Series republishing under new author pen names
Join LibraryThing to post.
The Scorch series was originally published under the (real) author’s names of Toby Neal and Emily Kimelman. They have now started to reissue them under new pen names of Toby Jane and Emily Reed, to separate them from their other genres. I can’t figure out the best way of indicating the relationships here. Any advice, please?
In my opinion the authors need to be combined, and the books as well unless there were any major changes made in the new additions. This is a bit complicated because each pair has one of the author names split.
At the very least, the other names need to be entered on the author pages.
BTW, I entered Emily Reed as 'Other author' on the work page of Scorch Road. That can be changed once/if the books are combined. It gives an author page for filling in information.
I would agree with Martha -- if the books are the same (no major changes in the new editions) then they should be merged. And alternate pseudonyms should be merged with the author's other name.
