Sisters are Doing It . . . - Archieved Post

On, May and June celebrate women writers in SF, Horror and Fantasy. To raise the awareness of women writers of speculative fiction, I will, in addition to my regular posts, be reading and reviewing a number of works by female authors.

Over the next two months you can look forward to reading about these works; from Angry Robot I’ll be reviewing (and giving away!) The Alchemist of Souls by Anne Lyle. I’ll also be reading Suited by Jo Anderton, Vn by Madeline Ashby and Obsidian and Blood by Aliette de Boddard.

From Solaris, I’ll be reading Darkening Skies by Juliet McKenna and Besieged by Rowena Cory Daniels.

From the small press arena, DAW and the classics, I’ll be reading The Legend of False Dreaming by Toiya Kristen Finley, From Dark Places by Emma Newman, Cyrus Darian and the Technomicron by Raven Dane and Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire.

Among the classics I am reading is Memoirs of a Space Woman by Naomi Mitchison. Which reminds me, for those of you who attended Eastercon, Caroline Mullan delivered a great talk on Naomi. If anyone knows how to contact Caroline (I would like to reproduce a copy of her talk) please contact me.

And for now, keep singing Sisters are doing it for themselves . . .
