There is a reason I’ve always used such an odd title for the novel entries.
Each title is preceded by two codes. The first four characters are the Bantam entry number for the novels I made 15 years (or so) ago. The Bantam number, and where needed, a letter signifying the book is part of a double or omnibus.
The next five characters are the month and year the original was published. (Or season where applicable.)
In Movabletype I could easily hide the code when publishing the title. I’m working on learning to do that now that I use Wordpress.
It will all make better sense when I reformat all my lists for the new design…
