message 1: by Uninvited (new)

Uninvited | 5 comments This author:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

is actually this author:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

and the only one book listed in the first profile:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

is actually a different edition of this book:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8...
(including some short stories)

That edition should be moved and the second profile should be deleted.

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments Author and title corrected
Please let me know if there are any errors, as I don't know this alphabet.
Editions shouldn't be combined if they have different content.


message 3: by Uninvited (new)

Uninvited | 5 comments No errors. The book title was properly converted to sentence case, from being all caps. Indeed this edition has extra content (one main story, which is the same, plus extra short stories)
So the second author page:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

should be deleted (it's the same name, just in all caps, and with reverse first/last name sequence)

Olivia (livka) | 7927 comments This is an empty profile so we ares usually leaving these for a cleaning script, but I deleted it.
