Description

This article is from the rec.arts.sf.written FAQ, by Evelyn C. Leeper evelynleeper@geocities.com with numerous contributions by others.

19. Steven Brust's "Dragaeran" series? (In what order should I read...)

The Vlad Taltos novels can be read in published order or in chronological
order. Mileage varies on which is preferable.

The published order is:
1. JHEREG
2. YENDI
3. TECKLA
4. TALTOS
5. PHOENIX
6. ATHYRA
7. ORCA
8. DRAGON
9. ISSOLA (July 2001)

The chronological order is:
1. TALTOS
2. YENDI
3. DRAGON
4. JHEREG
5. TECKLA
6. PHOENIX
7. ATHYRA
8. ORCA
9. ISSOLA (July 2001)

According to some, TALTOS, YENDI, DRAGON, and JHEREG are more
stand-alone than the others. However, DRAGON comes both before and
after YENDI in internal chronology and contains spoilers for YENDI.

As noted elsewhere, ISSOLA will be the next Vlad novel.

The Khaavren novels are:

1. THE PHOENIX GUARDS
2. FIVE HUNDRED YEARS AFTER

and take place before the Vlad books. (The forthcoming third (which is a
trilogy), THE VISCOUNT OF ADRILANKHA, will bring the chronology up to
Vlad's time.)

BROKEDOWN PALACE is effectively a stand-alone.
