Once again,

You have likely changed what field find similar books searches in
Preferences->Searching to something other than series, change it back
and you will be fine.

Hi Kovid - My apologies - as you predicted, it is fixed.
I didn't think to check the section or change it because I had never opened it! I am truly sorry - had I modified it, I would have though to change it back, but I never even opened the Searching section. I am embarrassed to have been stumped by something so simple...truly sorry.
Thank you again.
