Series description

Frederick Frankford Fletcher was a clumsy, nerdy, socially inept accountant working for a firm, until he was turned into a vampire. He immediately started his own firm so that he could work nights, gained a vampire's astounding physical prowess, and remained nerdy and socially inept. Things start happening when he decides to attend his tenth year high school reunion (it seemed like a good idea at the time.)

It turns out that parahumans helped the Americans win the Revolution, and in return were granted special privileges, although they keep a low profile. A super top-secret agency deals with their affairs, and with individuals that go rogue. If this sounds sadly like the Native American, consider the difficulty of sending werewolves and demons on a Trail of Tears.

The first book in this humorous series is told like a series of interrelated short stories making up a novel.

Series?!

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
