And of course, those apostrophes...
I'd like to be offered some selections even with just last name of the author, or no author at all.
After a bulk fetch, I go back through the remaining books to solve individual problems. Typically, for a problem book, I copy and paste the author and title into the comments section (so I don't lose them), then leave only the author's last name and one unique word from the title. That seems to produce decent results in most cases. For a multi-author book, I try each author. If I get a good result, I replace the full author and title either by allowing overwrite or using cut/paste from the comments filed where I stored them originally.
