Importing Series information into Calibre

Ok, I have figured out how to pull in the series name from the file name into Calibre. The file name is 'John Sandborn - Prey 1 - Rules Of Prey'. I import this string in (I turned off searching the file for metadata and reversed and added Series. Hence 'Title - Series - Author' becomes 'Author - Series - Title') and it fills the Series box with 'Prey 1' and the Book number stays at 1.00.

There must be a way, other than to add a hypen between the Series - Book Number I.E. 'prey - 1', to pull in the series number. Especially since we can't seem to get librarything to play well with Calibre. Anybody have any ideas?

Can we change where Calibre searchs from Librarything to Amazon or some other site?

This regex works for this title. Just place it in Preferences - Adding books.

Code:
^((?P<author>([^\-_0-9]+)(?=\s*-\s*)(?!\s*-\s*[0-9.]+)|\b))(\s*-\s*)?((?P<series>[^0-9\-]+)(\s*-\s*)?(?P<series_index>[0-9.]+)\s*-\s*)?(?P<title>[^\-_0-9]+)
