With the Delphi Classics, I get the list of novels/stories from their site, and reformat it into plain text, so I can paste it into the comments section.
If I then search for a particular book and it's in one of the Delphi compilations, the compilation will come up because the book is mentioned in the comments.

Hehe. I did it the other way around a few days ago. I downloaded the short stories of one author from Feedbooks.com; there were a lot. None of them except one had a front cover, and they didn't have any descriptions.
I couldn't be bothered to go and fix that bunch up, as I'd probably read them all one after the other. Therefore took off the cover of the one outlier, and stacked them on top of each other in order of publication, using EPUBMerge. Then I fixed where needed (indenting the TOC, and a bit of CSS stuff), created my own cover, and filled out the metadata. Now I have an 800 page anthology. Creating that took less than 10 minutes.
