At present the John Grimes series order is confusing and everywhere we look there's a different ordering and/or organization to the list

I suspect in ISFDB the main series, Rim World, should be renamed to "John Grimes" as the Rim World part only covers the latter third of the series.

Commodore John Grimes (series)

The Commodore John Grimes sub-series was published by Ace Books and probably should be renamed "Commodore John Grimes: Ace Books". It lays the stories out as:

  • The Road to The Rim / The Hard Way Up (ordering of sub-stories is not correct as ISFDB does not have page numbers)
    • The Wandering Buoy (1970) shortstory
    • The Mountain Movers (1971) novelette
    • What You Know (1971) novelette
    • The Sleeping Beauty (1970) novelette
    • With Good Intentions (1972) shortstory
    • The Tin Messiah (1972) shortstory
    • The Subtracter (1972) novelette
  • The Inheritors / Gateway to Never (ordering of sub-stories is not correct as ISFDB does not have page numbers)
    • The Inheritors
    • Gateway to Never
    • The Dark Dimensions (1971)
    • The Dark Dimensions / The Rim Gods (OMNIBUS)
    • The Rim Gods (1968) novelette
    • The Bird-Brained Navigator (1968) novelette
    • Last Dreamer (1968) novelette
    • The Tin Fishes (1968) shortfiction
  • Into the Alternate Universe / Contraband from Otherspace
    • Into the Alternate Universe (1964)
    • Contraband from Otherspace (1967)
  • The Commodore at Sea / Spartan Planet
    • The Commodore at Sea (1971)
    • Spaetan Planet (1969)
  • The Rim of Space / The Ship from Outside
    • The Rim of Space (1958)
    • The Ship From Outside (1963)
