The Far Pavilions by MM Kaye

I'm still going to be like the little train that could and keep plugging away at it until you're all so sick of me nominating it you'll vote for it (those who haven't read it have no idea what you're missing) :p :o :)

Paul Waters' "Of Merchants & Heroes"

I was very impressed with this novel, set in the ancient Mediterranean.
