Michelle Booth (michellebooth) | 16 comments A new book by John Yeoman, Dream of Darkness: A Hippo Yeoman Mystery, has been claimed by (or attributed to) another John Yeoman, the author who has Quentin Blake as his illustrator.

Would someone with higher privileges than me be able to remove it from the other John Yeoman and put it on this John Yeoman's list of books please?

This is the John Yeoman who writes the Elizabethan mysteries:

This is the book that has been attributed to the wrong John Yeoman: ASIN B00SOTL9YA, Title: Dream of Darkness: A Hippo Yeoman Mystery

It was the actually author that did that. All he did was forget the extra space in his name, which put it in the default single space profile. His profile is "John^^Yeoman" where ~=space.

Michelle Booth (michellebooth) | 16 comments Sorry, just to be clear. Does that mean he should put the two spaces between his names when he adds his new books to the GR database?

Question: Are any of these also by the 2-space John Yeoman?
