Hi, Mayrie, Amber, Jamie, and all,
I did exactly as Mayrie did and got ten results.  I read through the ten 
results instead of opening the combo box for the list of authors; I did not see 
how to do that.  But none of the ten results were by Gallo.

  Hi Jamie,

  I'm not Amber, but... I used the advanced search link. I typed in Gallo, 
Tina. When I got a list of results, I used the "modify your results" section, 
chose author, and then opened the combo box listing specific authors from which 
I could choose. Your author was not among them.  This implies to me that there 
are none of her books on the site.  I infer this because when I did the search 
with an author that I know exists on the site, her name comes up in the list of 
authors available for viewing.

  It is definitely different.  But it does work.  It isn't as comforting, as 
you don't get an actual message telling you that a particular author doesn't 
exist on the site when that is the case.  But it does work.  Change is 
frustrating sometimes, isn't it?

  Amber, the last name is Gallo (no w on the end). Tina is the first name.

  Tell me if you find any books by her at all without getting hundreds or 
thousands of results and tell me how you do it?

  I can find a Donald Gallo but without searching through lots of results I 
can't come up with others. I liked it better when I could type in Gallo and get 
all authors with that name, or even Tina Gallo (though I used to find the more 
you put in the more chances you had of not finding something that really was in 
the collection) and get only those authors.
