Courtney (canadiangirlcb) | 704 comments A page is needed for the "World Soccer Legend Series".

The book I'm looking off of is :

Stars of the World cup by Illugi Jökulsson and Björn Thor Sigbjörnsson (Björn needs his name added to the book page, as well, please). ISBN: 9780789212115
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

The back of the book states:
"Other books in the World Soccer Legends series:

Please create a series page and add these books. The covers on the book page all share the series symbol (the little soccer ball with text around it), which confirms what the back of the book says.

Empress (the_empress) This looks like an imprint, not a series to me.

The book had it listed as a series, like I said. I don't know how you'd designate it as one or the other though.

I get series like, say, Hunger Games where it's the same author, and the story continued.

But there's Goosebumps, which is the same author but the books aren't really connected other than being his horror stories.

This is one author writing about soccer topics, so it kind of fits the goosebumps idea of a series, I guess.

How would you decide if it's an imprint?

lethe | 13732 comments Non-fiction series are always tricky. But in this case they are written by one author, on one subject and specifically for children. The books look the same and I don't think they will appear in other, non-series editions. I vote yes. But maybe rivka needs to give the final verdict.

These are the key points, and I agree.

I don't decide anything, I stated an opinion and bumped the thread so other librarians would take a look as well.

I was just wondering, since you thought it was one. I think Lethe and Rivka helped answer the question a bit.


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6678 comments I added all of these. I left them unnumbered, but that can be changed if indeed it is a numbered series.

lethe | 13732 comments Wow Elizabeth. Great!

lethe | 13732 comments I've merged the author profile without the umlaut with the correct one and added Björn Thor Sigbjörnsson to Stars of the World Cup: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6678 comments Thanks, Lethe - I thought I'd overlooked something in the request.

I didn't seen any numbers on the book when looking at it, and there's no particular order to them from what I can tell.

Thanks so much!!
