    a sequence of

    'a sequence of novels that will cover the period
    from 1968 to the present'
    I wonder what this 'a sequence of' means.
    Are they a series of novels dealing with the
    same subject?
    e.g.
    The Footsteps of Tal, Vol. 1 (1968 - 1980)
    The Footsteps of Tal, Vol. 2 (1981 - 2000)
    The Footsteps of Tal, Vol. 3 (2001 - 2007)
    Thank you.

    Re: a sequence of

    Yes; it's be a series of novels normally with the same characters, etc. You'll aklso see the term 'roman fleuve' used. Here's an example:
