Author profiles in different languages should never be merged.

Instead, Maxim Gorky (the default English/international version of his name) should be added as primary author to all his books.

Done.
Also done for the books on Máximo Gorki, yet another spelling.

If you have specific books that need to be combined, please link to them.
