I have moved these works to other profiles.

It is Goodreads policy to maintain the original author of a work as the primary author. The works published initially under the name Charles Lowe will need to keep that name as the primary author.

If you would like to have your profile name changed to David Charles Lowe, the books could all have that name as the primary author, as it encompasses the names David C. Lowe and Charles Lowe.

If you choose to do that, please contact Goodreads Support, as only Goodreads staff can edit Goodreads author profiles. You can reach them from this link: https://www.goodreads.com/about/conta...

If you want to do that, and let me know, I can go ahead and set the books up with that author, so that only your profile name will need to change. Of course GR support can do that, but I am happy to facilitate it.

Otherwise, there will continue to be 2 profiles.

The site is heavily cached. The books are removed. They will disappear eventually.

Scott | 21369 comments David, if you click to the page that shows all your books, I believe it will update immediately (it always does for me, anyway.)
