Jen (reader44ever) | 183 comments Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right folder for this issue, but I couldn't figure out where to put it...

I need help with Christopher Heath. There appear to be two of them, as the types of works listed under the two of them vary widely.

One of the Christopher Heath profiles is here:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

The other can be found here:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

I suspect that one of them is the author of the non-fiction works, while the other is responsible for the fiction works, especially as I found the below website that lists many (perhaps all) of the fiction works and none of the others. But I don't know which of the above Christopher Heath profiles should be the fiction one, and which should be the non-fiction one. :-(

I hope someone will be able to help me figure this out. Once the two are sorted, I suspect that editions will need to be combined, as it looks like some of the books are listed for the first C. Heath and then again on the second C. Heath. I'm so confused!

Thank you in advance!

It is. I'm sure one of the librarians who specialize in disambiguation will be along shortly.

Katrina | 73 comments Okay, now we have:
Christopher^Heath - fantasy etc http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

Christopher^^Heath - IP law http://www.goodreads.com/author/list/...

Christopher^^^Heath - old medical text book http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

Does that look okay now?

Jen (reader44ever) | 183 comments Hi Katrina, thank you so much! I think this is most excellent! It never occurred to me that there were likely three different Christopher Heaths, though I'd like to think it would have eventually had I known that the works just needed to be separated.

I hope you don't mind but I added Librarian's Notes to the two with extra spaces to signify that their names have extra spaces. :-)

Thank you again! I really appreciate your help!!

Jen (reader44ever) | 183 comments Should I delete this topic now that it's been resolved?

You can't. You could delete your posts, but that's just confusing.

Jen (reader44ever) | 183 comments Okay, thanks, Rivka. I'll leave it as is then. Perhaps it will be useful for someone else in the future.
