BookishDreamer | 4 comments It appears there are 3 different entries for William Le Queux. Is it possible to merge these entries?

Yes it is possible. Just change the spelling of each profile to match the correct one. When asked if you want to merge the profiles - say yes. But take care that you are keeping the correct one. I did this one for you.

Melody (runningtune) | 13278 comments I even found a couple of other listings for him and threw those in there too. I think I combined all his work - but you can take a look.

willaful I wonder what the record is for most listings for the same author? I struck gold with E. Nesbit and I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't find them all. There was no way to mangle an author's name that hadn't been done to that poor woman!

Melody (runningtune) | 13278 comments I hate to tell you this but ....

willaful Oh man! What makes that even more sad was I specifically looked through The Railway Children for screw-ups. I guess I didn't look far enough. :-)

Melody (runningtune) | 13278 comments You can use the add book/author to enter a partial name and it will bring up the authors. I looked up e n and e. n and nes and edith n. But you were very thorough. That listing did appear as a secondary listing on only one book. Just trying to secure your record.

willaful Thanks for the tip. The regular search function is not very useful for this sort of thing.
