So, I just finished re-reading all 10 books of "The Malazan Book of the Fallen". In the Epilogue the following happens:
Fiddler is doing what he said to his fellow Bonehunters in the last book: he is playing his fiddle in the Smiley's tavern in Malaz city and goes fishing.
Nothing is said about the empire itself and who is ruling it and what armies still are around to protect the land or even conquer more.
To not spoil too much, of whom we know that they survived, I have to ask the question(s) in spoiler tags, I hope this is ok:
Is Ganoes still the last High Fist of the Host and his sister Tavore the Adjunct or are both or at least Tavore outlawed. Is Laseen still the empress or has Mallick Rel finished his betrayal and took over?
