Regular readers may have noticed that I’m a huge fan of the feminist SFF blog Lady Business. If you’ve not heard of them, they review SFF across a range of media–primarily, but not limited to, books. They also discuss industry and fandom news from queer and feminist perspectives. Their work has been nominated for a Hugo Award this year (for Best Fanzine) and their posts often appear in my Loose-leaf Links segment.
So I was thrilled when they offered me a chance to guest post for them… especially since the opportunity arose out of a rare rant of mine on Twitter. I’d been disappointed to find just two Australian authors on a list of 100 SFF books written by women. Lady Business have given me the chance to reply with a list of my own: 50 Australian Women Writers of SFF. I hope you’ll go and check it out.
