I haven't read _Swordspoint_... Actually, I haven't
read anything else by either of them.  I should
definitely look into that.  My impression is that
_Swordspoint_ is the same world as _The Fall of the
Kings_ but that they're set in different time periods,
so _The Fall of the Kings_ is not a direct sequel? 
Though I could be wrong... Hmm.  Hopefully I'll read
it soon and can explain better then.  Glad to hear
that you liked it -- it inspires me to track it down
sooner rather than later.
