I was fooling around and ended up with a list of all the books by a particular author, listing at top the books that are in the PBS system and under that the books that are not.  I have no idea what I did, but I can't figure out how to do it again.  I found that list really handy.  Can anyone tell me how to do that?  Browsing by author just brings me a list of their books in the system set up so I can order the book, not just a list of the books in the system.

When you get one book by an author, you can click on that author's name it will bring up all of the titles they are associated with.

Ok, that was easy.  Thanks for the info.

I think it would be great if they put that in their search category as "book list by author" or something like that.

But be aware that not all the author's books may really be in that list. Sometimes there are variations on an author's name so they don't get sorted as one list. Also, sometimes a book will be connected to the right name, but if you click on the authors name, that book won't actually be on the list.

There were a few of those that I and some others found a while back, and turned the glitch into TPTB. But I don't know that it's been fixed.

So, when in doubt, check various sources and various ways the author could be listed.

Hi Kate and welcome to PBS!  I have a suggestiion that may help you in your search for author's books besides what you find on here. Have you tried fantasticfiction.com? It's a wonderful site that has all the authors. It shows pics of the authors, all their books in order-also with pics of the books. Plus, it has all the books that are going to be released in the near future. I use it quite often whenever I am searching a book or an author and is especially helpful seeing the books listed in their series. Try it and I think you will find it very interesting.
