I’ve been meaning for a while to put together a bibliography of the sources I’ve used for writing my books. I know that a lot of my readers enjoy learning more about the campaigns after reading the novels and I hope this will be helpful to them. It will also be helpful to me if I need to revisit anything.

This is not a formal academic bibliography, so I’ve not necessarily used academic citations, but have tried to make it as easy as possible to find the sources. Where possible, I’ve included a link either to Amazon or to the source itself if it’s available online. This is an ongoing project and I’ll be adding to it regularly. If anybody is aware of a book or a source which they think might be of interest, please e-mail or message me with the details.
