Saharvetes (saharavetes) | 11 comments This author: Tom Thomas seems to have written hundreds of books; co-authoring with everyone from William Shakespeare to Friedrich Nietzsche to Albert Einstein. In particular, what do we do with books that have only him as author, like this one?


Ralph Gallagher | 212 comments It looks like he published a bunch of public domain works through CreateSpace and is crediting himself as the author.

Lobstergirl I didn't know that was possible. What a douche.

No. But I understand the temptation.

Erich | 38 comments rivka: but shouldn't all these books basically list the original author as author, and Tom Thomas as editor?

That seems like a good idea to me. I've actually seen him listed as such on another site.

Yup.

Erich | 38 comments Ok, did that. Wow, there was a lot to do. However didn't have the time to focus on other details (like lots of the books mention "Volume 1" while there is no volume 2, so I reckon it should be removed. By the way, there's another Tom Thomas which I discovered in the process, so the Tom Thomas we're talking of now is located here: Tom Thomas (2 spaces)
