Antonomasia | 509 comments On the Combine page for Slovak author and translator Pavel Vilikovský
https://www.goodreads.com/book/combin...
Frankenstein appears, which means that there must be at least one edition where he's been wrongly listed as the lead author instead of as the translator.

But it's not the edition that appears in his list of works
https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...
(or two others I managed to locate using ISBNs for his translations of the novel which I found elsewhere on the internet.)

There are over 3000 editions of Frankenstein.

How to find that rogue edition, to switch it back to Mary Shelley as lead author, with Vilikovský as the translator, and thereby remove it from Vilikovský's Combine page?


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6773 comments Go to disambiguate on the edit author page. Only those editions that have the author as primary will appear on that page. The titles/editions are clickable, so you can fix them individually without disambiguating if that is the goal.
