As you may know, The Skiffy and Fanty Show, my magic podcast, is running a new theme throughout 2015: women and non-binary in sf/f. Given that most of what I read ends up on that show in some form or another and that I set a goal to review 50 books this year, I’m going to follow suit.
And so, the following changes will take effect as of today:
- For all of 2015, I will primarily review books by women or non-gendered individuals (or other variations therein). Exceptions will be made here or there for certain writers whose work I simply adore. What I read:
- Science fiction and fantasy (or anything that is vaguely fantastic; I appreciate what might be called “literary” fiction with a fantastic flourish)
- Novels marketed for adults, young adults, or middle grade readers (the latter two categories are never sent to me for some reason)
- Short fiction
- Other types of work will also be considered if they are related to sf/f in some way (biographies, academic books, essay collections, etc.).
