  1. My favorite is still Entropic Quest. I love that story. It’s one of those stories that the ideas and characters linger… Thanks for providing this list Tom. I was trying to figure out which came first… Now I can start working through it.


  2. Hi Tom,
    I am chomping at the bit to start on your stories. I just want to verify this is not just the order in which they were written, but the order in which they should be read as well. I do not know which of these are related, or which are part of a series (other than perhaps Snapdragon Alley and Dragon Town). That sort of ordering might be very helpful to new readers in addition to the chronology.

    Thanks Tom!
