Women in SF&F Month Banner Coming Soon: Women in SF&F Month

After all the discussion recently about review coverage of women writing science fiction and fantasy and the female bloggers writing about these genres, I decided to dedicate the month of April to the women of science fiction and fantasy.

This trilogy follows the path of a near-future United States–and by extension, […]
