Rod Brown (rodbrown) | 120 comments Several books have been misattributed to the Brian MdDonald who is a NY Times writer born in 1954 with this Goodreads profile:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

The other Brian McDonald was born February 18, 1965, and has just one book on his profile so far:

More information about the 1965 Brian McDonald is available on his professional web site, Wikepedia and imdb.com:
https://writeinvisibleink.com
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_M...
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0567675/

According to his web site, the 1965 Brian McDonald is the author of four books currently attributed to the 1954 Brian McDonald:
* Invisible Ink: A Practical Guide to Building Stories that Resonate
* Invisible Ink Box Set for Writers
* The Golden Theme
* Ink Spots
* Old Souls

Additionally, I believe all the Dark Horse graphic novels currently under the 1954 Brian McDonald should also be moved to the 1965 Brian McDonald as he is noted as a regular contributor to that company in the Wikipedia article and several of the titles are noted there.
Those books would include:
* B.P.R.D., Vol. 1: Hollow Earth and Other Stories
* B.B.P.O. Dusza Wenecji i inne opowieści
* Aliens vs. Predator Omnibus, Vol. 2
* Predator: Strange Roux
* Predator: Prey to the Heavens #1 (Predator Vol. 1)
* Aliens vs Predator - Hell-Bent/Pursuit/Lefty's Revenge/Chained To Life And Death
* Aliens vs. Predator #8: Hell-bent/Pursuit/Lefty's Revenge/Chained to Live & Death
* Predator n. 10

Thank you!

Sandra | 24789 comments OK. 1965 Brian Mc has 2 profiles, not just the one with Lost In Space. He's a GR author so, books will be moved to that profile.

Sandra | 24789 comments Books moved to correct profile.

I've requested staff merge the Lost in Space profile into the GR author profile, as librarians can't touch GR author profiles.
