Catherynne M. Valente's the Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making
Lexie Dunne's How to Save the World
Blythe Woolston's MARTians (box store service industry slow slide into dystopia/apocalypse.  extra depressing thanks to election, even with hopeful ending)
Michael Wallace's Queen of the Void (nice enough milspec scifi, but milspec scifi writers a suggestion.  there are era's OTHER than Napoleonic Europe and Victorian Colonialism to base your future societys on.  just sayin'.)
Anne Pederson's 1635: the War for the Rhine
Jay M. Gates/Andrew Liptak (ed) War Stories
Karen Diem's Super
