Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Last I recalled, we didn't include cover artists in the author fields, but I feel like there might have been more discussion of that lately. What is our current stance?

(I ask specifically with regards to Michael Frost, who is a cover photographer being credited as an author in Amazon listings for a lot of Simon&Schuster books -- including sometimes as the primary author, which doesn't seem to bother Amazon's customer service people.)

mlady_rebecca | 593 comments Last I heard, we don't include cover artists in the author fields, but can include them in the description field.

Haneen, if you search the existing books and can't find it, you can add a new edition manually. (Please start a new thread under "Book Issues" with information about the specific book if you're having trouble with that.)
