In what may turn out to be one of the longest fantasy series in recorded history, we present to you the Xanth reading order.

What’s on the Xanth Reading Order?


The Xanth reading order takes all of the Xanth books, by Piers Anthony, and places them in chronological order. Thankfully, despite the fact that there are over 40 books in the series, the timeline is relatively simple, with each book coming chronologically after the next and no short stories or random adaptations to other mediums to worry about.

All of the books were written in order, and there are no tie-in short stories or other works of media. That makes our job a lot easier. Regardless, it can be hard to know where to start with the number of Xanth books out there, so we hope that this timeline helps you grasp everything you need. This series is ongoing, so you will likely see more in the future. Check back for more updates.

As with many of our series, we recommend you start this one at the beginning.

If you liked this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, such as the Dragonriders of Pern timeline. And if you see anything that needs to be added or changed, please let us know!
