The CK series field is sometimes used in a rather strange way.
For instance, the Annika Bengtzon series have a number of one book series due to the way the series field is populated in different language CK. See under related series: http://www.librarything.com/series/Annika+Bengtzon
I don't know if it is on purpose, or the user(s) just not knowing how to use the field.
One of the Kurt Wallander books by Henning Mankell is also entered as a separate series. It is a short story collection where each story is entered as part of the series. There is a series description so this must be on purpose, but is it right?
I generally don't like removing other peoples CK, so I wanted to as the collective wisdom if it would be appropriate to remove/ change the above examples.

A collection of stories is not by itself a series.
A group of short stories may for a series, and may usefully be entered as such if they are published in different places.
I would argue that Kurt Wallander sort fiction could be regarded as a series, but would prefer to see a full Kurt Wallander series with the novels listed and then the short fiction. Are there other short stories?
