Revelation Space Universe

Revelation Space Reading Order

In what order do I read these works? With a little research I was able to map out the Revelation Space reading order.  Some of the years may not be exact, but the chronological order is correct. One short story, “Open and Shut”, has not been included in a collection yet, but is available online (see table below).
