Paula S (paula_s) | 54 comments I'm not sure I'm asking this in the right place, but here goes:

The Chinese author Cao Xueqin has only written one (long) story, but the different editions are not combined.

At least the Swedish translation Drömmar om röda gemak (five book series)
could be combined with the English The story of the Stone (also five boo k series). I think that if book 1 in Swedish translation is combined with book1 in the English version (and so on with book 2 etc) that would solve the problem?

Removed the Swedish series. No separated series should be created for a different language when the numbering is the same. I added the Swedish series title to the English 5-volume-series description. (On the series page, the default edition shows).
