Book: Powers by Ursula LeGuin

Nebula winner in 2009. A slave is freed, then has adventures. Live in forest for a while, then with his original people in a marsh.

Book: A Dog in a Hat by Joe Parkin

A story of bike racing in Europe in the late 80s. A great, if not always convincing, series of anecdotes.

Book: Shadowbridge by Gregory Frost

Fantasy, metafiction. An interesting idea: A mostly water-covered world with stretches (spirals) of bridges on which people live. Oddly reminiscent of William Gibson's Bay Bridge colony. This is book 1 of 2. I'll read #2, but the ending of this one was slightly sour tasting.
