Publication order of book series

leave a comment »

OrderOfBooks.com is a good site for those who are compulsive about reading an author’s work chronologically and is even helpful (but not always accurate) when you want to read a series in order by the chronology of the story. Sometimes the chronology of publication matches the chronology of the story (e.g., in the wonderful Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin series of British Naval novels by Patrick O’Brian), but sometimes (as I explain in this post) the publication order is not the same as the story order: in Charles McCarry‘s series of Paul Christopher novels, The Secret Loves (1977) recounts events that precede The Tears of Autumn (1974) and thus should (IMO) be read after The Miernik Dossier (1973) and before The Tears of Autumn.

But that sort of nonsequential publication is relatively rare, so on the whole OrderOfBooks.com is a handy reference. The links above go to the author pages on that site.
