Lee Howlett | 117 comments Hi,
Could someone tag the other Jeff Moon for this book and the others below? There are two men by this name on Goodreads. One is an author and the other is a narrator. The link for Jeff Moon on this record goes to the author's page instead of the narrator's page. This is the Jeff Moon who should be credited:

Same problem for these titles: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Is there some way that the two Jeff Moons can be differentiated? When I've created records for the narrator Jeff Moon, there is no way to currently tag the correct one. It looks like every title is automatically connecting to the author Jeff Moon's page.

Thanks!

done

1. Goodreads differentiates between authors of the same name with spaces before the last name.

2. Jeff Moon the narrator has 2 spaces: Jeff^^Moon where the ^ equals a space.

3. If you add a work to Goodreads you can use the 2 spaces to make it go directly to the correct profile.

4. Goodreads uses parentheses to denote a series. If you put something in parentheses in the title field, the system thinks it's a series name. I moved: Full-cast Production to the edition field for these works.
