So you've read all the core books in Dragonlance (Chronicles, Legends, Second Generation, Summer Flame, Dragons of a New Age, War of Souls) and are lost on where to go next? Can't decide which of the other hundred novels are worth reading, or will tell you stories that you want to hear about? You've come to the right place =) These lists aren't complete, but they are certainly good starting points.
A really great resource on this website can be found here, at the official suggested reading list.
So you really like Raistlin. It's ok, even the most bitter fanboy was there once. Someday, you too will grow out of it. For now, though, turn to these books to fill your need.
Brothers In Arms.
Best of Tales 1.
(Please note that there are only _TWO_ volumes in the Raistlin Chronicles, and there is no intent to write a third. None at all. One might even consider Dragons of Autumn Twlight the third Raistlin Chronicle.)
Alright, so you'd rather read more about Tanis, huh? Angsty Brooding Hero has a lot of charm going for him.
Tanis the Shadow Years
Steel and Stone
Any of the Tales 1 books.
All the darkness getting you down? Rather hear about Flint and Tas, the godkings of comic relief?
Flint, the King
Best of Tales 1/2
Of course, you can round out the companions by reading more from the Preludes and Meetings series, and by picking up any of the early Tales short story collections.
But enough of them. You want to read something a little newer, that helps explain the Chaos War.
The Puppet King
The Last Thane
Dragons of Chaos
The Rose and the Skull
What about this Fifth Age stuff? What is going on there?
The Doom Brigade
The Dragon Isles
Legacy of Steel
Spirit of the Wind
Anything a little more modern? This lack of magic scares me.
City of the Lost
The Bertrem's Guides
Amber and Ashes
Ok ok, let's get some more depth to the world.
A Warrior's Journey
The Legend of Huma
Chosen of the Gods
Dalamar the Dark
There's plenty more to choose from, but this is a great place to start. Enjoy the world of dragonlance! It's not as daunting as it first looks =)
