jenjn79 | 565 comments All fixed! I'm not sure how they got combined in the first place...they must have (incorrectly) had the same author listed first and someone combined them. Then info go changed and the books got messed up....either that, or we've got some poltergeists hanging out here at GR ;)

Anyway...I changed all the first authors of the Wings books to the same author as the Biscuit ones, which made them be listed on the Biscuit combined page. Separated, then changed all the Wings authors back to what they were.

This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments Generally, one way to separate books like this without changing the author names is to go to the combine books page for both authors, try to find one of the books (it could be listed under either author's name, but will only be listed under one) and then use the Separate Tool on that book. On the basic combine page it doesn't list books where the first author is someone else, but these will show up under the separate tool and can be usually be separated at that point.
