WoW books, novels, comics, and short stories in chronological order

Welcome to HealingWoW’s somewhat Chronological guide to Warcraft novels, comics and short stories. We say somewhat, because there are some stories that refer to past and present events along the timeline, which we have specified alongside the title when we can. This guide is based on the excellent Novel Guide on WoWpedia and we’ve added in all the links to the books or short stories where available.

Some books may or may not be available. The stories that aren’t available are less likely to be an integral part of the overall Warcraft Universe story, so don’t fret if you have to skip it. You may be able to find them at other book stores.

If you believe something is missing, please let us know in the comments below.
