The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
Into the chaos of a prolonged drought step Angel Velasquez—a "water knife"; Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist; and Maria Villarosa, a young migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky: All three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This Del Rey edition of "Tom Paine Maru" was deliberately butcherer by cutting all philosophical and political content at the hands of Del Rey's editors.

Don't support such censorship. I read the Del Rey edition and later found an uncensored version on the web. L. Neil is right they butchered what he wrote

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Michael Valdivielso on August 28, 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Corporal Whitey O'Thraight came from a harsh planet, a planet that sent him, and the rest of the crew, to look for a better planet. But the Asperance's first voyage is its last when just a few hours after landing most of his people are killed by the savages (who are living in their version of the Middle Ages). It seems he has the choice between being burned at the stake or just tortured.
But then he is freed by the crew of the Tom Paine Maru. And then things get dangerous.
A great book, kind of a sequel to The Venus Belt. It can stand alone, all you have to do is read enough of it to get the basic background. Set in The Probability Broach universe, so lots of surprises and a interesting setting.

While set in the Other world of Freedoms and Personal Rights. It will catch you up on the families you first meet in the "The Probability Broach". It will open your mind if you would allow it to, making you look around and say why are we not more like that.

An old favorite by a favorite author. This is book of the North American Confederacy; start with the Probability Broach, the first of this series.

Be warned, the author has a pronounced Libertarian bent. That works for me, but might not for others.

I really don't understand why these haven't been collected in anthologies yet <Yes, Amazon, that's a hint>.
