The chronology is fairly bare bones at the minute, being composed only of the available and forthcoming stories in the mythos.
In the coming months other entries will be added to it, including certain events, such as the Shooter’s Hill Incident, Edwin Drood’s disappearance and the taking of Aylmer Beamish, which are mentioned in the stories above but are not, as yet, recorded.
As new stories are published, they will also be added to this chronology.
