You're good. Prolly should have a sticky post. It comes up often, obviously. And that the novels weren't written with some over-arching timeline makes it harder to dig down. Thankfully we have folks 'round here who have sorted it out (and continue to do so). Good luck reading! I've been building my own 'library' so I benefited from this re-visit as well.

Also, the Search feature can be very handy.

Sometimes.

Other times it's shit.
