Disambiguation Notice

This page was formerly split, presumably because the topics written about are very diverse and an assumption was made that they couldn't have been the same author. Works that were previously on #2 had been moved to #1, leaving #2 empty. All the works in the unknowns were related to works in #1, so I unsplit the page.
