Timelines of Witch World

An image from the web ~ source unknown

This is a culmination of years of work by Elwher (see: note) and his associates Mike Brenner aka: Indagare, Jay Demetrick aka: Metaldragon and Jay Watts aka: Lotsawatts. The main theme is a timeline for the happenings within the Witch World Universe by Andre Norton. There are multiple versions of the timeline available which allows one to see the places where continuity got a little confused.

By the time Andre had finished “The Magestone” in 1996 the Witch World Universe had gotten so big that she commissioned Juanita Coulson to create an index for the universe [seen here] so that she (Andre) could write “The Warding of Witch World”. Juanita’s work is more of a dictionary and does not try to tie all the stories together. The link [Coulson’s Index] on a page will take you to that entry within her dictionary.

This work is more of an encyclopedia of Witch World. It defines the people, places and events of the Witch World Universe and explains how it all fits together. It also discusses where things do not seem to fit. This is a massive amount of work which I would never have attempted by myself. It consists of a hundred seventy plus pages on the wiki platform. Here on this site we attempt to tie it all together with the other works we have accumilated over the years. Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress; therefore some things may be a little confusing or seem redundant. The data from wikidots was captured on 03/30/2019. We will update the pages as often as possible and post the most recent date on each page.

When you click on titles or names within this document you will be taken to pages about the story and how it fits into the timeline. You will also find hyperlinks to related documents on this site. We have changed the order and format of the wikidot work somewhat to better fit this site. Comments by the Webmaster will be identified as such and links to other documents on this site will be bracketed as [such].

We hope you enjoy and find it both interesting and useful. ~ Jay Watts

Note: The Sorcerer Elwher seems to have disappeared. His last contribution at elwher.wikidots.com was in 2013, Metaldragon and Indagare are the ones expanding the wikidot site and I have obtained permission from both to duplicate their work on this site. On occasion we do try to reach Elwher to get permission to use his real name.
