I just read Mary Robinette Kowall's Lady Astronaut novels, set in the same world as her award-winning short story. It kept me turning the pages past my bedtime. It was meticulously researched for the most part, though I had a few questions, and at least one thread/question wasn't tied off to my satisfaction. No idea if she plans any more in that world.

As of a day or two ago, word is she wrapped the third book in the series, with plans for a fourth.

I don't think she's been mentioned before, but for those who like their fantasy light and based in legend, and sometimes a little bit of a tough pill to swallow, Catherynne Valente is superb. I would start with her book 'Deathless'.
