David Gemmell Novels

 

David Gemmell is by far my favorite author. I have spent years tracking his books down in various used and new bookstores across Canada and the US, and have yet to be terribly disappointed. But no one is without their faults and Gemmell has one really apparent one: the man cannot write in chronological order!

What's worse, that oh so helpful list of previous books published at the front of every novel has never once been right in any of the books I've ever bought. Sometimes they mix up which books belong to which series, or say a book is a stand-alone when it is, really, part of a series. And then there's the Drenai series, published in whatever order he thought them up, but so terribly out of chronological order.

So, sick of these lists, I've made my own, carefully reading each book for the small details that will help me place it in the proper order. I'm not saying I'm right, but I am relatively confident in my results.
