Mathieu | 93 comments The above author doesn't exist. http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

His true name is Dáire Keogh (with an accent on the "a," since he has an Irish name) whose page is here: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

And this is why this page: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14... is wrong and should be deleted since the true book is here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26...

Hope this helps.

Renske | 10991 comments I combined the two auhtor profiles and added the accent.

There is no reason to delete that book, it is a different edition with its own ISBN.

Mathieu | 93 comments Thanks.

For 1798, it seems really odd... Is there a catalog where one can check the existence of books based on their ISBN?

Google is a good starting point.
