Vitaly | 5 comments Hi.

As I see there's no possibility to find all authors with duplicate names. It seems that your API returns only the first found match. For example, I took an author "John Allison" on the page with duplicate author names:
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

And your API returned me only one result for the request:
https://www.goodreads.com/api/author_...

Could please add functionality for returning all authors with duplicate names?

Thanks in advance.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) you want to try our search endpoint:
http://www.goodreads.com/api/index#se...


will return a list of books, but the relevant authors will be diverse.
