I counted 78 out of the hundred that I have read books by, even if not always the specific works named. Of the list, I would say that they definitely missed several authors I would have subbed in , including Norton and Brackett. I was impressed to see Mary Shelley and Charlotte Perkins Gilman included, given Gilman’s checkered history in the field. I was surprised to see Nalini Singh’s book included, as I would call that series urban fantasy romance, with the emphasis on romance. Each book in that series has a new couple finding love. More thoughts later on the list and who they left out. And why some of the authors are totally awesome (and not just the usual suspects).
Tanith Lee is technically Appendix N as well (via Andrew J. Offutt), don’t forget.
Really interested in your take on this as my familiarity with sff diminishes rapidly starting with 1977. Heh.
Thanks for being interested in my thoughts. I always appreciated that in Brad Torgersen, before he got so pushed and angry. I still loved The Chaplain’s War, and thought it should have had a better reception than it did.
I feel internet famous.
Looking at that list…it has a lot of great books by great writers, but it also looks slapped together. I think it’s entirely possible the list creator didn’t realize any of those writers are women.
I like the comment to the effect of, “dude, what’s up with including James Tiptree!? This is supposed to be about the wimmenz!!!”
