Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7173 comments I know we can use the author page for book details, but what about an author who is deceased?

I'm thinking specifically about this author's official page:

This author had multiple pseudonyms and not all editions now carry the original published name. (Different authors on different editions - which is correct?). I'd like to use this site to sort it out, so am wondering if it can be used.

But the question is also generic.

In general, deceased authors do not have an official site. An exception is when there is one managed by their estate or heirs.

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7173 comments Wonderful! Thank you, Rivka. It's nice to have a clear thought process.
