The Simple Deep Space Nine Reading Lists are just my
subjective versions of several condensed suggested reading lists,
depending on the number of books you might want to get. Below are the
top ten, twenty, thirty, forty, and fifty Deep Space Nine novels you should read.
Note that there is an omnibus, Twist of Fate, which includes Avatar, Books 1 and 2, Section 31: Abyss, Gateways: Demons of Air and Darkness, and that novel's concluding short story, "Horn and Ivory". There is also an omnibus, These Haunted Seas, which collects the first two novels in the Mission: Gamma series.
