Given the jumbled personal chronology in the series, it seems strange to talk about order, but I absolutely agree that there is a lot to be gained in reading them in order. Many references are made to things that happened in earlier volumes. Even so, I am sure I missed a whole lot along the way, stretching the reading of the series out over a decade or more. That's why I intend to go back and read them again, now that I am familiar with the overall arc -- or am I (that postmodern stuff)?
