This is a list of all of the full-length Star Wars novels to date, in chronological order of when the stories take place. The timeline is divided into seven basic time periods (defined for maximum clarity, these eras may not perfectly match the official ones from LucasBooks). This list does not include young adult and intermediate reader books, eBook exclusives, or short novellas (for a list including those, see Wookieepedia's Timeline of Books).

*The Clone Wars novels, which were written to tie in to The Clone Wars movie and TV series, do not yet fit into the timeline of the other novels set between Episodes II and III. They internally appear to be set during the first year after Episode II, but their timeline placement (and the placement of the other novels between Episodes II and III) could change with eventual attempts to reconcile the two parallel storylines.
