Jon Auerbach | 12 comments Hi,

Can you please add Guild of Tokens: Origins to the series https://www.goodreads.com/series/2668... as Book 0?

Can you also please remove both Trainee and Enforcer from that same series (they are currently books 0.5 and 1.5)?

Thank you!

Scott | 16460 comments Added #0. Why would we remove the others, as it is on the covers and the plot description clearly marks them as part of the series as well.


message 3: by Jon (new)

Jon Auerbach | 12 comments Because they are short stories that are included in the book 0. Thanks!

They should still remain as part of the series, but a note can be added to the record to indicate that book #0 includes those short stories. It's not an uncommon situation :)

Jon Auerbach | 12 comments I would prefer that they be removed, to avoid clutter and confusion, if that is OK. Thank you!

Sorry, we can't remove them.

Origins is of novella length. So it should actually be book #0.5.

If it comprises Trainee and Enforcer, I would renumber those as #0.5A and #0.5B (and move them to the end of the series list).

Is it possible then to delete the existing series and create a new series, with Origins as book 0.5 and Guild of Tokens as book 1?

Goodreads does not delete valid book information, including that of out-of-print editions. Those books are part of the series, so they stay.
