Translate Series Title
Bujold's Vorkosigan universe in chronological order; novels are designated with full number and short stories with a number and following letter. Omnibuses have been noted with every novel and short story they contain.
Borders of Infinity is not technically a novel, since it consists of a sparse frame story linking three short stories, but merits its own number nonetheless. Its chronological placement is according to the frame story, not the stories therein (which have been noted separately).
I'd advise checking this chronological series very carefully before buying or reading anything. As you can see, the publication history is complicated, and you may find yourself inadvertently buying something twice, or reading out of order if you're not careful.

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.
