With space on the library shelves scarce, the characters of your most beloved genres are banding together into gangs to secure their books' places - and their lives.
The little town of Stonewood sits in the forested hills of East Tennessee. Like most towns, it has a public library, and like in most libraries, a strange and entirely invisible war rages.
Gangs centered around major book genres battle one another for space on the shelves. The more books in their area, the better the chance of their own novel being read. Readership determines life or death, so it's every genre for itself.
But if survival alone wasn't enough, genre rivalries and biases leave some gangs not only fighting for shelf space but pushing their own agendas as well - even within their own groups.
Welcome to Shelf Space. Let the war resume.
of the month
Jan. 1 Welcome to 2018! This month's newsletter is short and sweet, but don't let that stop you from reading it.
No special event this month, so let's really use this time to further our gang sub-plots!

Answer: Hi, guest. I understand your point, but yes, you'll have to pick a story. (Or, something that might help you out, is picking a collection of stories, so he has multiple ones to draw from.)
The characters essentially re-enact the story each time it's read. And if, for example, Harry Potter 1 is checked out by Tom and Harry Potter 5 is checked out by Jill, then Harry Potter cannot be in both places at once. Each story is like its own little world, and that includes books in a series.
That said, Harry Potter from Book 1 can have visited all the other books and know what happens. But he doesn't have to have visited any of them. That's up to you to decide. And characters from later in the series will necessarily know what happened in the earlier books because it's written into their memory by the author.
