How many books are there and what are they called? Any suggestions on how to get copies of them?

I'm a bit curious about the story behind the game. I picked up two books a couple weeks ago in a trade.

Mostly for my own sake. Books and other literature concerning the Dragon Dice™ world:

Cast of Fate - Available cheap used. A full book.
Army of the Dead - Heard it's really bad. Don't know where to get a copy.
Time of the Champions - Never published? Never written?

Heart of Stone and Flame - Is this the right name?
The Tome of Tarvanehl
Dragon Dice™ Commanders Manual

CORE RPG - Being released soon.

Army of the Dead: horrible book. Author self published it (I think).
http://www.amazon.com/Army-Dead-Dragon-Dice-Series/dp/0786906529

Time of the Champions: never written as far as I can tell.

Chill Wind: great fan written book. Still available for Kindle or Paperback.
http://www.amazon.com/Chill-Wind-Esfah-Vigilance-Cyrean-ebook/dp/B005YS9Q30

There were two booklets of lore that came in original TSR expansion products. Those are found in Battle Grounds (Heart of Stone and Flame) and Dragon Shields (The Tome of Tarvanehl).

Also, in the original Interplay Dragon Dice™ game there was a video that gave an introduction to Esfah.

Can I put in my plug for Chill Wind as the best Dragon Dice™ book ever written? It actually takes the rules of the game seriously, even when some artistic license is called for. (No Undead practicing archery.) My disclaimer is that Joe is a friend, and that the first introduction some readers had to the book was in a serialized form on my old web site.

I should also note that the book/story spawned a long-running online "Chill Wind Campaign" back in the day when we played via AOL IM on the honor system. A few old CWC players are still on this forum. (If "The plitting Torgs mrached through the sw2amps" makes sense to you, then you're one of them.)
