Series description

The Hon. Miss Phryne Fisher is the main character in Australian author Kerry Greenwood's series of detective novels. She lives in St. Kilda, Melbourne, in luxury and works as a private detective. She was born to a poor family, but inherited a fortune after World War I claimed several lives between the heir to the title and her father. During the war, she served in a women's ambulance service in France. Her money, status, and wartime contacts aid her in her ability to solve crimes. She also has help from the members of her household and a police detective inspector. Beware - she has a string of lovers in the series - a reason I don't recommend this series to my aunt. Aside from the lovers, I think the series qualifies as cozy. An Australian televison series based on the books first aired in February 2012.

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.
