vicki_girl | 2766 comments This book has "Anon" listed as the author on the cover. However, I beleive this should be either "Anonymous" or maybe even "Unknown" (based on the current author profile for Anonymous).

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Actually, Google suggests that the author should be Charles Peters (Nat'l Library of Australia, among others) -- although, hmm: not this one! You may need to disambig.

(If there weren't a named author available, I would call this "Anonymous", since the author is given that way in this publication. Are you checking the rest of the "Anon" books?)

vicki_girl | 2766 comments Thanks Cait. I didn't think to check worldcat by title, just ISBN. The title pulls up several editions by Charles Peters.

There are several other items like this from the same publisher under the name "Anon". I will change them to Anonymous, unless I can find another author.

I agree that not-otherwise-attributed "Anon"s should be merged with "Anonymous".
