New thread.

Reminder: Please only list authors in this topic who need to be merged by a GR staff member. That is, when one of the profiles has been claimed by the GR-member author.

Do not list authors for disambiguation, authors who are deceased, or authors needing merging where neither profile has been claimed.

Posts that do not belong in this thread may be deleted.

Also note: Blank profiles (no books, fans, quotes, etc.) will not be merged. They will be left for the cleanup script.

Please only post the links, and -- if necessary -- additional information we need to understand the reason for the request. Examples of additional information that is useful and fine to include: a link to the author's official website showing all the books in question (especially if they have a common name); note that the books all have [name] on the covers; explanation of why they should be combined even though they are two distinct genres, etc.

Please do not editorialize, comment on other users' behavior, etc. If your request doesn't make sense without such comments, please use the contact link instead of posting in this thread.

Posts that contain such editorializing will be deleted. If you are not sure whether your additional information falls under this criteria, please use the contact link instead of posting in this thread.

This thread is for merging duplicate author pages when one has been claimed. Neither of those is a claimed profile. Please start another thread.

☕ Lachgas ♿  (lachgas) | 6187 comments incorrect initials https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
(name was changed from fuller version to initials, I added the full name to the book that needed it so the initial one can stay as secondary)
