Work with No Author
Join LibraryThing to post.
Why does this work, http://www.librarything.com/work/12549136, have no author while each of the editions does? Should this be bugged?
#1 This should have an author. I've seen this before and just use the other author feature to set the primary author to match editions and cover photo.
#2 yes. The other author list gave it as no promary author, so I updated it.
If the title or author that the system is using for the work doesn't look right compared to the editions, the "Recalculate title/author" link (on the right hand side of the work page in the Advanced box) will usually sort it out.
i wonder if the two near identical names with the same page were hard for the system to digest.
anyhow seems making the canonical authors name and the primary authors name identical has sorted it.
10 I went to add other authors and entered a primary author, which sorted it.
