Citation, Documentation of Sources

Q. I want to cite one of George Orwell’s books in my bibliography. Given that we are dealing with a pseudonym, does the citation go under “Orwell, George” or “Blair, Eric Arthur [George Orwell]”?

A. Put the citation where you think your readers will look first, and use a cross- reference at the other name—e.g., “Blair, Eric Arthur. See Orwell, George.” Or, if you’re citing only one work, you could put the title in both places and save the reader a detour.
