More About the Novels of Lawrence Watt-Evans

This page is a placeholder, not finished

Okay, I'm honestly not sure what I originally planned for this space, but part of it is below. It's not mobile-friendly; fixing that is somewhere on my "things to do" list.

I also want to have links here to other stuff going into my publishing history in depth, such as:

But what I'd put on this page in 2007 is this:

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. A page for Nathan Archer's tie-in novels is in the works, as well.

At one point I talked about including links to reviews of my work, but over the twenty 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!

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.


That's it; here's your list of handy exits:
