There's really no benefit to it but also no real downside. Could be interesting.

If I were so inclined, I'd go with this order.

But I think publication order is probably better.

Oh hey I helped write that, back in the day.

Although upon review I'm not sure I still stand by all the dates, but if I were to revise that I'd likely start over from scratch.

I am kind of curious where @Nostromo got some of his dates. Do the Titan books or Marvel comics provide hard dates? I haven't read many of those.

What would you change?

I'd probably shuffle some dates around and try to do a more critical analysis of things like "apparent technology levels" and stuff like that. Like there are some things that you can slot in nearly anywhere on the timeline after a certain point - when do "Glass Corridor", "Wraith", or the framing story in "Stalker" take place? What about stuff like "Reapers" or "Taste", which provide no human context whatsoever?

The RPG provides some hints based on its internal timeline and what it references, something that didn't exist when SM and I first worked on it 20-odd years ago.

Hey guys, from all the lists I found, that one was the BEST, great work man. I'll see where I found the others from and will post them all here.

PS> Found some here, but yours was the icing on the cake lol. Again, great work. I liked that you had some of the obscure ones in there.
