    @MartijnPieters That only works for accessing an actual item, which is the only thing that would have an ASIN or ISBN number. The above is a link to a promotion page (or basically a search result page). The parser is stripping the number out and putting it into a URL that it doesn't belong in. – animuson May 4 '15 at 17:30
  • @animuson: ah! That's the problem here. I missed that the link was to a search, not an item. – Martijn Pieters May 4 '15 at 17:32
  • @animuson I think I've encountered at least 5 broken Amazon links this year. Here is another example: mathoverflow.net/questions/761/undergraduate-level-math-books/… – Lenar Hoyt Jun 23 '15 at 21:11
