Somehow I have managed to have several 'authors' that are an amalgamation of different names. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get them split up to how they are supposed to be.
When I browse the Authors, it will just have a couple of entries like:
David Mack, Keith R. A. Decandido
David Mack, Marco Palmieri, Dayton Ward, Kevin Dilmore
listed under the D, whereas I obviously expect the former to be two separate authors, and four authors for the latter.
I have tried removing second author completely from the books that had the former author, but the moment I re-add them it becomes its own unique category yet again. I have tried this through grid editing and the individual metadata screen with no result.
How do I convince Calibre to treat these authors right?
Note that I use the default author split settings, which should be capable of splitting those author strings just fine.
