Hi folks,

after years of collecting, I finally think that I have accumulated every novel of the realms there is on my shelf. But some old doubts creep back into my mind: Are the lists I used to track my progress actually complete?

Mostly I stuck to the fandom wiki (link below for reference).
Some of the mentioned novels are listed as having been released as ebook only, so I didn't mind them any further in my efforts. But in some cases I have doubts (sometimes backed up by obscure product listings somewhere else on the web).

I would be immensely greatful if anyone here (you, maybe?) could point
out if any of the following novels were actually released as a paperback ever. Or if they are aware of any novels that are missing on the fandom wikipedia.

Here goes the list:
Cold Steel and Secrets - Rosemary Jones - 2011
Prince of Ravens - Richard Baker - 2012
Shadowbane - Erik Scott de Bie - 2011 (ESPECIALLY DOUBTFUL!)
Shadowbane: Eye of Justice - Erik Scott de Bie - 2012
Spider and Stone - Jaleigh Johnson - 2012
Sword of the Gods: Spinner of Lies - Bruce R. Cordell - 2011

Your help is so appreciated!

Hi George,

thank you for the reply.
Maybe I phrased my question ambiguously, so please let me clarify: I am aware that the mentioned books are available digitally. What I want to make sure of is that none of these ever had a printed copy, else my shelf collection of novels wouldn't be as complete as I'd like to think it is.
Or put differently: I'm trying to verify that there are no books out there that I neglected to hunt down because I didn't know about them.


I'm with you on this one. Love the look of my paperback Realms book collection. Sadly I had to buy a few e-books as that was the only option.

IIRC even all of the 4 (?) parts together are only half as long as the average FR novel

Thank you, that makes sense. It is indeed a pity indeed!

AFAIK it's paperback fel victim to the bankruptcy of TSR and the takeover of WotC. Somewhere in this process it was forgotten.

For years I dreamed about a cache of printed paperbacks that was produced and then forgotten in an old warehouse, but no luck.

A paperback version never existed :(

Thank you guys.
With my confidence restored I now can bask in the presence of my bookshelf with the warm feeling of a long journey coming to an end. ;)

Only one challenge remains: Out of 285 realms novels to date, there are still many that I didn't read yet...

Ebook only. The release of Shadowbane was actually what made me break down and buy a Kindle lol. I still buy physical books, but my Kindle has certainly come in handy.

There are no printed books out there.

They were all released as e-books and I believe are still available on Amazon.
