Second draft, Fantasy of Manners reading list

Okay, second stab at a reading list for fantasy of manners books. I've broken out mannerpunk, "honorary mentions," and unknowns. As I said in the comments thread to the last post, my personal definition of "fantasy of manners" relies heavily on style. If you disagree with something on here, I'd love to hear why—the more detail, the better—but I reserve the right to be subjective about it.

Quick definition: fantasy of manners = Swordspoint; mannerpunk = Bordertown.

I've added a few things, but only since this morning; there were several other suggestions over at sf.written that I've left off since they'd just go under "unknown."

Thanks for all the input.
