Can these really be read in any order? I remember looking into this before reading The Player of Games, and the answer seemed to be "yes," but I know that sometimes even series you can jump into at just about any point have their minor exceptions.
Here's what I currently own, in what I think is the publication order:
I believe it was Tannat who recommended Excession to me. Would it be okay to read that, having only read The Player of Games before, or should I read Use of Weapons first? Or one of the books I don't yet own?
