message 1: by Nathan (new)

Nathan (nathan_dunbar) | 3 comments Sorry if this has been asked before, but is there a way to distinctively list books by authors with the same name? I just added a book for the author listed (Chris Stedman) and there's another book by different author with the same name. The author page is showing both books.

Camille (camlovesraptors) | 1 comments Yes there is. One author will have a single space between his first and last names, the other will have two spaces between his first and last names.

Gotcha. Will this affect the search mechanism for the author with 2 spaces?

Pertinacia (goodreadscompertinacia) | 175 comments Hi,

this author are actually two authors with the same name:

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

1. Jan Zrzavý (1890 - 1977) was a Czech painter and illustrator. He's a co-author of the book Kytice.

2. Jan Zrzavý (1964) is a Czech biologist. He's an author of all the other books listed.

Could somebody fix it, please?

Thank you very much!

It gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book or author is also used for other books. I am closing this thread. Start new ones for other books.
