Aimee (pebbles320) | 13 comments I've just noticed that when go to My Books and sort by author name, The Star Witness comes up at the top. However it shouldn't as the author's name is Andy Hamilton so it should be sorted with other H authors.
It even comes above Aaronovitch, Ben so it's not like it's being sorted by the author's first name.

Not sure exactly what's going on but it seems the author name has been entered in the wrong format so it's not sorting properly. I'd appreciate it if someone could look into this.

Can you please check if the book is sorting correctly now?

Arenda | 22171 comments There are four different profiles for an Andy Hamilton. Their books were all mashed up. I've sorted the books and moved them to their matching author profiles.

Aimee (pebbles320) | 13 comments Thank you, it's now in the right place and showing as Hamilton, Andy.

Aimee (pebbles320) | 13 comments Looking at the author profile for Andy Hamilton, it looks like Old Harry's Game and the subsequent series should be listed as 'Not a book' in line with other BBC radio series.
