The Path to Ascension is followed by The Road to War


  • In The Slayer Dragons the date is given as A.Y. 6902, which is in disagreement with later volumes. The date should properly have been 6903, as he became a Slayer Dragon in A.Y. 6905 as determined by Return of the Dragon and it is known that he completed the Trials in just 2 years. Thus, The Slayer Dragons actually takes place in 6903 and the 6902 date was a mistake.

In The Reunion of the Eighth Power Metanie Bur'I is stated as having been "in highschool" when her marriage was arranged with Jason Bur'I. However, in Dusk from The Concourse to Victory as well as Point of the Spear from The Road to War, she is stated as having been in junior college at the time. Though her marriage was in the process of being arranged while she was still finishing highschool, she was not told of the arrangment and did not meet Jason until her first year of college. Thus, the date given in The Reunion of the Eighth Power is incorrect.


I keep a running log of when each short story was finished and sometimes when it has been edited. Unfortunately, I did not start doing this until after 2005, when The Path to Ascension was finished. Based on my research into file edit time stamps, it appears the original master file was assembled on Friday, February 11, 2005.
