My apologies. I didn't expect anyone to work on this so quickly, so I added to ##2 & 4. Also #6

Since she used Aunt Fanny as her pen name during her lifetime, and some? all? of the covers on this profile show that name, Aunt Fanny should either replace Frances Elizabeth Barrow or be added as primary author on the editions that show Frances Elizabeth Barrow.

Since the Aunt^Fanny profile has disappeared, the name can be re-added with one space.

If there are no, or just a few, covers with Frances Elizabeth Barrow, the author profile can simply be changed to Aunt Fanny. Any editions with Frances Elizabeth Barrow can have that name added as secondary author.

(I didn't check whether there were any other variants of her name in use on the public domain editions.)

Fanny was merged into Aunt Fanny, which was incorrect, as not all books on the Fanny profile belong to Aunt Fanny. Each book by Aunt Fanny had to be moved individually. Now it's hard to tell which ones are not by Aunt Fanny.

I've checked all the editions with covers and added Frances Elizabeth Barrow as secondary author.

And added a link to Aunt Fanny in the description of this profile.

Arenda | 19990 comments I've checked the books that were on the Aunt Fanny profile and moved all books that were by a different author.

Most were moved (back) to Fanny: https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...
A couple were by a different author.

Liz V. (wwwgoodreadscomlizv) | 35937 comments Thank you Nada, Lethe and Arenda.

I thought I saw an incorrectly moved book by Fanny but GR wouldn't let me pull it up or access page. Cache thing I thought and planned to check today.

Existing series listings incomplete.
