Post Exploration fiction
Inspired by my reading Thompson's This thing of darkness, and a conversation with Susan, should there be, and, indeed, are there, any more novels about, based on fact, say, about those naval men involved with exploration, as opposed to fighting?

I guess Dan Simmons' novel The Terror is one that fits the category. I can't remember if you managed to read it or not. As I noted in the book thread, Simmons did a good job weaving fact and fantastic elements together.

I think there are a lot of interesting stories lurking in the accounts of the various voyages of discovery.
