I read John Houghton's A Distant Shore a month or so ago, reviewing it for the Christian Fiction website (you can see my full review here). While the book is more allegory than speculative fiction, that allegory is captured in a fairly interesting secondary world. It's well written and addresses some interesting dilemmas. While it's probably of most interest to Christian readers, I think it might appeal to some speculative fiction fans as well. Be prepared for the allegorical nature of the book, of course, and I think you'll enjoy it.
