"What isn't a spam work?
Any work that actually exists as a book in the real world. The member who added the book may be committing spam by adding the work, or by other data attached to it (eg., reviews), but the work itself is not spam. Consider what would happen if a non-offending user were to add the same work."
Just because something has a title that makes it look like spam doesn't mean that it isn't an actual book.

Yet a quick search on amazon shows all five of these to be real and available to buy (albeit only as ebooks).
Is it just that people aren't bothering to check this? Or am I the one who is somehow in the wrong?
I must say, though, that I rarely look at the spam works voting page*. Maybe I should do so more often.
*Probably because it's not easy to find (I just tried) and I don't have it bookmarked
Because it's a Kindle edition and they don't have covers!
Oh, I know. Well, they sort-of do. I'm just speculating why people thought it wasn't.
