You didn't mention mine, Jeremy--Huckleberry Finn In Love and War: The Lost Journals--so I just did. It's available on Amazon and for the Kindle. Mine's the only one I know in which Huck has to deal with the Civil War, but you might also want to check out Finn, by Jon Clinch (about Pap), and Becky, by Lenore Hart. 

To Sam: thanks for the tip about Google alerts.
