Working your way up to Greyhawk, Ant, or just avoiding its erratic sprawl as long as possible?
These guides are great! Thanks very much for doing them.

Back to Lankhmar: which collections would I need to have a complete book of these stories? I've capitalized on recent publications of Robert E Howard in several volumes (one for Kull, Solomon Kane, and Conan; others for his various short stories without a particular focus; still need Bran Mac Morn). I'd really like to have basically the same sort of thing but for Lankhmar.
I'm seeing collections, but I'd like to focus on one or two volumes to get as many as I can. For preference, in the order they were written by Leiber, rather than another editor's post-mortem decision of some sort of chronology. Not that they were or weren't written in an order (Conan tales weren't), but it can be fun to see an Author's style develop as they write.
A Moorcock collection would also be great.
I would suggest, btw, a Conan collector's guide. There are quite a few comics, of course, and various non-howard authors (of varying quality, as far as I can tell; no one's captured him as well as howard, though Busiek is doing as good a job as can be done of staying true to the original spirit of the stories).
I don't know if it's of interest to you, just suggesting for a future project.
Thanks for this btw. And good luck with the Greyhawk stuff. I'd really like a good understanding of it, in terms of understanding D&D itself. Not my favourite setting, more of a respect for it as a part of the shared history, but some really neat stuff has been done with it.
Big topic, though. No envy for you!MY FICTION: The first ever posted fan fiction for Numenera! Sword of Aeon (link: http://ninthworldhub.com/profiles/bl...of-aeon-part-1

Fantasy Masterworks line. I don't think those present the stories in the order they were written, but then I don't think any of the available collections present them in that order .
