Paul Harmon (thesaint08d) | 81 comments There are multiple issues with Sergei Lukyanenko's Night watch series especially the 5th New watch #5 which connects to Night Watch #1 and the series link on Night watch etc. I know give ISBN etc but they are multiple problems and a quick look should make them obvious.

Empress (the_empress) Link to series for any other librarian looking at this: https://www.goodreads.com/series/42178

I don't understand the request.

Nina | 426 comments I've been looking at it and my head is about to explode! (no offence though!) I think it's easier for a librarian who masters Russian to deal with it.

I'm currently working on connecting all editions in one profile (So if whoever is doing any edits, please wait till I finish).

But what is wrong with the series I don't understand?

Empress (the_empress) Okay all the profiles I have checked and moved books are the ones that I have found spellings for:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Do you guys know of any more?

Edit: I'm gonna do some combining now and try to fix some of the series.

Paul Harmon (thesaint08d) | 81 comments Little confused why all the listings in series that said "Night Watch #* " in English are all now in Russian.
There are English versions, The Night Watch link can be in English as well as Russian

0..."


If the series name is also mentioned in the title of the English edition, it shows in English, in some places. But the "main" series is in Russian and that shows in most places. And IMO it should be in Russian.

Because there were 3 duplciate series. Since the series are originally published in Russian that is the one series I have left. The page combines all the books. There is no need of two addition english series.

After a couple of hours I still don't see the series problem? Apart from two books that were wrongly combined cannot understand the original issue. This is the only thing I can come up with: is this in the same universe or not? https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7...

Empress (the_empress) That's it. I've done what I could. Created some series, added some books, re-combined some.

there are some left that I cannot figure out with what I should combine, but I'm not sure if all Sergei's books are actually in the database.

If anyone wants to check for the editions in languages they speak, please do.

Paul Harmon (thesaint08d) | 81 comments Originally New Watch book 5 Linked to (when clicked on) took you to Night Watch book 1 and Book 1's links were not working properly as it didnt link to the series but only itself. Those are fixed now and thank you.

In other words to simplify(haha) when you clicked On Book five it took you to book one but you couldnt click on the series link for book one as it took you to a page with nothing but book one and not the series

Oh that was just a one book series page, that got deleted.

Oh, been there, done that! :D
It's okay, I just assumed the editions were wrongly combined and couldn't see anything like that (apart from two books). I was hoping another librarian will spot any problems I am not seeing. I sometimes don't get English people are saying 0:)


Glad I helped. :)
Hope you have a good sleep.
