31. Solitaire by Kelley Eskridge.
32. Those Who Walk Away by Patricia Highsmith.
33. The History of the Danes (Gesta Danorum) by Saxo Grammaticus, translation by Peter Fisher, edited by Peter Fisher and Hilda Ellis Davidson.
34. Tehanu by Ursula K. Le Guin.

35. Edge of Our Lives by Mark Rich. Mark is a prolific guy; as his biography states, his printed nonfiction amounts to more than a million words. I'm partial to his fiction, however. Mark is sort of like a Golden Age SF writer, master satirist, and modern poet wrapped up in one package. This volume includes some stories I've seen before, in zines like LCRW and the late, lamented Say...; of these, I'm particularly fond of "Fear of Tall Buildings" and "Swathes of Grass." Other highlights include "Beercan Medusa," "Asleep In the Arms of Ambience," and the title story, about defense AIs who base their emerging personalities on a soap opera, and what happens when that soap opera gets canceled. If this is the first you're hearing of Mark, I encourage you to check out his stuff.
