If I remember correctly, someone put this question to Al on FB a few months back and he said they can be read in any order.

 Thanks, all, for your insights. The problem was that I have all of the Orangefield books, but some of the collections and novels and novellas have alternate or expanded editions in paperback, or have extra stories that expand on the original short...it was making my head hurt. As long as the stories aren't all interconnected and heading towards some big shared finale, I'll just dip in and out of the Orangefield mythos in dribs and drabs.

 Thanks again!

I remember really enjoying William Schoell's Spawn of Hell, but I was 14 or so at the time, and I remember nothing about it now except that I enjoyed it.

The last few weeks I've been answering the nostalgic siren song that Grady Hendrix' PAPERBACKS FROM HELL inspired, and picked up a couple hauls of those wondeful Good Ol' pbs from the '80s/'90s horror boom.  No real rhyme and reason to it my selections...just whatever was available at the time and looked like it had a chance to be something I'd actually enjoy reading and not just owning.  I may have one more haul coming, but if not then these two hauls may be it for some time to come, as they're getting tougher and tougher to find as time wears on and inventory churns to more modern books in those mom-and-pop shops (that are themselves getting tougher and tougher to find).

My memory's a little foggy and I haven't read them all, but I do seem to recall it was an "open mythos," so to speak, with no requirement to be read in order.  That said, if you own them all and so don't have to worry about picking up the odd volume(s) to fill in publication gaps, were it me I'd just go ahead and read them in order, just to be safe.

I agree with Adam: I don't recall an order when I was reading them.  Or, if there was, I never felt lost just reading them as I got to them.

We published an Orangefield story here at the Drive-In (complete with artwork from Keith Minnion).  Head over to the "Fiction" section to read it (and the interview I conducted with him).

Not really, as far as I remember. But, I'd read them by publication date just to be safe.

 I dug out my copy of the 2005 Endeavor Press Al Sarrantonio hardcover THE PUMPKIN BOY today, and I was wondering if anyone here could help with a Sarrantonio question: Do his Orangefield stories need to be read in any particular order? I think I own them all, but this is the first time I've dipped my toes into reading any of them.
