a third. It wasn't long before MacDonell began to suspect the killer might be human, and it might be someone he knew.
