This is a list of the published novels set in the fantasy world of Dragonlance, which was originally created as a setting for a role-playing game in the Dungeons & Dragons style. Please refer to the main Dragonlance article for further information.


Adventures in Krynn[edit]

Anthologies[edit]

The Dragonlance short story collections are mainly divided into the two publishing lines Tales and Dragons Anthologies. With most recent collections the dividing line has been somewhat erased. In the following are the short story collections listed in chronological order of their publishing dates.

Tales I[edit]

Tales II[edit]

Although some versions refer to these three books as the Tales II trilogy, others refer to them belonging to the original Tales trilogy, continuing from volume IV (this is because they were originally published as two trilogies and later renumbered as one six-book series).

Dragons Anthologies[edit]

Tales of the Fifth Age[edit]

Tales/Dragons from the War of Souls/World of Krynn[edit]

These three collections are presented as a trilogy by their outer appearance as well as by their title constructions.

Related stories[edit]

The following two books are not part of the Dragonlance series, but rather the Ravenloft series. They are crossovers in which Lord Soth and others are transported from Krynn to the Ravenloft world.

Six novels set in the Spelljammer universe were published by TSR, before TSR was incorporated into Wizards of the Coast. The novels were interconnected and formed "The Cloakmaster Cycle". The novels tell the story of Teldin Moore, a 'groundling' farmer on Krynn who has a powerful and apparently cursed magical cloak that was given to him. The series puts the character on a quest, and showcases the Spelljammer universe.
