Jamie Sheffield (jamiesheffield) | 2 comments Hello,

I'm Jamie Sheffield, and the numbering of my Tyler Cunningham series is apparently confusing some people, so in an effort to disambiguate things, I was hoping that a librarian here at GoodReads could get things in line with how my books are numbered on Amazon.

The Titles/subtitles/numbers should be as follows:

Here Be Monsters (Tyler Cunningham Book 1)
Caretakers (Tyler Cunningham Book 2)

Fair Play (Tyler Cunningham Shorts 1)
Bound for Home (Tyler Cunningham Shorts 2)
Mickey Slips (Tyler Cunningham Shorts 3)
Promises to Keep (Tyler Cunningham Shorts 4)

The Weaving (A Tyler Cunningham Shorts Collection)

I think that numbering/listing them in this manner will eliminate the confusion. Thanks for your help!

For short stories set in the same universe as full-length books, we use fractions. If you tell me the chronological order that the books should be read in, I can number them accordingly. I'm guessing that from the way they were ordered here on Goodreads, it's probably

Bound for Home (#0.5)
Fair Play (#0.6)
Here Be Monsters (#1)
Mickey Slips (#1.5)
Caretakers (#2)
Promises to Keep (#2.5)

If I'm right about that, then we would number The Weaving as (#0.5, 0.6, 1.5, 2.5)

Jamie Sheffield (jamiesheffield) | 2 comments That is exactly correct, and a very clever numbering schema ... thanks!
