mlady_rebecca | 593 comments This author needs disambiguation.

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

The first two books belong to the most popular author. Looks like the Cuba books are a second author. The programming books a third. Might be more. Not sure.

Thanks!

Althea Ann | 1 comments Here's another needing disambiguation -
https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...

I'm pretty sure there are around 5 different authors under this profile.

One is a science fiction author, one writes women's fiction, Another deals with non-fiction women's issues, another specializes in politics and economics. I think the children's books are another distinct individual, as well.

Abcdarian | 19968 comments Sorted out five that I could be sure of, mostly from Amazon's author pages. The rest I would be just guessing, so best left until someone knows for sure. The unfortunate part is that there were quite a few followers on the original profile.

The majority of them (13 in my count) appear to be for the 3 spaces Rebecca Campbell, so the books could be moved to another profile temporary and the followers merged. I'm not sure if it's a good idea though considering 2 of the remaining 6 have shelved the books of the 4 spaces one (2 have no books by Rebecca Campbell and the other 2 are private profiles).

Edit: changed the numbers as I missed one follower previously.

Ayshe | 3055 comments Maybe we can merge them and message the uncertain 6: "due to disambiguation changes you are now following author you may not have wanted to"? :)

Just done that.

Filipa (fiwipa) | 32 comments Hello!
This seemed like the most appropriate post for this. I couldn't find one just for Disambiaguation purposes, maybe one needs to be created specificly for this, just like the one for mergings (now going to part 15). Sorry if I missed it.

Author page https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... - needs disambiguation as the first book Diagnosis and Management of Bone Infections has to be from someone else: not only it's about a completely different subject but its written only in English, Luis Jauregui is a Mexican historian, usually writing in Spanish.
Also the cover of Bone infections tome shows author name as Luis R. Jauregui, maybe he's already on the GR database under that name.

Thank you!

This thread is fine, but starting a new thread is always ok.

Moved the Diagnosis book to Luis E. Jauregui (Amazon had a larger cover; Worldcat also has Luis E. Jauregui): https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
