In response to alexl's previous comment, I have created PAN Belle de Jour as the two books credited to Brooke Magnanti only credit her pen name. I have completed the profile for Belle de Jour and hyperlinked the two PAN's.

tsivihcra the artist Bill Hamper/Billy Childish (real name: Steven John Hamper) uses more aliases than I have had hot breakfasts:

William Charlie Hamper, Bill Hamper, Bill Hamper-Childish, Guy Hamper, Jack Ketch, Gus Claudius, Danger Bill Henderson (courtesy of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Childish)

I have created PAN Bill Hamper https://www.biblio.gs/credit/201336-Bill-Hamper and made the credit "Bill Hamper (a.k.a Billy Childish)" an ANV of that PAN. As there are no images of the actual credit, I can only assume an ANV is required. I detailed this in the Submission Notes.
I have hyperlinked both Bill Hamper and Billy Childish: https://www.biblio.gs/credit/97749-Billy-Childish and completed the profiles of both.

Therefore, https://www.biblio.gs/credit/97750-Bill-Hamper-a-k-a-Billy-Childish is no longer required.

I'm really torn about what to do with all these Madames, Mademoiselles etc.

For example while often credited as "Madame Leprince de Beaumont", there are also credits for "Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont".

I can't decide:
1) Should "Madame Leprince de Beaumont" be treated as a name variation or a pen name?
2) If it should be treated as a name variation, which version should be the primary name?

Nothing too urgent though, but as I will continue to enter more fairy tale books, I'd like to stay consistent.

mirva I would treat the titled names as ANVs of the real name PAN.

That was my gut feeling too, just in some cases the titled name is way more common than the real name. But unless someone opposes, that's what I'll do. Thanks. :)

alexl if Bear Grylls is the only form of his name then the Credit is correctly Bear Grylls. I have completed his profile listing his real name. The Chris Ryan profile also lists his real name.

It is my impression that this thread should only used when both the real name and pseudonym(s) are listed as individual Credits in the database.

It is also possible that posting to this thread has fallen by the wayside.

Curtis Richards is not a pseudonym of Dennis Etchinson!
Mr. Curtis (born 1937, mainly a literary agent) mentioned his two novelization jobs (Squirm & Halloween) in an interview.

Well that's interesting as both the Wikipedia article for Dennis Etchison: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Etchison and this Halloween Series fan site: http://halloweenmovie.wikia.com/wiki/Curtis_Richards both state that Curtis Richards is a pseudonym of Dennis Etchison.

I think you are confusing Curtis Richards with Richard Alan Curtis (born June 23, 1937) who is an American editor, literary agent and author: https://www.bookogs.com/credit/361911-richard-curtis

I know about those articles, stating Etchinson is Richards, here is one, denying it
http://www.fright.com/edge/JackMartin.htm
and two, crediting his Jack Martin books and/ or the novelizations without mentioning the first Halloween/ Curtis Richards
http://sf-encyclopedia.uk/fe.php?nm=etchison_dennis
http://www.darkecho.com/darkecho/horroronline/etchison.html

Unfortunately, I can't find the interview with Richard Alan Curtis, I read some years ago, online anymore. It was about his work as an agent and along the way he mentioned Squirm and Halloween in one or two sentences, seemingly preferring Squirm and not willing to talk about Halloween at all.

OK based on your sources I agree that there is doubt that Curtis Richards is a pseudonym of Dennis Etchison, so I have removed the profile from Curtis Richards and the link in Dennis Etchison.

However, I don't think it would be prudent to list Curtis Richards as pseudonym of Richard Alan Curtis based on your recollection of an interview. Feel free to research this topic further.
