I cannot find the ‘order’ of your Mercury Trilogy anywhere. Maybe consider posting this somewhere. Assuming Mercury Falls – Rises – Rests with Swings as a prequel to the trilogy, but would like to confirm this as I like to read a trilogy in sequence.

It goes like this: Falls, Rises, Rests.

“Mercury Begins” takes place before Falls and “Mercury Swings” takes place in between Falls and Rises, but you can read the short stories in any order. Or not at all.
