Series description

The series begins in Glasgow, Scotland, May Day, 1492.  Gilbert Cunningham is the youngest son of an aristocratic Scottish family that lost their lands after his father and two older brothers were killed fighting for James III against the future James IV.   Gil is studying to be a notary and working for his uncle David Cunningham who is the senior judge of the Consistory Court of the archdiocese.    Gil expects to become a priest: the best help that his uncle can offer him for his career is to find him a benefice.    When Gil finds a woman murdered, the case falls under Judge Cunningham's jurisdiction, and he assigns Gil to the investigation.

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.
