DRH8 is a multiverse? whatever gives you that idea? i never got that 
impression whatever -- all they ever talk about are worlds that they're 
posted on for various reasons. the camerati, i mean, coming from other 
worlds. i still think that DRH8 and hexwood are the most likely two to 
actually be in the same universe. =)

i get the impression (not reading her intro, i don't own minor arcana, so i 
can't) that it's more thematic pre-work than implying that it's supposed to 
be another story in the chrestomanci multiverse.
