I headed over to do some author cleanup because I had a few authors in my wish list that are... strangely alphabetized.
And then I realized I had some questions. What is the correct format for JK Rowling? JRR Tolkien? Obviously the second initial is a middle name, but since we use the initials as the first name, will that create non logicial searches? Or is there a guideline somewhere that I haven't found?
There is a volunteer team that works on editing PBS data like that; you might want to check out this thread for more information: http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=60867
Among other things, it addresses your particular query:
"If an author has initials. There is to be a space between them. "J period space R period space R period space"
