Maryla Szymiczkowa and related authors

Maryla Szymiczkowa is the pen name of the couple Jacek Dehnel and Piotr Tarczynski. To my knowledge, Piotr’s only published books are under this pen name, but Jacek also publishes under his own name. Jacek’s author page does not have any reference to the pen name Maryla Szymiczkowa. Maryla Szymiczkowa’s author page does not have any reference to it being the pseudonym of Jacek Dehnel and Piotr Tarczynski.

Most of the works published under the pen name Maryla Szymiczkowa appear with the author name of Maryla Szymiczkowa, except for one: The book Tajemnica domu Helclow published under the pen name Maryla Szymiczkowa appears on LT with the author ‪Jacek Dehnel. This is the original Polish title of the book published in English as Mrs. Mohr Goes Missing, which is a separate work on LT with the author ‬Maryla Szymiczkowa.

‪Piotr by himself doesn’t appear to have an author page of his own. However there is an author page for‬ Piotr Tarczynski Dehnel, Maryla Szymiczkowa Jacek with no associated works.

What I think should happen is that the author of Tajemnica domu Helclow should be changed to Maryla Szymiczkowa, Tajemnica domu Helclow should be combined with‪ Mrs. Mohr Goes Missing,‬ Maryla Szymiczkowa’s author page should indicate that it’s the pseudonum of Jacek Dehnel and Piotr Tarczynski, and Jacek Dehnel’s author page should somehow indicate that he also writes with his partner Piotr Tarczynski under the pen name of Maryla Szymiczkowa. (If it were my database, I’d also delete the author Piotr Tarczynski Dehnel, Maryla Szymiczkowa Jacek, but it’s not really doing any harm.)

My problem is that I’m new to combining & separating, and I don’t know what the appropriate LT treatment is for pen names like this. I have never tried to combine titles that have different listed authors. Can someone help me straighten this out?

Edit: Maryla Szymiczkowa‘s author page does indicate in the short biography that it’s the pen name of Jacek Dehnel and Piotr Tarczynski.

Most of that does not involve combining. The information can be entered in CK of the various authors.

Author pages cannot be deleted because they are formed when someone uses them. Someone has used that as the main author.

I have combined the two titles. The easiest way to do this is with the workbench, lower right of work pages.

>1 Charon07: You can enter the info who constitutes the pen name into disambiguation field too. Ditto for Dehnel's page and info about collab pen name. Anything important to identifying and distinguishing authors can go there (as well as to the more general short bio)

And would it make sense to use the Relationships field to make links to the individuals author pages?

>4 2wonderY: Only for the other part of the duo (as collaborator or some such), but he doesn't have an author page.
