I noticed you've started adding some books (Agency & Bone Silence) with publication dates in 2020, but the published by year lists reverts to 2019 when entering 2020.

BTW, why is 2222 an option in the drop down year listing?

The short answer: Jan 1st, 2020 as things stand right now.

The longer answer: There are a couple things happening here. The Books Published by Year page was intended to show this year's books and all prior years. Any future books are not published yet so would not show on the list. But the code is picking up all publication years from the DB when it should ignore next year's books which is why you see 2020 in the drop down list. Which makes things confusing. The one book that had an erroneous pub date of 2022 has been updated to 2020.

Adendum to the longer answer: It would be a nice feature to allow future pub books to show in the list so you can preview what's coming down the pipe. We will update the code so allow 2020 books to show. Might take a few days but it's on the to do list.

Thanks for letting us know of the problem. Cheers!
