Ongoing Series

 

 

Following up on my First in Series post and, again inspired by Moonlight Reader, this post collects all of my currently (as of April 2020) ongoing series; i.e. all series that I have started and neither fully completed nor decided to discontinue.  Like my First in Series post, this is primarily for my own reference, so in order not to have too many sub-series sections I'm combining golden age and noir mysteries into classic crime fiction, ditto both major branches of speculative fiction (sci-fi and fantasy), and my major areas of nonfiction interest (history and biographies / memoirs). -- Wherever I didn't start reading a given series in order, I'm listing book 1 (not crossed out) in addition to the (crossed out) completed books to mark this fact.  By the same token, since I didn't start all of the series with book 1, it makes more sense to me to actually record the books I'v already read rather than the one following next after my respective last read.  Completed (or abandoned) series are moved to a separate post.
