Kim | 604 comments Ok done #9 and #10. They're actually two different authors. I've separated all the works by John Dudley Ball as per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dud...

message 14: by Kim (new)

Kim | 604 comments Ok I see by the cover of The Kiwi Target that it is the same author. Damn wiki. Fixed it.

Peter (pete_c) | 388 comments I just noticed that we now have several books that are NOT by the mystery writer John Dudley Ball listed as being by him on http://www.goodreads.com/author/list/395992.John_Dudley_Ball. (These are the last 6 or 7 books listed, if I remember correctly.) I believe these include, but may not be limited to, books written by John Ball.

There are also 4 or 5 books by the mystery writer John Dudley Ball listed as being by John Ball at http://www.goodreads.com/author/list/5304086.John_Ball.

Also, on this page (http://www.goodreads.com/author/list/5304086.John_Ball) there are books by several different authors by the name of John Ball. I think John Ball will need disambiguation.

Kim | 604 comments Which ones? I checked all the John Dudley Ball books from this site - http://www.stonehamlibrary.org/africa...

None of the books listed by John Ball are on that list. And yes John Ball needs disambiguation. I started it but haven't had a chance to keep going yet.

All of the problem ones on http://www.goodreads.com/author/list/... show an author as John Dudley Ball, but who is not the mystery writer by that name.

Check these:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/91...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/80...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/52...

I'm not at all sure about these, but they need checking, too:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24...

I hope this helps.

The books on the John Ball list at http://www.goodreads.com/author/list/... that I know belong to John Dudley Ball are:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35...

Amazon also states that these are ones too:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/67...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/53...

I hope this helps.
