Are these all part of one series or does each trilogy or whatever stand alone?

I've read Riftwar, Serpentwar and Empire - each group does stand alone, at least as far as those ones go. The early books are certainly worth reading, and the Empire trilogy was the set I gave away last when I finally purged my bookshelves. Read them in publication order, and stop when you've had enough - the early ones are classics, but they do head into Extruded Fantasy Product territory after a while. Sure, some people develop a taste for gourmet spreadable cheddar... but there are better books out there.

So far I've read them in order too. It is nice to found the characters you grew to know in one series pop up in the next but I still have a long way to go.

I read the Empire Trilogy (with Janny Wurts) and absolutely LOVED it!! It is as dog eared as some of my Pern books!! I haven't read any of the others but maybe some day!!
