Series description

This Radio Boys is properly a publisher's series since it collects together works from several writers. Except for the pairs of books by a given writer or pair of writers, the stories have no real continuity. However, for now, please leave it as a regular series.

#1 Secret Service and #3 Thousand Islands were initially released as by J. W. Duffield. This was corrected in later printings to Frank Honeywell, the correct author.

#2 Flying Service and #4 Under the Sea were indeed written by Duffield.

Both Honeywell and Duffield are separate real people so please do not combine the authors on the basis of this publisher mistake.

The last two books were reprints of stories from the Bill Brown series as published by Hurst and written by Wayne Whipple and S. F. Aaron. The titles in this series are #5 Radio Boys' Cronies (originally Bill Brown's Radio) and #6 Radio Boys' Loyalty (originally Bill Brown Listens In). Canonical title limitations result in the original titles being displayed here.

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.
