A "series" entry could also be added, for the two books in the "Dust" series.

Calamarsa | 459 comments Hi!

This three authors are the same. His correct spelling should be "Patricio de Azcárate". Can you combine them, or correct them? I don't know which option would be the best.

Patricio Azcarate
Patricio De Azcarate
Patricio de Azcárate Corral

Thanks!

Ine | 263 comments I've looked up the books listed under Patricio Azcarate, and the cover for the only book there clearly lists the author as Patricio Azcarate, not Patricio de Azcárate. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...

I'm inclined to leave it that way, but if it is really the same person (the other profile lists translations and one work of philosophy?), we can add a note in the author profile.

EDIT: Looks like they're different people. One is a 19th century author, the other one a 20th century one.

Calamarsa | 459 comments Yes, it is weird, thanks for noticing! I agree with you, better leaving it this way.

Happens the same with:

Plato
Platón

Ine | 263 comments #5: I've added Akiko Morishima as primary author and 森島 明子 as secondary author, because that will leave the author's original name intact (with an eye on finding books if you're not looking for the English translation).

#6: I've tried disambiguating the photographer Platon from the philosophy books, but since both of them only have one name, it's impossible to do. :(

OK then! Thanks for the help and orientation Ine!

Each of those should have Plato first, then (if appropriate) Platón as secondary author. :)

Ine | 263 comments Emy, the photography book is not by Plato the philosopher, it's by Platón the modern Greek photographer. It can't be disambiguated from all the books that have Platón as the secondary author and that all have Plato as the primary author.
