What I make of that is three different authors lumped together.
First you have the environment/activism/politics books, which you can match to the author over at https://www.keele.ac.uk/spire/staff/d...
Then you have Going To Dolpo, which you can find at http://www.timothydoyle.net/ as apparently the only "publication" by that author (site also lists a short story called The Sea, available directly there).
And now you have Faces in the Mist: A Jacob Turner Chronicle by Timothy C. Doyle. That initial taken from https://www.facebook.com/authordoyle/... and also the GR page linked to from there, https://www.goodreads.com/TCDoyle which redirects to https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... that has no books listed.

Judging from the changelog, the author has inadvertently removed the book from his profile by removing the disambiguation space in his name. I have flagged it for staff to look at, because he apparently has a giveaway going on and it's best not to edit books then.

Leaving the others for someone else.

Robert Negut (cavalary) | 56 comments Needing to rely on a space to separate authors instead of linking ID numbers is a messy solution that begs for such problems to begin with.
*ahem* Maybe something for the new(ish) powers that be to have the devs sort out instead of changing fonts and front page design...
