Becky Chambers, The Long Way To A Small, Angry, Planet. I'd never heard of it until someone on Ravelry recommended it; I checked it out from the library and liked it so much that I'll buy my own copy. It’s not a book for people who want tight action-filled plots; it’s a more meandering story, character- and setting-focused, though there is an overarching storyline -- a spaceship with a motley crew travels the long way around to install a gate through space in a troubled system. It hits some of the same notes for me that Janet Kagan’s Hellspark did -- glimpses of interesting cultures and how people handle various culture clashes.
