Alissa | 31 comments Hello, I've been sorting books by authors (of the same name) named "William Harrison" to clean up the list of books attributed to the William Harrison author of "The Description of England" (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...). Problem is, even if I successfully changed the author for each wrongly-attributed book and checked all links to be sure everything pointed to the correct author profile, 3 books which are not by the WH of "The Description of England" are still listed in his author page:
Black August by William Neal Harrison
Brubaker by William Neal Harrison, W.D. Richter (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...)
Colloquial Russian by William Harrison, Stephen Le Fleming, Yelena Clarkson (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...)

I've properly changed the authors of the above books, so if you click on the author link adjacent the book cover you get directed to the proper author profile, but they are still listed in the main page of "The Description of England" William Harrison.

I made those changes last week, I hoped it was just a matter of time for the search results to be updated but that not seems to be the case. Please note that if you click on the link below the author cover page list "More books by NAME SURNAME…" the list appears updated, for both the WH of the "The Description of England" and William Neal Harrison and the William Harrison of the Russian books.

Suggestions? Thank you.
