---> A few personal musings...
Keeping TSK as the overall title: good. Keeps the reader aware that it's 
the same universe, even if not the same arc.
Grace River: bad. I feel it annoying me for religious reasons (sounds a 
bit *too* christian too me). Besides, as Elvi pointed, it could be 
anything but fantasy.
TWGW: cool title! Keep it!

Ah, the joys of title giving... ;-)
