A.E. Chandler (aechandler) | 10 comments Hi. I just found the book Britons and Anglo-Saxons Lincolnshire AD400-650 through the author's website and came here to shelve it as to read. Goodreads has the book authored by Thomas Green, when the author is actually Dr. Caitlin Green. Here is the link to her website:

Amazon has the book listed under the wrong author, so I can see how this would have happened but, looking at the past publishing history of both Thomas and Caitlin, and Dr. Caitlin Green's website, she is definitely the author.

A.E. Chandler (aechandler) | 10 comments Yes, I saw that on Amazon. Thomas Green is an old pen name, and the cover as shown on Dr. Caitlin Green's websites is different.

If you visit the second link, you can see that Dr. Caitlin Green acknowledges writing her books (see also Concepts of Arthur: A Detailed New Study of the Early Arthurian Legend) "under a former nom de plume": Thomas Green. She specializes in early medieval Lincolnshire and is the author of the book. Since she was using a pen name when the book was originally published in 2012, it's easy to see where the confusion came in. (The Thomas Green cited on Goodreads is obviously not the author, though, since he writes non-academic books about the southern United States.)

Arenda | 22205 comments Since the book was originally published under Thomas Green, that name has to stay. I've added Caitlin Green as secondary author on Britons and Anglo-Saxons Lincolnshire AD400-650 and moved the book to the same profile as Concepts of Arthur.

Also added a link to the other author profile in the description of the author profiles of both Thomas Green and Caitlin Green.
