Dresden Files Reading Order

Jim Butcher has written a lot of stuff, but he’s most well known for the wizard detective, Harry Dresden. Experience the series that defined much of modern urban fantasy in chronological order. This is the 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.

Where to Start?

While most of the Dresden stories have self-contained stories, there is a narrative thread that connects them all, so we definitely recommend starting with the first novel Storm Front. The prequel material is fine if you want to read that first, but it’s not necessary.
