The SEO advice from Google regarding the matter is to ensure you also have a paginated series available.

If you have rel="canonical" tags on your blogs so that only one is viewed by Google as being the "original", then you'll not be penalised. Not using canonical references is likely to harm your website's SEO.

Both of these ways also allow to target only a specific search ...
