JG (Introverted Reader) | 470 comments Would another librarian with more experience/patience with tracking down book titles like to take a look at The Forked Tongue? A quick google author/title search makes me think it's not correct, but I don't know what it's supposed to be. Thanks!

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments It is a real book, but the author's name is just "Flagg", apparently. (Someone probably got hit by an autocomplete somewhere...!)

Or merged authors not realizing.

Probably not -- there was a "Flagg" in the database already, with an Amazon push of this book (the same one, so I merged them) and an author name fragment that turned out to be Judy Flagg Moran. Some days I wonder!

Doesn't mean anything. I merged the same author three times a couple hours ago, as I did multiple searches that imported more of her books. (Well, I merged more than that. But three times with that version of her name.)
