K. Gorman (k_gorman) | 2 comments Sorry if this is the wrong forum to put this in, and thanks in advance for you time.

I have a story in the "Twelve Worlds" anthology and, in one of the editions, my name is spelled wrong. It is spelled as "K. Gormon" instead of "K. Gorman". (this edition here:

Secondly, I'm having trouble claiming the book under my author status. I understand that's because of the spelling; however, I cannot claim the other edition either. (It's spelt correctly here:

I'm wondering if it's because I'm not the main author (Derek J. Canyon did all the publishing) or whether there is another reason. I notice that other authors have managed to claim it.

Thank you so much for your time. I'm sure these are fairly silly questions. It may take me a few days to reply here, as I'm currently in China and the government has blocked Goodreads. Sometimes my methods of reaching past the Great Firewall are bogged down by a billion others trying the same thing.

I've fixed the mispelled one and combined the editions.

Your author profile has you as "K. Gorman" with two spaces for some reason. A super librarian will need to merge that with the single spaced name that is currently linked to the Twelve Worlds.
