Monica | 18 comments So in looking at Stephen King profile, the books that are contributed to him under pseudonym Stephen King (Richard Bachman) and/or Richard Bachman aren't linking. Is this because there are two Richard Bachman profiles? I don't know how to fix this but would like to get credit in my most read authors list for reading the Richard Backman/Stephen King books for Stephen King. Can someone please help?

Monica | 18 comments This is also a problem with Dean Koontz
and K.R. Dwyer and Brian Coffey and his other 3 or so pseudonyms. Even though Dean Koontz is listed as the author, the books for Dwyer and Coffey aren't showing on Koontz's author profile page. Is this how it is supposed to work or am I doing something wrong?

Looks like someone merged the duplicate Bachman profile.

The Koontz books are there. They just will show late in the list, and there are a lot of Koontz books.

Monica | 18 comments Thank you for your response.

This may not be the place to ask this. Let me know if I should post elsewhere.

So if the author has a pseudonym, and the real name is listed on the book as well, only the pseudonym will show up on the list of "authors most read"? Is this correct?

Thank you again

I believe that is correct.
