Chronological Lists of Complex, Intersected Series

Bookstore in Florence, Italy, is Warburg’s own work under the CC BY-SA 3.0 or GFDL licenses, via Wikimedia Commons.

There are some series that drive me so mad (I am so very OCD in some respects) that I needed to put together a list (or three!) to keep track of where the short stories fit in and where the interlocking series and subseries intersected chronologically and not in their publication order, ’cause that’s how I like to read them. The individual title links will take you to Goodreads.

The below is the result of my preoccupation. I had been inserting these into the individual book reviews, but I thought this was an easier way to update the lists — it certainly does give the list more room(!) and I imagine that the reviews will also breath easier without the list box crowding its space.

While there aren’t many authors listed here, I’m sure it will grow as I encounter more authors who confuse me with their short stories scattered throughout their novels or that have a variety of series that dip into other series by the same (or another) author. The lists are under the author’s name; click the name of the series to open its listing.

Are there any series with a difficult chronology that drives you mad?

Kate Douglas

Chanku = Wolf Tales + Sexy Beast

This series has always confused the heck out of me. I’m OCD about reading a series in chronological order and Kate Douglas has not made this easy. In spite of the lack of originality in the book titles which are the same as the series and Douglas’ providing the number for a reading order, she’s thrown in a combination of Wolf Tales “shorts” and her Chanku novels. Douglas says that “The stories are tightly linked, so if you’re as nuts about reading a series in order as I am, please read in the order [she has] listed … on her website (or as below *grin*). … the books are tightly connected from one story to the next, and the Chanku novellas are very much a part of the overall story arc.”

The xx.5s are how the books are listed under the Wolf Tales series; the Sexy Beast numbering in the parentheses are how they’re listed in that subseries.

  1. Chanku – First Generation: Wolf Tales
    1. Wolf Tales I

Sherrilyn Kenyon

Dark Hunterverse (DH)

According to Kenyon, the following are all part of the overall Hunterverse. There are some misnumbered entries that will eventually get straightened out; it doesn’t help that Kenyon is inconsistent in how she does number her titles with some short stories being numbered as full volumes and some getting the xx.5 routine. The important thing is that the titles flow one after another.

    1. Terrier
    2. Bloodhound
    3. Mastiff
  2. Song of the Lioness

* Technically, Beka Cooper takes place first in the Tortall series chronologically. It is, however, more independent of the overall series, and I consider it more of a side series that MAY provide more information about George Cooper’s family’s past (he first appears in Song of the Lioness).
