I am pretty sure this is the same person, but some of her books have her name spelled Manya and others as Manja. Is there a way we can make it so that all her books can be found together under either spelling? Then some of the books can be combined, too.

Thank you!

Since there are covers with both, no.

I did add a link on each to the other. For books published under both, determine which was the first name it was published under and link here. They can have that name added to all editions as the primary author, to allow combining.

Kristina Marie | 45 comments I am pretty sure Rain is the only one listed under both that should be with the Manya spelling.

It actually looks like that one may only have been published under Manya (and the data showing Manja on a couple editions is incorrect). Fixed and combined.

'Izzat Radzi (izzatradzi10) | 19 comments Dear Librarians,

This link below is of the same author, but was written differently.
How does one correct/combine it?

Preferably combine/turn to : Mohd Syazreen Abdullah, as in the 2nd link
where 1st name is Mohd Syazreen and last/family name is Abdullah

Name One

Name Two

The second one was only listed as an editor, on a single-author book. Removed, and the blank profile should get zapped by the cleanup script.

Also, it's usually much better to start a new thread than to bump one from several years before.
