Kimberly (kimberlytahoe) | 11 comments I came across this author as well. There are no books and no quotes, it needs a super to delete it.

Authors cannot be deleted; they can only be merged -- and any librarian can do that.

Although we're working on a script to delete authors with no books automagically, so I wouldn't worry overmuch about it.
