Jordi Balcells (jordibal) | 12 comments Please merge these two author pages:

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

It looks like the first one has more information about the author, while the second one is the one the author made himself. His name nowadays appears on book covers as Cixin Liu, but in the beginning he was known as Liu Cixin. As I understand it, the custom in China is surname first, given name second, and this is the current choice in the US market. I guess the easiest thing to do is to move everything into the author’s page, i.e. the second one.

This is probably a weird situation, so please let me know if I am not being clear.

Sandra | 26902 comments I'm not sure that we would merge them as he's published under both names.

However, as one profile is a GR author one, librarians cannot do anything about it.

I suggest you post it in the correct thread for staff to look at, and we'll let them decide.
