Women of Genre Fiction Challenge 2013

The wonderful website Worlds Without End (which I just discovered, btw) is hosting a year long Women of Genre Fiction Challenge. They have already aggregated a list of women authors and their books, so choosing who and what you want to read is super easy. All you have to do is register on their website, go to the challenge page, and then click check the 12 authors you want to read over the course of the year. They’re doing one book by one of your chosen authors per month. If you review the book and post a link to your review, you’ll be entered into a drawing for Amazon gift cards. This seems like a great, low-key challenge, and the fact that they already have a list for you to choose from is nice. I’m sure not every female author in genre fiction is represented, but there is a decent mix and I’m especially happy they included women of color. I’ve decided to read the following authors (but I haven’t decided on what books yet):

  1. Marion Zimmer Bradley  Women of Genre Fiction
  2. Poppy Z. Brite
  3. Octavia E. Butler
  4. Angela Carter
  5. C.J. Cherryh
  6. Tananarive Due
  7. Hiromi Goto
  8. Naolo Hopkinson
  9. Caitlín R. Kiernan
  10. Ursula K. Le Guin
  11. Karen Lord
  12. Bharati Mukherjee

On the whole this seems like a great website for genre fiction, in particular SF/F and I’m glad they decided to follow me on twitter! Click on the badge above and check them out!
