Mladen Trpčevski (mladen-trpcevski) | 49 comments Somehow this guy became a Goodreads author, but he modified an already existing author with the same name! He is NOT the author of "The Fifteen Biggest Lies about the Economy" - the true author is Joshua Holland from AlterNet!

Nan (xxmzsmilesxx) | 1167 comments I've made another profile for him. He is Joshua^^Holland, ^= 1 space.

Mladen Trpčevski (mladen-trpcevski) | 49 comments Wrong. There are already two people who were fans of the AlterNet author, but have thereby become fans of the Goodreads author. The point is to make a new profile for the Goodreads author and return the AlterNet author back to his original profile.

Nan (xxmzsmilesxx) | 1167 comments The thing is that that author already claimed Joshua^Holland as his GR profile. I can't do anything about this, and the only solution that I am capable of doing is to make an entirely different profile for Joshua Holland from AlterNet.
I think we should wait for a more experience librarian opinion.

Z-squared | 8580 comments Because a claimed profile is involved, only an employee can do anything (if there's even anything to be done at this point).

Mladen Trpčevski (mladen-trpcevski) | 49 comments OK, I will then send a message to those two fans and tell them to change their favorite author.

E.A.G. E.A.G. (eagodwin) | 2 comments I have just added my book and there is another author with the same name. E.A.G. I wrote Clans of Tafackar: The War Begins. I was wondering if that could be fixed and only connect the specified to my own profile. Thanks!

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments #7 - Done.

Moved the other book to "E.A. G." since it is the only way to differentiate when everything is initials.

Also, added the cover to your book that amazon had.
