    Thanks for this list! I wanted to read the series in chronological order but it’s hard to find lists that organize them and include the comics and short stories. The only issue is Dog Men. It’s after Wild Card, isn’t it? One of the things I’ve seen from it has Harry having a nightmare about Puck, the villain from Wild Card. Unless he’s started having prophetic dreams, Dog Men’s place in this list is wrong.
