    They're reference books. Not novels. Which their section has titled as first word.

    Might be so, but it is extremely helpful for those of us who want to sort our books chronologically and gave us a nice list where we can get the short stories from, so I definitely appreciate it

    Shouldn't "Night of the Dragon" be in WotLK section? If I remember well, it's story is a wrap on things revolving the aftermath of ICC and slightly intro to chars for Cata.

    A healthy chunk (12-20) are the short stories that have been posted up for free on the website, particularly around MoP. A few are manga or comics. There's, without thinking about it too hard, about 15 actual novels.

    Very cool to see these kind of informative posts sometimes.
    Honestly i did not expect that there are that many publishings until now. I've read only ~10 of them.
