I hope this list will help someone who wants to read the stories in publication order.

Awesome list.

For clarity sake, I would note [comic] following a comic title.

Also, you have Ender's Game:Battle School #5, and Ender's Shadow:Battle School #6, but no ES:BS #5.

I actually didn't know about "Earth Unaware". A prequel novel could be quite interesting. I look forward to reading it.

The only one you're missing is "Ender in Exile".

Here is an Ender timeline I'm working on. It is based off of the one currently on Wikipedia. Let me know what you think, if there needs to be changes, thoughts on level of canon, etc. The short story "Ender's Game" is not included.

Well this is awesome.
100% agreed. Color coding is great. Great way to show the different mediums. I didn't look too closely at title order but it didn't look off to me from what I recall.

Great job!

Well, I learned something new from this. I had no idea that there was a SftD comic.

The only thing that I could think of was that Ender's Game was also a short story as well. But, I agree with the rest, pretty sweet chart.
