Klava with Honey: A Prologue by Steven BrustEdit
Portions of an early version of the Prologue to Dzur were included (along with short stories from two other authors) in a chapbook created for the Buffalo Fantasy League.
This was titled Klava with Honey: A Prologue by Steven Brust, and published by W. Paul Ganley: Publisher and the Buffalo Fantasy League in an edition of about 150 numbered copies, with the first 20 or 30 being dedicated for hard cover binding. Copies, signed by all three contributors, were sold online during early 2006. This is still in print; check out www.ganleybooks.com.
The other stories in this volume are:
- What Sleeps in the Shallows Belongs To the Deep by Julie Czerned
- An Incident at the Luncheon of the Boating Party by Allen M. Steele
The Vlad Short StoriesEdit
A Dream of PassionEdit
Brust wrote a Vlad short story entited "A Dream of Passion" for a convention in 1986. It can be read online. "A Dream of Passion" is set a number of years after the main Vlad cycle, but is no longer considered canon, as Steven Brust has publicly disclaimed it (on the Dragaera mailing list), and it is contradicted in the novels, most notably by the description of how Godslayer comes into Vlad's possession in Issola.
A special e-book offering from Tor online. This chronicles an encounter between Daymar and Telnan, wherein the discovery of Nightslayer is revealed. So far as we know, this story is entirely canonical with the other published Vlad stories.
The Khaavren Romances are a series of "historical fiction" books, attributed to Sir Paarfi of Roundwood, House of Hawk. They follow the adventures of Khaavren and some of his friends as they observe and participate in events that shaped the Empire. They are:
- The Phoenix Guards
- Five Hundred Years After
- The Viscount of Adrilankha, published in three parts as
(The last of these books was originally titled "The Enchantress of Dzur Mountain", and may be listed that way in previous novels as "forthcoming".)
- To Reign in Hell
- The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars
- Cowboy Feng's Space Bar and Grille
- The Gypsy (with Megan Lindholm)
- Freedom and Necessity (with Emma Bull)

All Steven Brust's books are currently in print.

Non-Dragaeran Short StoriesEdit
- "The Man from Shemhaza", in Thieves' World: Enemies of Fortune (This short story was also printed in Year's Best Fantasy 5).
- "Valosag and Elet", in The Sandman Book of Dreams.
- Jhereg - The Graphic Novel, a generally awful retelling of Jhereg with art that makes little (if any) sense. Brust has repeatedly said that it was a big mistake. It should be avoided, although it may be possible to find scans online.
- Dzurlord- A Crossroads Adventure in the World of Steven Brust's Jhereg, a choose-your-own-adventure book published in 1987. The only truly notable thing about this book is the introduction by Brust himself, which contains information about Dragaera, which he has later confimed to be relatively accurate. The introduction can be found here.
