message 1: by ehk2 (new)

ehk2 | 19 comments I'm reading the following book (it's also merged with other language editions):
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/76...

On the author page, the book is not shown:
http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

I couldn't figure out the problem. Any idea or help?

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Got it -- the problem was that the author's name was transliterated differently on the most popular edition. I'm not sure why that kept the book from showing up on the author's book list when there were editions with the correct transliteration, but it did. (Might want to take that to the Feedback group to report a bug?)

It's not exactly a bug. It's a known consequence of some other fixes that were put in a while back, as I understand it. As long as all the editions have the same primary author (which should be the case, barring errors like this), there's no problem.
