and this author page: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

seem to have a lot of overlap. One of them says there's more than one Keith Houghton. I found only these two pages, but who knows if there's more? You don't provide links to other authors with the same name. (Maybe you should?)

It seems to me that it might be worth revisiting this author name to try to sort out which one wrote which book.

Linking two unrelated authors would be very strange.

On the edit page of non-Goodreads authors is a link to similar author names (visible to librarians). Only two Keith Houghtons are listed.

Leaving the disentangling for someone else.
