About this wiki and this pageEdit

This wiki is aiming to one day contain all there is to know about the Malazan World created by Steven Erikson and Ian C. Esslemont. If you are a new reader, this means that there is a lot of information which you have not yet come across. This page is designed to help you find those parts of the Malazan Wiki which you can safely access without coming across spoilers. As with all these things though... we are human and so cannot one hundred percent guarantee this.

Spoiler avoidance tipsEdit

Do NOT use Google but use this page as starting point. If on laptop/desktop set to high zoom level so that it is easier to scroll down carefully and you do not get the entire page on your screen at once. Do not look past headers of books you have not yet read - anywhere on this Wiki. Don't hover over blanked out lines.

Reading OrderEdit

Check out the Suggested reading order page for suggestions in which order to read the books. The lay-out of this page follows the published order, with the Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Erikson first, followed by Esslemont's Novels of the Malazan Empire. This order is also used to display information on the majority of character pages. Where there is a deviation, it should be marked on the page.

Chapter SummariesEdit

We are still working on the chapter summaries, however, many are already available. When you click on a highlighted chapter link in the relevant info box, there should be no information which goes beyond it. If you click on links within those summaries however, they may take you outside of the safe zone. For an overview on how far the summaries have progressed or if you would like to take on a chapter, visit the 'Adopt a chapter' page.

Pages which are spoiler friendlyEdit

Eye-open

Safe

Eye-close

Unsafe

We are in the process of vetting pages for displaying content in a spoiler friendly way and will mark those that pass with an open eye symbol (Eye-open) in the Dramatis Personae listings or on the page itself in the top right corner. That does not mean that there are no spoilers. What it means is that all spoiler content is displayed in the order in which it appears in the books and thus it is up to you not to read beyond that.

What's onEdit

Visit Dujek's Command Tent for a quick update on what is happening around the Wiki, tips about editing and other general info. The page itself should be spoiler free. Links may lead to pages containing spoilers.
