Bibliography

This bibliography gives a complete list of all published stories set in Jerry Pournelle’s “Future History.” If you want to know the order in which these stories should be read, see the Reading Order page.

This bibliography is divided into three sections:

This bibliography page explains all the book abbreviations used in the Timeline (although these are pretty obvious anyway). I also give information on page numbers, in case you have a different edition and are curious about page numbers cited on this site.


***** ***** *****



CoDominium Stories


This section includes all of Pournelle’s tales of John Christian Falkenberg, and other tales set during the CoDominium. Many of them appeared first as short stories, were collected into small paperbacks in the 1970s, later appeared in large paperbacks, and were finally published in one large hardcover. To indicate which passages are reprints of earlier passages, I have color coded each of the four following sections.

2002. Baen Books / Simon & Schuster hardcover: 1151 pages.
This book is a combination of the four large paperbacks listed above, plus a few pages of new material. It is divided into several sections, each with its own chapter numbering. The section names (which usually, but not always, correspond to the names of the large paperbacks), chapter numbers, and original sources are as follows:

The Prince was intended to be a chronological compilation of all the stories of Falkenberg’s Legion, a goal which it almost achieved. However, the story “He Fell Into a Dark Hole” was omitted, and the arrangement is not quite chronological: for example, on page 290 Senator Grant refers to the Tanith campaign being “finished,” but the Tanith campaign isn’t actually described until the next section. For the best chronological reading order of these stories, see CoDominium Reading Order.

The original draft of The Mote in God’s Eye was significantly longer. The first three sections of the book were deleted, at the suggestion of Robert A. Heinlein. Two of them were later published, as “Motelight” and “Reflex.” The third deleted passage, which focused on Sally in the prison camp, has never been published.

War World Stories


The following bibliography is divided into five color-coded sections, representing five phases of War World publication:
