    I think that the world of Krynn works well as a stage to play in it but, although I respect the work of Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman as authors, the novels do not offer anything interesting and do not seem very well written to me.
    I would add the only caveat being the original Dragonlance novels, because there's no other books I've ever read that reads so much like an actual D&D adventure with somewhat uncooperative players. Just read them for nostalgia, and then make the setting your own, in other words.

    I enjoyed the Legend of Huma. Thought it and Kaz the Minotaur were the best.

    I was guessing around 120. I read about two dozen or so. _Weasel's Luck_ is my personal favorite. The short story that ran in Dragon, and then later in an anthology, about Tasslehoff and Demogorgon is a lot of fun too.

    I think _Dragons of Summer Flame_ is the latest in in-world chronology that I read while the later Hickman Weiss extra stories of the Chronicles era were the last that I read as far as publishing date. I've read the 3e Campaign Setting book cover to cover though so I am familiar with the Age of Mortals and post big dragon era.

    It's been so long since I've opened the boxes that I decided to check what I have here.

    That's about 100 unique books, so a lot less than I thought.

    But that's not all of them. For example, I know I have Hammer and the Axe, and The Covenant of the Forge, but can't find them. I have a box or two in storage with more books (most of those are different versions, but the missing novels have to be there too).

    So, add to that all the young reader books (none of which I own).

    Edit: I also can't find either Destiny or Alliances, or any of the four books in the Anvil of Time series.

    I always liked how magic worked. Red, black and white wizards, each devoted to a different god. Just something I thought was unique.

    Is it really "vanilla"? Sure, it's pseudo-medieval fantasy, but it has dragons you can ride. That was a significant difference from Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, Tolkien, et al., to me.
