Do I number this obscure SF series by publication order or by internal chronology?

Decreasing order of page count.

Page count divided by ISBN.

By color, of course.

I have this problem with both Lois McMasters Bujold and David Weber. You can sort Weber's Honorverse multiple series in to different series, and that takes care of that, but you really need to read them in publication order to follow the history. And now we have Zahn's series which predates the earliest Weber. *sigh*

Bujold writes whatever Vorkosigan story strikes her fancy, wherever it fits in her arc, and I'm fine with that and will gobble up whatever she produces. Her latest, Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen, is definitely the latest in the series, but some of the prior books were not so linearly slotted.

Did you decide?

Also, the series' internal chronology or one of your own?
