"Ridiculously Long Book Series"
Updated: Jul 8
With a million books published each year, here are a few titles that have ridiculously long lists of books launched with in their respective series. With that being said, we secretly hope for more...
Terry Pratchett, Discworld. Discworld by British author Terry Pratchett. The series bolsters 40 volumes. The first in the series, The Color of Magic published in 1983. Pratchett sales topping 80 million, and was the best seller in the UK prior to JK Rowling. It came as a crushing blow when news broke of the passing of the distinguished author, who has inspired and captivated so many.
L. Frank Baum, Oz Books. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum published 1900. Baum went on to write fourteen novels set in Oz. Baum began to write expansion story lines for his characters with 40 volumes to choose from. The last of his works published one year after his death titled Glinda of OZ.
Piers Anthony, Xanth.
A Spell For a Chameleon by Piers Anthony. The epic fantasy series released 40 volumes. A wonderful tale of exile, and self discovery...did I mention magic? Original published in 1977.
The Riftwar Cycle by Raymond E. Feist
The Magicians Apprentice by Raymond E Feist. The series released 30 volumes. Human magicians open portals between worlds and we follow along utterly grateful its not us! Seriously, I wouldn't survive, but it is an engaging ride to see who will.
Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter by Laurell K. Hamilton
Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton. The necromancer series has released 27 volumes thus far. This series shows no signs of stopping, and thank you for that!
