Originally under the Pocket Books imprint of Simon & Schuster, most titles were then published under Simon Pulse division. The list of licensed novels also includes publications from Dark Horse Comics, Scholastic, Penguin Young Readers Group, Titan Books, Insight Editions, and Quirk Books.
With the exception of miniseries, there is no sequence in relation to one novel to another. The publication order does not follow any chronology of events as well. Each book acts like a story to happen in various chronological places of the television series, although with nonexistent or dubious canonical value.
