Longitude - A Great Adventure Book Resource

I just finished reading the stupendously entertaining book of historical fiction, Tomorrow the World: In which Cadet Otto Prohaska Carries the Habsburg Empire's Civilizing Mission to the Entirely Unreceptive Peoples of Africa and Oceania (The Otto Prohaska Novels) by John Biggins. While doing some fact-checking for my Amazon review (See all 318 reviews), I stumbled across a fabulous travel and adventure book website called Longitude.

Self-described as: "Think of us as a bookstore organized geographically. We've got expert book and map recommendations, featuring hard-to-find maps, field guides, classic accounts of exploration, travel narratives, books on art and archaeology, novels, essays and well-written academic books. Turn to Longitude whenever you travel."

One section has a wonderful selection of mysteries set around the globe. Mysteries. They offer their Best of 2008 (including Twenty Chickens for a Saddle!!)
