Irissska | 26 comments this profile (1 - http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...) is a duplicate of this one (2 - http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...). Number 1 should be deleted as it is the same author just the person who added the book misspelled author's name. It seems that person just transliterated both the author's name and the book title (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/66... - От Ариев до Викингов, или Кто открыл Америку (The Farfarers: Before the Norse)) from Russian.
I have no idea what is better to do with the book itself, may be add it as a different edition to http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/74...? The isbn and isbn 13 are correct there is such a book published in 2004 (http://books.google.kz/books/about/Ot...).
Thank you in advance.

Irissska | 26 comments Hi.
Could you assist in this as well:
#1: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - correct profile.
#2: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - same author
#3: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - same author
# 2&3 - misspelled surname (staut instead of stout)
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13... is another edition of http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/77....
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/41... is another edition of http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/77....
Thank you.

Irissska | 26 comments Please combine these two profiles:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...
It is the same author, name in Russian and transliterated from Russian.
Wiki link: http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%90%D...
Thx.


message 6: by Irissska (new)

Irissska | 26 comments One more, please:
1. http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - correct
2. http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - misspelled
I couldn't find author's bio, but Amazon states her name is Franziska.
http://www.amazon.com/Franziska-Wulf/...
The book in the wrong profile is ok (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31...).
Thank you.

Emy (emypt) | 5029 comments RE #5 - has he published in English as well (or any other language using a Roman script)?

http://www.buchfreund.de/covers/14205... for a cover for #6 for reference since couldn't see any on her books. Not sure if it's a valid source so not going to upload it!


message 8: by Irissska (new)

Irissska | 26 comments 1. RE #5 - has he published in English as well (or any other language using a Roman script)?
I don't think so, I think he published only in Russian. I cannot be 100% sure, but Russian Wiki doesn't mention his publishing in other languages and when I type in google his name in Roman script it gives links to his name in Cyrillic. The only his book in Goodreads with its title in Roman script is http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10.... It is in fact Russian title written in Roman script - Ассирийские танки у врат Мемфиса (I hope you will not be confused by my long explanation, sometimes I am really confusing :).
2. I am not quite sure what you mean here (sorry, English is my second language). I read this book (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31...) in Russian and it was written by Franziska Wulf. Anyway I don't think there is even such a name - Franzsika.

Emy (emypt) | 5029 comments Cheers Irisska, I'll fix Ахманов now.

Second bit was for anyone else not at you, sorry - should have made that clearer!

Irissska | 26 comments And it’s me again. I am very annoying today.

1. http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - author’s profile with his name in Russian (I think this one should be used)
2. http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... - author profile with his name transliterated. Alen is a name, Leks is a surname.
The author writes in Russian. Here is his official web-site: http://alen-leks.ru/

The books listed in both profiles are in the series “Пророчество Сиринити”.

Пророчество Сиринити # 1
1. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...
And
2. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13... are the same book and the same edition. I have checked Russian books selling websites, they give the same publisher info (Альфа-книга, 2008) as for #1 and the same isbn (978-5-9922-0119-2) as for #2. I guess, that means the books are one book, doesn’t it? I think # 2 should be deleted, its isbn (978-5-9922-0119-2) to be added to #1.
Reference (sorry, in Russian): http://www.livelib.ru/book/1000309361; http://www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/... ; http://www.labirint.ru/books/168457/

Пророчество Сиринити # 2
1. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...
And
2. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...
The same as above.
# 1 is better to use.
# 2 - an inadequate translation of the title into English, better to delete this book and add its isbn 978-5-9922-0135-2 to #1.

Пророчество Сиринити # 3
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...
Change title to “Третий глаз дракона” as the title translation into English is not correct. The books were not published in English so there is no necessity to have an English title.

Thank you.

Irissska | 26 comments Request to combine author's profiles
A lot of Internet sources state that Алекс Гарридо, the author of the "Акамие" series and Аше Гарридо are one and the same person.
1. Алекс Гарридо - http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/... (his first name shortened to the first letter in this profile)
2. Аше Гарридо - http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...
On-line book shop "Лабиринт" states it is one person and shows the books of both authors (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30..., http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30..., http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17...--) together: http://www.labirint.ru/authors/98677/ (Ru)
Other sources that state these are one person (also in Ru): http://lib.rus.ec/a/3728, http://fantlab.ru/autor3810, http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A4%D..., etc.
Here is also an interview with her where she explains that her first pen name was Alex and then she changed it to Ashe: http://anothernames.tumblr.com/post/7... (Ru).
So that means both names are correct but it will be good to connect/combine the profiles in order to see all her books together and to avoid duplicating books in two profiles.
Thx.

Vicky (librovert) | 2459 comments I don't think anything needs to be combined, but I added links to each profile in the about the author sections.

Kynan | 3 comments Looks like there are two Arthur C. Clarkes, one with the "." after the "C" and one without. The latter being the incorrect one:
Good: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...
Bad: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

message 18: by Melanie (new)

Melanie | 4 comments I hope this is the right thread for this. My children's book, An Amazing Alphabetic Anthology, is listed twice, once linked to my profile here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16... ...and once linked to the page of another author with the same name, here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16...

When people add the book and leave ratings and reviews it is showing up on the listing tied to the wrong author, but not on mine. I hope this is an easy fix. Thanks!

Done. OK, you are "Melanie^^^Rose" with 3 spaces. The other lady has 2 spaces.
