Andy | 1 comments Sorry if this issue has been addressed already, I'm new at the librarian thing.

There are two separate authors Ursula K. Le Guin and Ursula K. Le Guin, is there a way to combine these authors the way we combine books? The former is the right one, but the latter has three fans, perhaps they can be attached to their rightful author?

The dupe Le Guin used to have one book to her name, The Word for World is Forest, which maybe is how she got generated.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Andy, I've merged the two authors together, which transfers the fans as well. (The second author profile had an extra space between the K. and the Le; this is something which librarians sometimes do on purpose -- see the thread for "disambiguation by spaces" -- but it appears to have happened accidentally in this case. To fix it, you have to edit the author (not the book) and change the name to exactly match the correct name. When you save, you'll be prompted to merge the two authors.)
