Ralph McEwen | 40 comments I am not sure what is up but all the books by McCammon, Robert R. on my shelf have no publishing date and when I tried to add the author to this link the search did not find him?

Lobstergirl I've always found that you have to enter the author's name exactly as found in the database - Robert R. McCammon rather than McCammon, Robert R. I found him that way. The publishing dates are showing up on his author page.

Shay | 179 comments Ralph, I have found that some authors are just hard to pull up by search. Whether it's because of an initial or a misspelling, they just can't be found. When that happens, it's easiest to just input the name of a title of one of their books. That book will have a link to their name as entered into the GR database.

Ralph McEwen | 40 comments That does not seem proper. When I enter just "McCammon" I get three other enteries. The books on my shelf that are showing no Pub date are: Boy's Life, Gone South, Stinger, Bethany's Sin. I have refreshed my shelf and there is no change.

Ralph McEwen | 40 comments Maybe I am not being clear the search problem is here at the "add book / author" link.

Beth (bethjustbeth) | 1586 comments The search function/hyperlink function is buggy, today...several threads are mentioning having issues.
