Series description

Originally called the College Mystery series, Beverly Gray is a college student and later a reporter solving mysteries in her exotic travels.
The series was first published by A.L. Burt of Chicago and New York.  One of the volumes included was Beverly Gray at the World's Fair.  In the late 1930s when the series was picked up by Grosset & Dunlap, this volume was omitted from the series because of the forthcoming 1939 NY World's Fair.  As a result, only the early editions (and a reprint by Applewood) were published for World's Fair.  The numbering seen on any books will differ from this list by this omission.
Late titles in the series were reprinted in pictorial cover editions by Clover, a division of McLoughlin, from the Grosset & Dunlap printing plates.
A series book group and magazine was inspired by this series.  The magazine is called Susabella Passengers and features articles and reviews of vintage series books for boys and girls.


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.
