Re: Ender's Game and related series

I haven't done this, but what I did the last time I read all the books was read ALL of the stories (including the short stories) in chronological order, so I read Ender's Shadow right after Ender's game.

I split it up into 5 sections - before the war, ender's war, after the war, rise of the hegemon, and ender's future. this is how it ended up looking

01 Before the War
01 - Mazer in Prison (Short Story)
02 - The Polish Boy (Short Story)
03 - Teacher's Pest (Short Story)
04 - Pretty Boy (Short Story)
05 - Cheater (Short Story)

02 Ender's War
01 - Ender's Game (Novel)
02 - Ender's Game (Short Story)
03 - Ender's Stocking (Short Story)
04 - A War of Gifts (Short Story)
05 - Ender's Shadow (Novel)

03 After the War
01 - Ender's Homecoming (Short Story)
02 - Ender in Exile (Novel)
03 - A Young Man with Prospects (Short Story)
04 - Ender in Flight (Short Story)
05 - The Gold Bug (Short Story)

04 Rise of the Hegemon
01 - Shadow of the Hegemon (Novel)
02 - Shadow Puppets (Novel)
03 - Shadow of the Giant (Novel)

05 Ender's Future
01 - Investment Counselor (Short Story)
02 - Speaker for the Dead (Novel))
03 - Xenocide (Novel)
04 - Children of the Mind (Novel)

I have the comics I haven't read them yet tho
