Bug Description

When downloading book metadata for a book where the author uses 2 initals (e.g. R. A. Salvatore) and from any source, the download fails with the error message Failed metadata. This also affects books that have been able to download metadata on previous versions. This does not affect authors that only have one initial

Workarounds tried:
* Space between initials (R. A. Salvatore)
* No space between initials (R.A. Salvatore)
* No initials (Salvatore)
* Book ID with no author
* No book ID with no author

This issue has only been happening since I upgraded to 1.28.0. I am using the Windows 32 bit version of Calibre on a Windows 8 machine.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
