More About the Novels of Lawrence Watt-Evans

The table below is a list of all the novels to date published under the name Lawrence Watt-Evans, with some basic information about each, and links to the pages about the individual novels, and about the series they're in.

Below that, I'm including a list of book club editions. I'm also working up a list of who did all the cover art, but that's going to go on a separate page.

At one point I talked about including links to reviews of my work, but over the dozen years this webpage has been accumulating, I've discovered that online reviews have a tendency to disappear, and I can't spare the time to keep such a list up to date. Rather than give you a list of largely-dead links, I've abandoned the idea. Sorry about that.

So, beyond what I have here, what would you like to see? Tell me!

Abbreviations used:
  • pb = mass market/rack-sized paperback
  • hc = hardcover
  • lhc = limited-edition hardcover
  • tp = trade paperback
  • eb = e-book
  • om = included in a hardcover omnibus
  • cs = coming soon (i.e., scheduled for publication within a year)

* This was preceded by two different electronic editions: An online serialization of the first draft in 2005, and an appearance of the complete novel in the February 2006 issue of the now-dead webzine Son & Foe.


The table above does not include book club editions, which are generally not first appearance and which are all, to the best of my knowledge, out of print at the moment. Some readers, however, might be interested in knowing what's out there, so here's a list. These were all published by the Science Fiction Book Club.
