August - Kabi Set in the same world as November. Biological warfare has wiped out all fertile women and a small number of men have mutated to be able to bear children, including becoming weaker and acquiring some feminine traits. Of course they're immediately coveted and fought over by the normal men, and get stripped of all rights and sent to a "carrier education center" to prepare for a lifetime of child bearing and subservience. This is a very dark work with lots of rapes and nonconsensual situations, though the rapes are not described graphically, but it's also well written and tightly plotted, and with happy endings for enough (not all) of the characters to be satisfying.

The related story, Ivan Kosin, on the author's website, is also very good, and actually not as dark as August.
