message 1: by Michael (new)

Michael (mmehl) Tschingis Aitmatow (german name on the book title) and Chingiz Aitmatov (english name, or Chinghiz aka Wikipedia?) are the same.

Is it possible to join both?


message 2: by Parul (new)

Parul | 191 comments Combined!


message 3: by Michael (new)

Michael (mmehl) thanks!

Is there a place to add different spellings of author names?


message 4: by Parul (new)

Parul | 191 comments Effectively each author should have a single profile and unique name. If various data sources use slightly different spellings of an author name, the two author profiles, should be merged together.

If you have doubt regarding the correct author name, you can refer to The Library of Congress


message 5: by vicki_girl (new)

vicki_girl | 2765 comments This is not correct. The primary author (first listed) on all editions should be be the same name. However, alternate spellings and character sets are added as secondary authors.

Parul | 191 comments vicki_girl - I got mistaken by the Librarian manual entry at http://www.goodreads.com/help/show/19-how.... Thanks for sharing the info, I am learning something new each day!


message 7: by Irm (new)

Irm | 21 comments This is the same author: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... and http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... ("hrabia" means "count") - could someone combine it?

I moved the single book from the second to the first profile and combined with other editions of that book.

message 10: by Pamela (new)

Pamela (plvannest) | 6 comments Can you combine the books listed by Doug Swanson and Doug J. Swanson as they are the same. Also, it seems there are two author info pages, one for each variation, too.
Thanks

message 16: by Jaden (new)

Jaden Kelley (goodreadscomjaden) | 1 comments I hope I have the correct forum. There is a book titled Codename: Viper by Jaden. This is my book and I would like to add it to my author page "Jaden Kelley". Also, I have a copy of the cover to this book and would like to have that added as well. Can you help me with this?

You certainly do. I moved the book to your profile, and you should now have the ability to upload a cover image.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Sorry, I'm not sure where to post this. The first book listed below (Kindle 1) has two authors (recently changed by GR), by the other two editions still have only one author listed. Should it be both authors for all editions? I'm not sure.

I'm aware both authors are the same person, but Rivka said the authors shouldn't be combined. Thanks.

Normally the first author on a book is the name on the cover (pen name) and the author's real name is listed second. I've added that to the other two books.

Thanks for fixing that :)


message 21: by Susanna (new)

Susanna Mahoney (SueMahoney) | 5 comments To the sweet librarian that helped with the Angels Cried anthology thank you from the depths of our souls. There is a error this is the correct Stephen L. Wilson,http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%..., and the book should be on his site. I will come back with the other Stephen link so the readers can locate the right Stephen L. Wilson. We would like to thank you, if you can be announced by your name. Respectfully Susanna Catherine Mahoney

Susanna Mahoney (SueMahoney) | 5 comments http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/..., the book is listed on the wrong link of this Stephen L. Wilson http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...

It should go to this link http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/10...,

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17... of Or and 27 books, thank again.

Paula (Paulaan) | 7019 comments This is a user profile NOT an author profile books cannot be assigned to a user profile.

Should he want to claim an author profile then he will need to submit this link to claim his author profile and book

message 24: by Koenraad (new)

Koenraad (koenraadkelemen) | 3494 comments I moved all books to your J.L. profile and combined them.
I also separated Watermarks and Ana Martin.


message 25: by Kerri (new)

Kerri Hawkins (kerrihawkins) | 2 comments Most of the Blood Legacy series is under "Kerri Hawkins" but the last book, "Origin of Species" (ISBN 978-0-9766231-5-1) is under "Kerri A. Hawkins" and therefore is separated out from the rest. Can they be combined as a whole under "Kerri Hawkins?" Thanks!

I've cross-posted this to the thread where a Goodreads staff member will be able to see it more easily, and so fix it.

I agree - awesome and lighting fast - thank you!


message 33: by Ian (new)

Ian Fraser | 10 comments I hope this is the right place. Quite some time back I created a Goodreads profile. I had no clue what I was doing - as shown by the using of two 'r's' at the end of my name.
( http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... )

My current profile that I'm writing with is my new primary author page profile - is there any way the above older profile can be quietly erased? Or do I need to dig out ancient l/p and somehow cancel the account?
Thanks in advance for any help that can be given.


message 34: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 10922 comments Ian, both accounts are listed as GoodReads Author, so librarians cannot do anything. I'll post this in the thread for the staff to handle and they'll fix you right up ;)


message 35: by Ian (new)

Ian Fraser | 10 comments @Sandra thank you. Its a mess entirely made by me. Now I'm properly here to stay, my older account is still floating around, misspelled surname and all.. I'm just trying to clean up the mess I made :)
Thanks for your help.

All fixed, but it will take a day or two for everything to fully settle out. (Counts of books on shelves and such.)

Combined authors


message 46: by Juan (new)

Juan (jjlopezgalindo) | 2 comments Would you check this author, please?

http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

And some books from this author: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

And this one:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

They should be combined with this author, I think.
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

Thanks!


message 47: by Sandra (new)

Sandra | 10922 comments S. Anthony Barnett is a Biologist 1915 - 2003
S. Barnett is a Mathematician

Combined where appropriate.


message 48: by Irissska (new)

Irissska | 19 comments Юрий Геннадьевич Томин (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... Юрий Томин (http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...) is the same author (profiles in Russian). Both names are correct but Юрий Геннадьевич Томин is a full name and Юрий Томин is usually used on the covers of the books.
These two profiles are also of the same author:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - something strange with the name spelling
and
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - author's profile in Polish, I think (not 100% sure about the language, needs to be checked)

Yes, it's in Polish.

Cleaned up 50. Please confirm: this author originally writes/wrote in Russian, and some of his works are translated to Polish? None to English?
