Re: Search catalog by Genre-Author?

... A number of our members have created alternate catalogs to access our books. You might try one of those to see if it will generate the list you want. For example, no fancy covers here, but this one will generate a list that you can sort by author. The data only goes up through Oct 2016, but you...

Re: Alpha sort not working for some advanced searches

To expand on Tovarisch's response: The cases where it doesn't seem to be sorted correctly are cases in which individual stories in collections are being returned. In those cases, the alphabetical sort is working on the project title ("book" title, if you will, even though it's not a traditional boo...

Alpha sort not working for some advanced searches

Hi Everyone, I've been experimenting with Advanced Search and have come across a few cases in which the alpha sort by title does not seem to work. Here's an example of one such case: https://librivox.org/search?title=&author=Lester+Del+Rey&reader=&keywords=&genre_id=30&status=all&project_type=either...

Re: Search catalog by Genre-Author?

I"m afraid that's not possible. I can't think of a workaround either... Seems like a pretty arbitrary limitation. Clearly the catalog database is indexed by Author, since you can do an alphabetical search by Author, as in https://librivox.org/search?primary_key=0&search_category=author&search_page=...

Search catalog by Genre-Author?

Hi, There's probably a simple answer to this one, but I haven't been able to stumble across it. I wanted to use the "Advanced Search" to generate a listing of all books for a particular genre (in my case, "Fantastic Fiction > Science Fiction"), sorted by Author. I started by setting the fields as fo...

Re: Catalog Sorting

Hello Alan san, ... should I say "Masa san" or "Masa chan"? Please use 'san'. 'chan' sounds like childish. ... Cheers, Masa Masa san, Sorry, I thought "san" and "chan" were gender references, as in the English "mister" and "miss". This idea is of course based on subtitle translations I see when vie...

Catalog Sorting

Hello, I noticed that when I browsed the catalog by "Genre/Subject" and then "Fantastic Fiction - Science Fiction", there was no way to sort by Author. The default sorting was "Alphabetical" by title. The only other option was "Release Date." It would be helpful if there was a sort by Author option ...
