Mallory vs. Mallory's Oracle et al.

Ran into an issue while cataloguing. The Mysterious Press back in 2007-08 commissioned some popular mystery series authors to write short biographical profiles of their characters, which they bound and printed as chapbooks- each one had a hardcover limited edition and a paperback one. I have one of these- Mallory by Carol O'Connell. Though this is a separate work- these are not word for word from any particular book- it has been impossible for me to separate it out from the first three books in the series. Looking at the work page for Mallory's Oracle, the first book in the series, it lists Mallory as an alternate title for the first three books. MP did not purchase ISBNs for the paperback ones- I don't know about the hardcover. Is there any way to fix this?

I got yours out and combined with the 2 existing ones already out: https://www.librarything.com/work/12294456

Let me look at the other novels. :)

I do not see any merged in there... Are you sure that there are any stuck under the second and third book?

>2 AnnieMod: Thanks so much. In answer to your question- I'm not sure. When I originally looked into this, the work page for Mallory's Oracle under series relationships had Is Contained In mentioning the first three books with the chapbook.

>3 leennnadine: All 3 now say:
Belongs to Series
Mallory

Is contained in
Mallory's Oracle / Stone Angel / Dead Famous by Carol O'Connell

Which is correct so all looks fine.
