Not that it matters much, but it’s not logical to have a section title “Books” alongside “Selected writings”: Either make it a subsection, or rename the latter to “Articles” or the like.

Renamed “writings” to “articles”

Why do we have two entries for Bill Dwyer: William Dwyer and William G. Dwyer?

I have merged them now.

(I take it your question is rethorical. Otherwise, let me know and I’ll explain what happened. In general, we should all keep in mind to (a) add all plausible re-directs to new entryes; but (b) check for possibly existing title variants before creating a new entry. )

You are right. I could have merged but was not sure if the extra entry was accidental or left over from a previous existence, and in fact felt that the existence of the two variants indicated exactly what you said i.e. (a) and (b)!
