The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
The Empress of Mars (Company) - Kage Baker Mary Griffith came to Mars to be a fancy-pants scientist, but when her research looked less than lucrative, the British Arean Company fired her, leaving her stranded on the desolate rock. Luckily, Mary had an indomitable spirit, three beautiful daughters, and knew how to make beer. These assets in hand, she rapidly became the proprietess of the most successful (and only) bar on Mars. But the rulers of Mars are less than pleased with her success, and she'll need every bit of her wit to survive...

Really excellent story, with memorable characters, a twisting, intricately crafted plot, and a highly enjoyable ending.
