Randy Harmelink | 108 comments These two entries appear to be for the same author:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

TIA.


message 2: by Emily (new)

Emily | 12948 comments The unclaimed profile has a follower (meaning it is not "blank"), and the author is a Goodreads author (so librarians can't edit those). So I have referred this to the dedicated staff thread:

Balint Horvath | 56 comments Hi!

Please merge or link the following two profiles:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

The second contains the author by his name's Hungarian transliteration.

Emily | 12948 comments #3 We do not merge transliterated or translated author profiles. I have added a link to the bio section of each of them to the other.

Renske | 10660 comments 5 Is there any information the books 'Letters to Xavier' and 'Dear Xavier' belong to the Goodreads author?
If not, this is a case of two authors with the same name where someone has incorrectly added the biography and profile image of the claimed profile to the other profile.
