Stephanie Seidel | 3 comments The page for the author Craig Wright
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
lists books of at least two different authors, if not three. Some, mostly music books are by Craig Milton Wright, former Yale professor
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_M...
There is a book about baseball by a Craig R. Wright, I suppose it is
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craig_R...
and there are several theater plays, I suppose the author is likely this person

The main Craig Wright profile acts as default for all the authors with that name, that's why it ended with so many different authors inside. I've now separated them into different profiles.

- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (default, professor of music)

- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (playwright) -> with 2 spaces

- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (editor) -> 3 spaces

- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (healing herbs) -> 4 spaces

- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (Craig R. Wright)

- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (Craig S. Wright)

- https://www.goodreads.com/author/show... (Craig D. Wright)

Stephanie Seidel | 3 comments Wow, that was fast 😮 , thank you! And they are even seven different authors! 😃

Hm, since we seem to know the middle names of four of them, maybe it would be a good idea to include that in the pages' titles? Or is there a standard that forbids that?

Stephanie Seidel | 3 comments Hm, the quotes on Craig M.Wright's (professor) page
www.goodreads.com/author/show/125217.... still seem to be actually quotes by Craig Wright (television author)
