Hi all. I read quite a bit, and I'm considering picking up some of the Pathfinder Tales novels.

I was wondering though if there are any story arcs that span multiple books that I should be aware of so I don't start with the wrong books. Or are they all stand alone?

If it is just a matter of chronology I'm not that concerned, unless it has an impact on the story.

None are direct sequels, but you can follow the adventures of Dave Gross' Radovan & Count Varian Jeggare if you follow the above reading list. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Add this month's Queen of Throrns to the end of it as well.

With the exception of Dave Gross's books, which stand alone well but are also linked, all of the Pathfinder Tales novels currently available are 100% standalone, so you can start with whichever one interests you the most.

Thanks for supporting the novel line!

I just read Winter_Born's link, and I will add that Husks is now available as an ePub.

James and the early readers can chime in with their opinions, but I think Queen of Thorns is a pretty good entry point to the adventures of Radovan and the count. You really don't need to have read the previous books nor any of the web fiction to start with this one.

Being one of the early readers, I'd agree. Each of the stories is independent, so reading them out of chronological order is just going back to "Oh, this is where they got Arnisant."

No spoilers, but Dave does a good job of keeping the references to the previous adventures slight enough to keep the mystery when you read the earlier tales. That's always one of the fun things about mystery series, especially since it leaves the option open for the author to go in and do a story set earlier in the chronology.

No Pathfinder Tales novel requires information contained in a previous novel. However, some of us have endeavored to at least track the order in which novels and stories take place. Here's the link.
