Carolyn Ives Gilman recommends

Tomb of the Fathers (2010)
(Lydia Duluth Adventure)
Eleanor Arnason
"Fair warning: don't open this book unless you're prepared to spend the next few hours in a world of Marxist aliens, sentient spacesuits, topsy turvy gender relations, and eyes-glued-to-the-page adventure. Eleanor Arnason writes fast-paced space drama riddled with wry humor and social commentary. Heavens, it's tasty."

The Waterdancer's World (2016)
L Timmel Duchamp
"This passionate book explores the interdependence of art and oppression on a vividly colonial world."
