Series description

Meren is a widowed nobleman, with three daughters and an adopted son. He serves as "Eyes and Ears" to the pharaoh Tutankhamen, who is in his early teens as the series begins. Meren has paternal feelings as well as a proper respect for his royal master. The country is still suffering from the aftershocks of the rule of Tutankhamun's predecessor, Ankhenaten.

Meren's family suffered under the rule His father, and other family members, were killed for refusing to abandon the familiar gods. Meren, a teenager at the time, was tortured into submitting, and still feels a sense of shame.

The short story "The Death of a Place-Seeker" is placed chronologically rather than by publication date; it was published in the same year as Eater of Souls, 1997.

The series is discussed in: "Linda S. Robinson and Lauren Haney: Detection in the Land of Mysteries" by Rita Rippetoe, pp. 11-21. in: The Detective as Historian ed. by Ray B. Browne and Lawrence A. Kreiser, Jr. (Bowling Green, OH : Bowling Green State University, 2000), pp. 11-21.

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.
