Lisa Arbitrary - AttentionIsArbitrary M/M Blog (lisaarbitrary) | 15 comments Hello, I've been asked to help remove a series of plaigerized works by author Taz Graham. I'm assuming this is a generated author name as the books have been plaigerized. The true author has contacted both Amazon and Smashwords who have researched and removed the books and author from their sites.

I have attempted to remove all of the related books but have gotten the "only super-librarians can delete books..." notice, even though there are no reviews or ratings. I do belive I successfully removed one of the books in the series, however.

Can the "author" be removed from GR also?

If you require any further information I am available. Thanks for your help.

Please report these to support (at) goodreads (dot) com or use the Contact link (or better yet, let the plagiarized author report these).

Lisa Arbitrary - AttentionIsArbitrary M/M Blog (lisaarbitrary) | 15 comments I will pass that along, thanks.

It's curious that there is a delete books link on the book edit page though. *eeks :)

We are of course authorized to merge duplicates and such.

For legal issues, you will need to use the Contact Us link on the Help page. Librarians can help with issues pertaining to specific book records or most related issues, but have no control over general site functionality or related issues. Closing thread.
