Siglerverse Reading Order

From Siglerpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the stories created by Scott Sigler and a recommended order for reading them.

It is generally accepted and known that the Modern Universe and the GFL Universe are collectively “The Siglerverse” and all stories contained in those groupings are essentially part of the same timeline. However, because the GFL era is about 500 years or more in the future, I’ve put them together in their own grouping. The Non-Siglerverse stories are typically a bunch of independent short stories, or stories that have not yet been tied in to the canon Siglerverse. It also includes the Generations Trilogy.

Some short stories have been published in multiple anthologies, but for simplicity are included only for their publication in the Sigler-produced anthology. Some known stories have placeholders identified. Things such as known sequels or planned projects are identified, and if known, in the proper order.

This list does not include Scott’s work in gaming modules, such as the ASP Technocracy or Shadows of the City.

The Siglerverse timeline is also represented visually and includes both Modern and GFL era.

GFL Siglerverse reading order

By way of a primer, consider listening to the following two introductory podcasts, which may help readers not familiar with the game of American Football. They are certainly not required, and have nothing to do with the GFL story, but they have information about the game itself, which is the ecosystem in which the story germinates.
