Diane (diane_d) | 9 comments The series list shows only episodes 1-5 and the first collection. Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episode 6 ([The Heartbeat in the House] — I also wish the titles were shown, for all of them!) and the 2nd collection, Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episodes 4-6, need to be added.
If there's a way I could do such additions myself, please tell me, for future reference.
ETA: There really ought to be an "umbrella" series which would also include the Lost Library books (where the SPI lead also appears — having the full plot-chronological list would be convenient, given "off-screen" allusions in the novellas), as well as the Spirelli Investigations NOVEL[S] Entombed, and the short Bob vs. The Cat.

Diane, you can help us neaten this up and make it more accurate.

1st I ask you to edit your subject and change the folder to series.
2nd read this from the librarian manual re: series to better understand GR guidelines https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/3... (u can skip the 3 numbered sections up top)

If you are familiar with the series you can help set it up by feeding us info on what needs to change. (i.e adding missing books, fix the description or order of books) and we will fix using GR guidelines.

This one https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3... says "season" while all the others say "episode". I wonder why. Do you know why?

Links from the author's website which makes the works included clearer:

Bob vs. the World "a Spirelli ... Story": http://www.katebaray.com/bob-vs-the-w...

Librarians I wonder why the covers are so different than the ones on amazon.

The gold covers are audiobooks on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Spirelli-Paran...
GR listing shows the gold ones as kindles https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Seems like there should be a kindle version and an audio version. Nice juicy can of worms. *yawn* tapping out for now but hopeful someone else will pick up.

Oops, sorry. I may have added tons of books and numerous reviews to my own account, and entered giveaways, but I'm a total newbie on the management side.

1) I was going to ask, "How on earth do I change the folder?" but I see it's part of editing the subject, so Done.
2) "Season 1" = all Spirelli Paranormal Investigations episodes, 1-6, that precede the first novel. Obviously, it also needs to be added to the series list; I hadn't even noticed it.
Ep. 1: The Disappearing Client
Ep. 2: The Forgotten Memories
Ep. 3: The Fleeing Witch
Ep. 4: Something Nasty in the Attic
Ep. 5: The Geolocating Book
Ep. 6: The Heartbeat in the House
Apparently, "Bob vs. the Cat" (first of another planned sub-series in this "universe", Bob vs. the World) is 6.1, or maybe you'd say 6.5, but definitely before Entombed (Spirelli Investigations #1).
3) All I've read are the Spirelli novellas. I don't know how they fit into the Lost Library series-chronology; you'd have to check with Ms. Baray. That's why I said I wished the info were given!

Fellow librarians, As I see it we would have to create alot, maybe 27ish new editions (ACEs & newly created). The current covers aren't on here at all for the paperbacks nor kindle editions and the audiobooks aren't even on GRs. That is so much work. Actually it's too much work. Wish they would auto feed in.

Also the actual titles need to be added to all of them, not just their series name. Done. I have this old post from Rivka regarding how to handle titles that aren't on the cover https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Anyone who wants to, please jump in. I'm not going to add all those books. Just organize/rename what was already in database.
---------------------------------
I changed the titles of the current primary editions. Feel free to fix if I did it wrong. (or comment) It's confusing because there are "episodes" and a "book" both called #1. So, I added either Episode or Book to parenthesis section.

Diane (diane_d) | 9 comments Definitely a lot better than before. Thanks, Corinne.
