The Buried Life by Carrie Patel

Interesting post-apocalyptic murder mystery-slash-political drama, vaguely steampunky. Recommended.

Hoka by Anderson and Dickson

On its face, cute retellings of stories and history using sentient alien teddy bears as main characters. On a moment's reflection, it's about the destruction of local culture by colonists, and even uses the phrase "Earthman's burden", while trying to make it look cute. And the very first female character is introduced breast-first, which counts for at least two strikes with me, by itself. Yech.

It's Superman by Tom De Haven

Aggressively Depression-era retelling of Superman's origin. Different enough from the thousand other retellings to be interesting, and entertaining in its own right. Recommended.

The End Of All Things by John Scalzi

A climax, and probably conclusion, to the Old Man's War universe, with humanity tracking down plots and perfidy in an attempt to survive. Nth in a series, recommended.
