Steve Lewis has published a mini-review of Heath Lowry's new book The Shaping of the Ottoman Balkans, 1350-1550: The Conquest, Settlement & Infrastructural Development of Northern Greece. I might comment on the same book here at a later point. Another recent publication: Neval Konuk's Midilli, Rodos, Sakiz ve Istanköy'de Osmanli Mimarisi /Ottoman Architecture in Lesvos, Rhodes, Chios and Kos Islands. According to the author (here, in Turkish), this work (limited to 2000 copies) was based on 1,5 yrs of fieldwork, and presents 30 religious monuments, 19 funerary monuments, 6 fortresses, 5 gov'tal  and 10 educational buildings, 6 hamams, 28 fountains, and 10 mansions.
