N (NH-NL) | 66 comments Hi, please could you combine these two books:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...?
One of the above has a full biography of the author.

These two blank copies of the book need deleting:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...-
coming

Also, the author has two separare profile pages:

Jimmy Lerner
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Jimmy A. Lerner
https://www.goodreads.com/author/
show/410409.Jimmy_Lerner

Ren | 688 comments #3 combined all editions. GR policy is to list the author on the cover, so since some books have Jimmy Lerner and some have Jimmy A. Lerner on the cover, both author pages will stay. I have added Jimmy A. Lerner as secondary author to the other editions so they could be combined.

Also, those "blank" copies have valid ISBNs and so they won't be deleted.

Actually, when they are very similar, one name is wholly contained within the other, and there's no reason to think the author is deliberately maintaining multiple pen-names, it's ok to combine into the more inclusive one. Jimmy A. Lerner, in this case.
