The reasoning behind my change for Pathfinder Tales is that the books are really standalone and it is a decision of Paizo, the publisher, to market them together. Thus, in my mind, the publisher series.
Now, reading the help page redirecting people to the Wikipedia page for "Book series", I see that the series field can be used more widely. So really, I don't know. Please revert if you think my change was hasty.

I'd say the "Forgotten Realms" novels form a publisher series, but "The Legend of Drizzt" is a series. But I know some Dark Sun novels (The Prism Pentad series) were republished by Penguin Books. Then why does Library Thing expect us to set the “publisher series" at the work level? I think I will just stay clear of the "publisher series" field from now on!

I;d have to look at it when I get home but I just remmeber a "special #1" title that was made for origins.

I left them a comment and asked. SHould have done that in the first place.

Oh, and just to let you know, I;m currently going through and finding all the titles that I can. I'm making a mess of the basic KODT series page but I'll go back through and combine them all later today or tomorrow. It's either to add them to the series and then look for pairs.

thanks again,

I noticed that you did most of the Knights of the dinner table series work here at LT. I noticed this work here that's not assigned to the origins series. I don;t see a '01 elsewhere. Can you figure out please where it goes:
