Marbury is another world, a dark world that best friends Jack Whitmore and Conner Kirk have fallen into before. A stranger had given Jack a pair of glasses – it's through the lenses that the boys get to Marbury. Told through Conner's point of view, THE KING OF MARBURY asks whether Marbury is only in Jack and Conner's minds, or if it might actually be real. You decide.

Loved this little extra piece of Marbury. I wish it could have been longer, but I really, really enjoyed it.
