The Iron Breed: The Iron Cage / Breed to Come
The Iron Cage: Johnny has always loved and been protected by the People, bearlike inhabitants of the planet he calls home. When a human starship arrives, intending to exploit the People, Johnny must choose between loyalty to the creatures he considers family and his desire to connect with his long-lost human heritage.

Breed to Come: Humans polluted the Earth and departed, leaving their pets behind on a blasted world. From that devastated past, a new breed of intelligence arose: the felinoid People. Now humans have returned, but the People are in no mood to deal once again with the creatures who abandoned them so long ago.

Long Earth #2: The Long War
A generation after the events of The Long Earth, humanity has spread across the new worlds opened up by Stepping, and fleets of airships link the stepwise Americas with trade and culture. A new 'America', called Valhalla, is emerging more than a million steps from Datum Earth, mirroring the core values of colonial America - and growing dissatisfied with Datum government control. Meanwhile, the Long Earth is suffused by the song of the trolls, graceful hive-mind humanoids, but the trolls are beginning to react to humanity's thoughtless exploitation. Joshua, now a married man, is summoned by Lobsang to deal with a growing crisis that threatens to plunge the Long Earth into a war unlike any mankind has waged before.
