Series description

This was apparently first written as a four-book series. It has since been expanded. It is told as a memoir by Titus Pullus aged 61, three years after retiring as Camp Prefect. It chronicles his adventures with his best friend, Vibius Domitius, both drafted into the 10th legion in 61 BC/BCE.

Originally Marching with Caesar: Conquest of Gaul was both the first written and the first in a series.  Later a prequel: Marching With Caesar®-Birth of the 10th Legion was added.  The Triumph of Caesar is an alternate history which has as its premise that Julius Caesar heed the warnings about going ago the Senate, avoided assassination, and departed the next day as planned to fight Parthia.   So successful is he that he ends up fighting Japan.

A Comment from the author, downloaded 4/30/2014 from Amazon.com, Marching with Caesar: Conquest of Gaul:
I am a 54 year old retired Infantry Marine, born and raised in Texas and currently living on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. I have been writing since my first novel, written at the age of 10, when my friends and yours truly fought off the Soviet hordes, who just happened to pick my block to launch their invasion. That was their big mistake. But like a lot of dreams, it got sidetracked until recently, when I decided to focus my passion on an era and subject that interested me a great deal. Like my characters in Ancient Rome, I have served as the pointy tip of the spear of our nation's policy, and it is with this perspective that I tell the story of Titus Pullus and his friends. This is my first published novel, and is the first in a completed four-book series that covers the career of Titus Pullus.

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.
