What's the Story?

After purchasing and totally enjoying the "Greatest Mysteries of All Time" Volumes 1 through 5, I bought "More of the Greatest Stories of All Time". I was expecting additional stories. To my surprise, it was exactly the same as Volume 2. The titles of the stories were not listed and the readers were listed in a different order than the second volume. Why was it not mentioned that the volume was previously released? This is annoyingly suspicious and deceitful. Is this why hardly any of the anthologies presented do not list a table of contents or even a list of titles. This leads to purchasing books with the same stories. Many times it is required to read all of the reviews in order to hopefully find someone who has previously purchased the book and listed or mentioned the titles of stories within an anthology. I really do not know why story titles are not listed and books are released with different titles. I hate to think that it is because of some marketing scheme whose only purpose is to deceive the customer. Experience has taught me that in a world where transparency and "truth of advertising" no longer exists, deceiving customers has become a tradition and has even been elevated to a admirable creative process. Please, prove me wrong. List a Table of Contents with your anthologies.

to few

all the stories were good, unfortunately there were to few for my liking. I would have liked to hear more of these high quality stories, all masterfully written.
