A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Adding Novellas/Short Stories to a Series (0.5, 1.5, etc.)

Post by winecellarlibrary »

A lot of authors write short stories and novellas that supplement a series. Currently, the bookshelves does not support anything but whole digit numbers (1, 2, 3...) so I am unable to include these books in the series. Is there a way to fix this (aside from just typing the book number in the Subtitle section)?

For example, Juliet Marillier wrote a novella entitled Twixt Firelight and Water, which is book #5.5 in the Sevenwaters series. Currently, I can only add books 1-6 to this series.
There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!
-Emily Dickinson

Oh, I know!


I've been asking for this since bookshelves were implemented.

The ability to add short stories/novellas to the series (officially) is on the to-do list. Until it's added, including the number in the sub-title field does work. :tiphat:
Authority, when first detecting chaos at its heels, will entertain the vilest schemes to save its orderly facade.
