Marchverse

Since there’s two different series, a whole heap of additional works, several characters crossing over from one piece to another, and my eschewing of any belief that one should publish in chronological order, here’s how you might read all the works set in the Marchverse if you prefer to start from the earliest piece and work your way up to the latest.

Several of these works are in progress and not yet available to read.

Cover of The Crew of Esher Hill: A Marchverse Serial by K. A. Cook.

Objects sit on top of the book cover: a blue pen with a gold nib dripping ink, a screwed-up piece of white paper, a cream scroll with a green seal, a cream and silver compass, and a piece of rope.

Cover image for K. A. Cook's 'The Unnatural Philosophy of Kit March'.
