Ok, years ago, I read the Crystal Shard trilogy, and maybe one or two other books with Drizzt, and really enjoyed them. So while unpacking, I realized I had Legend of Drizzt book 1 , and sat down and started reading it.

So yeah, I'm hooked. I'm planning on doing a chronological read through of all the Drizzt stuff, and was wondering if anybody could list, or point me to a complete list of ALL the Drizzt stories in chronological order. That means with any short stories, or original comics (if there are any) slotted in the proper places.

Oh, and has anybody else beside Salavatore done any Drizzt or Drisst related stuff? I'd be interested in those too. Thanks a bunch.

Well, Bob's quite the busy writer and has had something of a tendency to put out at least one Realms novel a year since 1987, so you're not lacking for choice.

Drizzt also appears in the Tymora's Stone trilogy aimed at younger readers and written by R.A. Salvatore's son, Geno Salvatore.

OK cool, thanks a bunch. And I didn't know about the Tymora's Stone books.

Now, I just need to know where to place the short stories into the timeline. And isn't there comics, too? IDW pit them out or something?

My understanding is that the IDW comics are graphic novel variants of the above-listed books.

There are a few stories in the "Collected Stories" that cover events that are glossed over in the main series. "Comrades at Odds" is also featured in Anthology of the Elves, and takes place between Two Swords and The Orc King. I would read "Collected Stories" before Gauntlgrym.

Oh I know about those. But I'm pretty sure there's one or two miniseries that are original stories. Neverwinter Tales, or something? I believe it was a 5 issue mini IDW put out.

And Corellon, I'm going to be reading the short stories one at a time, in their proper place in the timeline, if I can figure out where they all go.

Hey got another question. I'm looking at the Drizzt timeline and it seems like the series just skips right over the Time of Troubles. Are there any stories that take place in between 1358 and 1364, which is when his story seems to pick back up after the Icewind Dale Trilogy.

The Legacy of the Drow (4 books in the series) covers the Time of Troubles. Some of Bob's better books in my opinion.

There's a site that has FR books listed in several ways.
By date of publishing, Reading Order for trilogies, Timeline (Books only).
