|Merging the books|

Is there a guide somewhere to combine the last several Weber and Flint books into a single linear superbook?

Welcome to the forums Colin. Hope you have fun around here.
And yes there sort of is, but the books dont quite line up into a super book. they are sort of offset, so there are some interlaps. Someone had made it about a month or so back, but its buried in the forums past now, probably about 6 or so pages back.
Anyone remember the thread, or how they linked?
its not paranoia if its justified...

I believe what he means is which chapters of which book in order creating one monster book.

I don't remember seeing a complete list. I do remember the discussion, and I posted one month of my chapter-by-chapter consolidated list with an offer to post the whole thing, but nobody took me up on it. If someone did post the entire consolidated list I'd certainly like to see it - I'm sure my list hasn't synched things exactly right.
Here's one month:
SoF-17 . . Mobius . . May Massacre. They send a message to Spindle via Montana on a courier that’s checking on possible trade in Montanan beef.
MoH-41.1 . Mesa . . . Detweiller gives out the plan for the next steps.
MoH-41.2 . Manticore Elizabeth III prepares for disaster footing.
MoH-42. . .Trevor’s Star President Pritchert leads peace effort through Trevor's Star.
MoH-43. . .Manticore Real peace conference, briefing, final handshake agreement, Haven will supply fleet to reinforce Manticore against Filaretta.
ART-10.1 . Manticore .Peace conference.
ART-10.2 . Beowulf . .News of the alliance and reasons reaches Beowulf Central Intelligence, the Director of Central Intelligence briefs the Chairman.
ART-11 . . Manticore 7 days after arrival, Elizabeth and Eloise finish the draft treaty to be submitted to Parliament and Congress. The debate begins.

<Ugh, John, "MoH-42. . .Trevor’s Star President Pritchert leads peace effort through Trevor's Star," should have been "MoH-42. . .Haven’s President Pritchert leads peace effort through Trevor's Star." Your point a lot happens fast but, you neglected the reason; the spies' and defector's report that the Mesaian Alignment is the main enemy, the one sending the nanite assassins and, thus prompting the Grand Alliance in a short period of time.>

I forgot to mention that the notes on each date were written to jog my memory of what was going on in a chapter, not for general consumption. If I was going to dump it somewhere, like on one of the Wikis, I'd expect an edit frenzy (or at least a couple of edits.)

Weber Consolidated Timeline - By John Roth
NOTE - this was originally done for my own purposes; a lot of the notes on each date/chapter may not mean a whole lot to anyone other than myself. I'm also not all that sure of some of the alignments - there's one month that appears, at least at first glance, to be about 7 weeks long when you put the books together.
The formatting in my original is in sort-of-nice columns, unfortunately HTML collapses runs of spaces, so the columns that isolate where each chapter is located got smashed in with the rest of the stuff.
1 pd = 2103 ce Prometheus leaves Solar System (generation ship)
305 - cryogenic hybernation
3xx pd - cryogenic ships
725 pd - first crude hyperdrive
731 pd - hyper log
775 pd - Jason departs Sol system for Manticore system (cryogenic sublight ship)
1246 pd - impeller drive (Beowulf) (energy siphon effect)
1276 - Warshawski Sail (sail provides power from inside a grav wave.)
1384 pd - intertial compensator
1416 pd - Jason arrives at Manticore.
1447 pd - first wormhole junction discovered (or is just the first wormhole?)
1502 pd - countergravity generator (Anderson Shipbuilding, New Glasgow)
1581 pd - internal gravity for ships with internal compensators.
1585 pd - Manticore Wormhole Junction discovered.
Note - dates from SoS (Shadow of Saganami) are from infodump.thefifthimperium.com. some of these may actually be from AAC.
