Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 145 comments This book has a story by Richard Matheson and another one by his son, Richard Christian Matheson. The son is listed as a contributor, but the father is not. It won't let me add him. Apparently it thinks they are the same. Why is this?

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 145 comments Thanks, Emily, but that's not working. It stays "RichardMatheson."

Emily | 12992 comments Oh, it looks like Richard Matheson was already there, so it wouldn't let you change the one you added.
I added "Christian" to the middle name and it works now.

Should both people go by "Richard Matheson," you would put a second space between one of the entries.

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 145 comments Whew! Thanks, Emily.
