If you are new to the Dragonlance series, the sheer number of novels that have been published is overwhelming. One of the questions we get at the Nexus most often asks what order should someone read the Dragonlance novels. To coincide with the release of our newly revised comprehensive list of novels , I've revised my reading list to help you make sense of it all.

For those that don't want to wait for the explanation, here's my short list (these should be read in the order they appear in the comprehensive list ):

The comprehensive list is divided two ways. The first is by time period, the second is by 'core' and 'supplemental' material. I'll discuss time period first. The Dragonlance saga spans over 9,000 years of Krynn's recorded history, and therefore it was most helpful to split the list by time period. Once that was accomplished, the rest of the Nexus staff and I went through and looked at the various books in each of the time periods and determined which were the most important to the setting.

Dragonlance is a shared universe created by Laura and Tracy Hickman , and expanded by Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis under the direction of TSR, Inc. into a series of popular fantasy novels.

The adventures during that game inspired a series of gaming modules , a series of novels , licensed products such as board games, and lead miniature figures.
