International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Window (short Story)
"WINDOW" is a science fiction story by Bob Leman , published in 1980 and reprinted numerous times. It was nominated for the Nebula Award for best short story. The influential science fiction publisher Donald A. Wollheim included the short story in The 1981 Annual World\'s Best SF . PLOTThe prose is straightforward and to-the-point. The plot of the story involves the discovery of a three-dimensional window on a Victorian-style house and family. The window is created in a minor military research experiment that goes awry. The research involves studying the idea of channeling psychic powers through mnemonic words and phrases—in essence, spell casting. To everyone's surprise, the research works, creating what the researchers and military men at first believe to be a window into the past. The three-dimensional window cannot be penetrated. However, every fifteen hours or so, the barrier between the two worlds becomes permeable for exactly five seconds

The Last Dangerous Visions
THE LAST DANGEROUS VISIONS is a mooted sequel to the science fiction short story anthologies Dangerous Visions and Again, Dangerous Visions , originally published in 1967 and 1972 respectively. Like the first two, it was scheduled to be edited by Harlan Ellison . The projected third collection was started but, controversially, is yet to be finished. It has become something of a legend in science fiction as the genre's most famous unpublished book. It was originally announced for publication in 1973, but other work demanded Ellison's attention, and the anthology has not seen print to date. He has come under criticism for his treatment of some writers who submitted their stories to him, who some estimate to number nearly 150. Many of these writers have since died. Various difficulties delayed publication many times. As recently as May 2007, Ellison said he still wants to get the book out
