Cannot Add Multiple Authors to Meta

Hi,

I'm having a problem adding multiple authors to the meta of a recently converted document. I'm learning more about Subversion so I converted this HTML page to an ePub format (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn-book.html).

I want to add the authors, but it's only taking the first one.

Quote:
--authors, -a¶

Set the authors. Multiple authors should be separated by the & character. Author names should be in the order Firstname Lastname.
Based on the documentation above I try the code below:
Code:
$ ebook-meta svn-manual-1.5.epub -a "Ben Colllins-Sussman" & "Brian W. Fitzpatrick" & "C. Michael Pilato"
It only takes the first author. Thanks for any help.
