Battletech Reading List

Thought I post this here for anyone that wants to see a Chronological order of the Battletech books.

This is a complete listing of BattleTech Novels in the order in which they should be read which is in approximately Chronological order, not when the books were actually published. This will give you a sense of flow for the events of the BattleTech Universe.

I say approximate Chronological order, because some books, or series, cover the events in others. For example, the Jade Phoenix Trilogy actually starts before The Blood of Kerensky series, and ends after it. It is placed where it is because, The Blood of Kerensky Series, while written later, provides background for the Jade Phoenix. (confusing is it not??)
