Added DiffLines:

!!!These books provide examples of:
* ChaosArchitecture: The geography of Daventry is described a bit differently in each book, and in some cases differently than they appear in the games. The scale of Daventry, the continent it is on, and the world is even much larger than other sources suggest. Castle Daventry's layout changes in each book, in particular the thrown room, and entrance/Foyar/hallways leading to it (having a more KQ1SCI inspired appearance in one book, and KQ1AGi inspired in another book). The location of the throne and dais moves to the middle of the throne room in one of the books for whatever reason, with a table set behind it for 'councils' for whatever reason....

Three licensed novels, each starring a different main character from the games. Only the three were ever made; the 2nd and 3rd in the series list it as a "trilogy". Officially licensed by Sierra, but the series had no input from WordOfGod; Roberta Williams is said to have only read them (and there is no indication of any other direct input by any other King's Quest related designers/developers, and only Sierra involvement was in the licensing department/[-InteraAction-] advertising), but perhaps taken as an official licensed WordOfDante.

Some details seem to ignore certain specifics from the games, or even change certain backstories for characters (including Graham's past), but also contains references that appear to be a mix of KQ1/AGI series and KQ1 remake (causing [[ChaosArchitecture]] issues of its own).

This work was written by WordOfGod, Roberta Williams herself, and contains a synopses of every game leading up to KQ6, as well as a short story telling of Alexander's journey and crash on the Isle of the Crown' and the loss of his crew. It appears to contain prototype material, as some details changed with the final KQ6 release.[[http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/The_Magical_World_of_King%27s_Quest ]]

It appears to contain prototype material, as some details changed with the final KQ6 release. Some of the material is essentially a reprint and expansion to Roberta William's summaries in KQ5 Hintbook. Also interesting as the material suggests King's Quest takes place 'centuries' before the present on Earth.[[http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/The_Magical_World_of_King%27s_Quest ]]

Written by Peter Spear, these two books are part walkthrough/hint book, part novelization, and part side stories, with a lot of extra details and backstory not present in the games and made up entirely by the author (technically authors, with input from WordOfGod, according to the book's acknowledgements pages, Peter Spear was technically an editor/co-writer especially in the later editions), which are official, "authorized" status according to WordOfGod, and are often treated WordOfSaintPaul. Some material even made it into the manuals and hintbooks for games of the series, and occasional game (King's Questions), or portions included in compilation collections and Sierra's ''InterAction'' magazine.
