If you're not going to just listen to them in release order, which has its merits, this is the order I used when I listened to them with my wife: (I've put ones we didn't listen to in [brackets]. I'm sure these are good, but I'm not independently wealthy, so I had to pick and choose.)

I was pretty pleased with this; it preserves most of the spoilers and surprises, but lets you get into a nice groove with a certain lineup for a while instead of jumping around. There a lots of nice connections between the Evelyn and Hex stories, from major (the Forge) to minor (the Galyari).

* Definitely inessential to the ongoing story, but there are some nice resonances.
** Part One of this story actually features Peri and Erimem.
*** If you're just interested in Evelyn primarily, you can end here. If you want to continue following Ace and Hex, their story continues.
**** If you think this seems silly, listen to Project: Nirvana after Black and White.
