“Time and time again, we hear: “Women don’t read science fiction. Women don’t write science fiction,” says author A.C. Wise on her blog. So true. I often feel like an exotic and strange animal in the zoo when I tell people I love to read science fiction, especially the classics from 1950-1970s. Even weirder: I’ve started to write stories within the frames of science fiction.
A.C. Wise has now put up a wonderful long list with women authors who’ve made their first speculative sale (pro or otherwise) within the last two years.
I’m honored to be on the list with so many exciting new names. I’m also honoured to be on a list with women speculative authors. It’s well worth taking a closer look at the list if you’re curious about new writer voices (here). Happy reading!
