  • The Collected Fictions of Jorge Luis Borges.
  • David Drake's RCN series.
  • Tobias Buckell's Xenowealth series (consisting so far of a bunch of short stories and the novels Crystal Rain, Ragamuffin, and Sly Mongoose).


  • A bunch of books on the nature of historical research.
  • A bunch of books about WW1 naval topics.
  • A bunch of books about the Romans, especially the end of the Roman Empire.
  • A bunch of books about the Greeks, especially the Wars with Persia, the Peloponessian War, and the transition from the Hellenic to the Hellenistic age.
