Just noticed that the series numbers don't match from Free Fall onwards on the list

Free Fall shows as 16.6 but says book 16.5
Headed for Trouble as 16.5 but says book 17

lethe | 13729 comments Corrected to 16.6 and 16.5 respectively, and Do or Die to 17. Not sure where The Way of the Warrior belongs in the chronology, her website isn't clear on that, so I left it at 17.5 for now.

Paraphrodite | 318 comments Hi,

Should Headed for Trouble be book 17 and Do or Die be 18, according to the author's website?

lethe | 13729 comments On GR, full numbers are reserved for single, full-length works. Headed for Trouble is an anthology of short stories, that's why the fractioned number.

lethe | 13729 comments I did a search, but I only found this thread that says we don't always go by the author's numbering (in this case because it's a novella):

Maybe I'm wrong about the anthology numbering. Can somebody please weigh in?

Fractional numbering and being non-primary series elements go together, actually. And both would generally apply to a novella (whether it is part of an anthology or published alone).
