Is this a valid entry? I found it under Alexander McCall Smith, who neither has a book in the collection nor edits for Everyman's. I added the list of actual books included -- and they are separate books, btw -- but wasn't about to add 100 author names, so if it is a valid title, what to do about the author/s? Thanks!

This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments Quite possibly. If Everyman's is actually selling this as a complete set and using that ISBN to designate the set, it is a valid entry. As for the authors, I think this is a case where it's just not worth adding them (the max authors is only about 30 anyway, so you could never add the whole list).

Is it valid? Yes.

Can we add all one hundred authors? I don't think it's possible, and I'm surely not volunteering, even if it were!

I vote for "Various" in this case.
