The Aubrey-Maturin books are going to have to compress themselves in time to work out. I just finished the sixth, The Fortune of War, which takes place during the War of 1812. That makes it, uh, 1812. The first book in the series starts in the year 1800. The nineteenth and penultimate book, The Hundred Days, must take place during Napoleon's Hundred Days in 1815. That means 14 books in three years.
