The Far Side of the World and The Reverse of the Medal by Patrick O'Brian (32, 33) I do love O'Brian's novels, and I've managed to read and re-read about half of them and left the other half deiciously undiscovered. The Reverse of the Medal marks my first step into that undiscovered country.

The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner (34) I keep doling these out sparingly to myself because they're so wonderful, and I can read each of them for the first time only once. This came with a lovely prequel short story that was full of character and charm despite it's brevity. The novel itself was worthy of Dunnett in its complexity and "headology". And, like Dunnett's books, I love some of these characters and appreciate others without liking them, but I find all of them fascinating.

A Sort of Samurai by James Melville (35) A re-read, a case early in the reader's acquaintance with Inspector Tetsuo Otani of the Hyogo Prefectural Police. I wish more of Melville's enjoyable Otani novels were available as e-books; at the moment, only the first three are.
