Please can someone tell me the correct order to read these books in, and how many there were altogether ?

It fascinates me how so many people are forgiving of what she did to Nora Roberts. Readers see the end results, and maybe not all care where the ideas really came from, but writing is labor intensive. Whether JD stole because of stress or because of a shortcut, she still was benefiting from the fruits of someone else's labor.
Romance novels will never be taken seriously if the "fans" use an excuse that they're all alike anyhow. Unless we treat the work as art, and as intellectual property, we can't expect mainstream respect.
I grew-up on JD, back when she was doing the Harlequin thing, but when I read something, I want to give credit where credit is due; I want to know the name on the book reflects the real writer.
We all have accomplishments that fill us with pride, and nobody deserves someone else taking undue credit for those things, nor do we deserve other people to act like it's no bid deal, mostly because they're personally uneffected.

I so agree that she should make it into a movie/tv series...and fallow the book as much as possible for script and setting... I hated reading until I started reading the Calder series...I fell in love with the characters.

I've read 7 of the Calder Series and it was wonderful. There are 9 books in the series with #8 out now and the 9th is supposed to be out this summer.
This saga would make a wonderful mini-series

My facts came from Nora herself. If you want to read what was always had aaid, look under nora roberts and janet dailey plagerism case. A link will come up, and the facts, not fiction, are there. Beleive me, I was very shocked when I found out it was Janet who did this. I have always adored Janet and I never said I hadn't forgiven her.I wouldn't have ever read another book of hers if so. And, I read what it was also, and I disagree. But, then I don't want to argue about this ok.

Cat...I am curious as to what your "facts" are. I know that the only plagerism that was made public was with the one book of Nora Roberts (sorry I can't remember the title), as they gave the name of both books in the newspaper and on television. If there were other cases of plagerism, it was not made public. Have you read the sentences that were "plagerized?" Believe me...they were not word for word. Actually, it all happened several years ago and needs to be forgotten and let her go on with her life. She is a fantastic writer and should be recognized as such.

How many books are in the Calder series and would you list them in order?
Dee posts on 2/16/2006 11:06:02 AM
Thanks, for getting back to me. I had already printed out your list Thanks.
My question is I have the hardcover This Calder Range. It says Voume#2 as I want to read them in order what is Volume 1? Publisher is Pocket Books. That's where I'm confused. Yes I thought I would hit Goodwill and a few places also.
