Egan, Greg -- Incandescence

Apparently Egan has always wanted to have written Dragon's Egg. Now he has, but it's not much of a book. To be precise, it's two short stories, one of which is a decent "how does their world work and can they save it?" bit of alienry and one of which is pointless. Padding them out with extra Newton and pasting them together does not add up to a novel, and while Egan must be proud of his tides-not-gravity re-rendering of basic physics, I did not need that many pages of it.
