Series description

The main character in this series, set around the turn of the 19th-20th centuries, is Theodosia Throckmorton, and very unusual young lady.   She is able to detect, and deal with, curses and other magical phenomenon

Theodosia's father and mother are a museum curator and an archeologist digging in Egypt, respectively.   Although her younger brother Henry is away at  school, Theodosia, with her cat Isis, is left pretty much to her own rather self-sufficient devices.   She has absorbed several ancient languages and a vast body of knowledge about ancient civilizations.   Much of her time is spend fighting the curses on relics sent home by her mother.

Theodosia learns that an organization, the Serpents of Chaos, is bent on world domination through magical and mundane means.   They become her chief opponents, with Grandmother Throckmorton, bent on making Theodosia a  a conventional lady, as a second.   Theodosia eventually meets up with the Brotherhood of Chosen Keepers, opponents to the Serpents, who are astounded that she is so much more capable than they.

Series?!

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.
