Christopher Shevlin | 9 comments Thanks, Iafon. I don't know why I couldn't find it when I searched.

Michael | 262 comments Possibly because it was listed under Chris Shevlin, rather than Christopher. Chris has now been merged with Christopher, so you have three books (and a harsh review from yourself!) on your author profile.

Christopher Shevlin | 9 comments Thanks for merging them, Michael. And you have to be honest with yourself, don't you? It's out of print now anyway.

Amara Tanith (aftanith) Just as a side note, if you're interested in claiming your author profile, you can do that here. :)

message 7: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Shevlin | 9 comments Thanks, Amara. I've requested it, but I think it takes a few days.

message 8: by Amara (new)

Amara Tanith (aftanith) 2-3 business days, usually. :)
