Dresden Files Reading Order

What’s on the Dresden Files Reading Order?


The Dresden Files reading order takes all of the books, short stories, and comics from author Jim Butcher, and places them in chronological order. While the main series occurs in the books, there are several short stories and graphic novels that flesh out the story. All of these stories are written by Jim Butcher (sometimes in collaboration).

If you see anything on this timeline that is missing, needs rearranging, or needs any other type of changes, please let us know. We love to get your feedback to help make the site even better than it is.
