Welcome to Friday, everybody!
This week I’ve been reading a discussion around female authors, particularly in SF&F — how they don’t get talked about as often as men, or reviewed as often. Cheryl Morgan blogs about the (lack of) teaching of women writers in school. If this makes you angry, you might be interested in Ian Sales’s round-up of SF novels that feature only female protagonists (lots more suggestions in the comments).
