annob | 1561 comments Working on this. It's an odd one - there currently are two Paul^Kane (one space) and two Paul^^Kane (two spaces) profiles, which shouldn't be possible.

ETA: Your book now shows up under the right Paul Kane: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

annob | 1561 comments Both your book and the right Kane was ^ (one space). I turned the weird duplicate 1-space into 4-space, shifted the book back to the GR author and have sent contact message to staff to merge the now lonesome followers into the claimed profile.

^ - GR author - https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

The 'add book/author' function above the comment box in forum threads like this one can be used to find same-name author profiles. The Author tab in it is sensitive to exact spelling, including how many spaces and periods you put in between initials and names. That makes it easy to find the 2, 3 and 4 space profiles.
