Cyn (cynscorner) | 6 comments Trying to get this title to show up for this author:

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

But it seems to have created a different "author" for him when I added his new book ("On the Hitlist"), and I can't figure out how to make it work.

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1764 comments Fixed. The correct Timothy Dalton has two spaces between his first and last name (GR uses extra spaces to distinguish between authors with the same name).

Cyn (cynscorner) | 6 comments For real? He's got two spaces? lol I never even noticed. I created the Author page for him last year, so am I able to delete the extra space? Or is that something he'd need to do?

Thanks for your help, ladies!

No, you don't want to delete the second space. It's how Goodreads keeps authors with the same name from getting mashed together. You can't see the two spaces except in edit mode.
