IIRC, the standard is to merge to the older entry, but we've also considered what is the easiest option and made exceptions in a couple of cases, mostly based on the amount of books/works that would need editing.

In this case the oldest entries have profiles and have the most books, so I would use those, i.e.
https://www.bookogs.com/credit/28972-vasilii-semionovich-grossman
https://www.bookogs.com/credit/59383-gaito-gazdanov

Is there a problem using either of those?

Thank you, mirva, I will merge the authors to those entries, and rename the others to Duplicate.
