Red Nails
by Robert E.Howard (1906 – 1936)
Pasted from http://librivox.org/red-nails-by-robert-e-howard/

missing space between E. and Howard prevents linking the author to his other works

As the heading entry is only that , not a search field I would be surprised if that was the problem :D
I am interested in what the poster was trying to do - so if the fix doesn't work , let us know where you are trying to match them up ?

Anne
Ah I see what the problem was - will have to think on that :hmm: - it will work in this case but not in many others

Anne,
you may have already figured this out, but just to follow up. The name isn't actually a link, I just called it that to make things simpler. It searches on what is displayed as the author's name. There are different types of indexing, but this one doesn't compensate for misspellings, without a space after the ‘.’ it read E.Howard as a word. Not so shabby when you realize that OCLC also cannot deal with a misspelling. And FirstSearch wouldn't have brought him up by just entering 'how' as author, which LibriVox does.

Thanks Michelle
I worked out what was happening - it doesn't happen very often but will be fixed for other cases when it must happen. I think there is a way round it for all cases , thanks for letting us know.

Anne
