Just got around to trying this to build a list of missing series (using the Clip board).
The creation of (missing) Empty books works Great but some data was not available.

Some questions:
How to merge non-included/incomplete data?
ex. Nomads of Gor (1969) ISBN 0-7592-5445-1
I can trap all fields shown:

the date 1969 is not acceptable to Calibre (failed to show up in Published), it needs to be 1/1/1969
I need to pad a fake MM/DD/

The Author name, series name, is not available,
I would like to force it: John Norman and Gor

The series index is not available, but is implied by the position in the list (first is 1)

BTW I am snagging series info off of the Wikipedia page for the Author
