    Fantastic chronology, it’ll help in my future re-reads. I appreciate this

  2. Wren Jackson says:

    Very much appreciated. Any chance on a date layout for Recluce Tales? We can figure em out by context for the most part, but just for completion?

  3. R. Hamilton says:

    Great to have this official and including new material, thanks!

    Seconded that Recluce universe short stories would be a welcome addition…if there are any relatively quiet spare days for that sort of thing. 🙂

  4. Hanneke says:

    Thank you for the listing!

  5. Dave says:

    The year listed for Ordermaster is clearly wrong.

    1. No, actually the date for Wellspring of Chaos was wrong. I’ve corrected it. Thank you [and damn the typos].

  6. Matthew Runyon says:

    I love it, thank you so much!

  7. John Prigent says:

    It’s good to know what’s coming! But alas, I have multiple medical problems and am unlikly to live long enough to read even the first new book.

  8. Tom says:

    Thank you. Very useful in many ways.

  9. Rosemary Hill says:

    Thank you – I have been trying to sort this for years so as happy as a pig in muck.

  10. Darcherd says:

    LEM, any chance of seeing something similar for the Imager books?

    1. Not for a while; I’m tied up for a bit.

    This SAGA OF RECLUCE CHRONOLOGY needs to be posted to the website so it is available to everyone, i.e. not confined to the questions and answers section for June 6, 2023. (I know that I had great difficulty in finding this updated chronology.)

    Note. I own ebook copies of the entire series and will be preordering the three new ebooks coming out starting in 2024.

  12. Mike L says:

    Been reading since I was in Middle School. Thank you for this and the recent humble bundle so that after 20 years my dad and I can enjoy them together! (Him for the first time and me rereading for the first time in a long time.)

  13. Julius says:

    Thank you for the is updated chronology of the series. I had no idea new books were. It would be great to fill in the gaps after Nolan’s story as to how things progress. Was hoping to learn about the first druids. I’ve loved this series for years and will continue to love it.

  14. Monisha says:

    Thank you for the chronology’s super helpful
    Totally love your books

  15. Marion Chambers says:

    I am soooooo grateful for this timeline! Started reading/rereading this series and hate the jumping around in time and the losing of a character like Lerris for several books which are chronologically out of order!!!

  16. Charles Putnam says:

    I am currently rereading Arms-Commander. A character from Lornth told Saryn that Lorn the Magnificent lived about one thousand years ago. The timeline provided indicates that Lorn lived only 400 years previously. What gives? Also could one of the future Aliakal books include a map of Candar with the boundaries and cities of Cyador. Thank you.

    1. So far as the timeline goes, I sometimes make mistakes. I didn’t formally write out the earlier chronology of the timeline until after I wrote Arms-Commander. But the timeline on the website is actually correct. Of course, I could say that those informing Saryn were exaggerating, but I goofed.

      As I’ve noted elsewhere, I have tried to get Tor to include updated maps, but given the copyright limitations, and because my personal maps are quite detailed and quite large, that would require getting an artist to redraft them, and that additional expense is not feasible, according to Tor management.
