Clarke published a collection of short stories set in the same sort of alternate universe back in 2006; I haven't read it but it's on my list. I enjoyed Strange & Norrell, but the ending felt a little lackluster compared to the rich detail in the rest of the novel.

I'm usually disappointed by endings, though.

Also on my list: The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.
"And we are all told from the moment we open our eyes, that everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Well, thatís horsepuckey, of course. We are not entitled to our opinions; we are entitled to our informed opinions. Without research, without background, without understanding, itís nothing. Itís just bibble-babble. Itís like a fart in a wind tunnel, folks." --Harlan Ellison
