The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal

The Fated Sky (Lady Astronaut, #2)The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I need more stars - five aren't enough.

Kowal completes her Lady Astronaut saga with the first human journey to Mars, in her alt-history of human spaceflight. She weave together a fabulous mix of issues - from race relations to climate denial to ... just read it - I can't begin to describe the blend she has skillfully created here.

I certainly hope this is not the end of this saga - but this is a fine and fitting capstone to the duology!

Oblivion by Michael Jan Friedman

Oblivion (Star Trek: The Next Generation: Stargazer, #4)Oblivion by Michael Jan Friedman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Guinan! A nice backstory for Guinan, and adventure for young Picard. Complicated and good multi-threaded story as Friedman fills in Picard's history as a young captain.
