Yes, same Pamela Dean.
I'd like to join this year's general chorus of love for The Goblin Emperor. The hero is such a decent man, and the culture feels really realised. My other favourite thing published this year is Pyramids of London by Andrea K Host, sort of pagan clockpunk urban fantasy, with a middle aged woman protagonist, and flying horses made of wind, and leafed cats, and all sorts of good stuff.

I thought some of you might appreciate it and so, for this group, I have made the ebook FREE this Sunday (the 5th) through Thursday (the 9th). It's called LOGIC'S EMPORIUM OF STOLEN MEMORIES. You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/Logics-Emporium-Stolen-Memories-Natelson-ebook/dp/B00RN8RXQQ/ If anyone from this group has trouble getting it, or sees this email late, I'd be happy to send you a free e-copy.

I found the beginning of the first book a little difficult the first time I read it, since she purposefully uses rather Shakespearean language for part of it, but that gets much easier as you get used to it (and it's not pervasive anyway).
