A little while ago, inspired to dig deeper by some incredibly interesting individuals on my twitter feed, I encountered some fantastic lists of book recommendations that highlight the talents of both women and POC that are creating some top-notch fantasy and science fiction offerings. These folks represent some of the most frequently overlooked, but most original and insightful, creators of our time; though if the more recent spell of Hugo Awards are anything to go by, things are very slowly changing to appreciate them more fully.
I’d like to list a few of my absolute personal favourites first, then I’ll let you sift through the wonderful and very comprehensive lists that have been complied elsewhere. Please join me in celebrating and supporting these wonderful authors. more “Women and POC in Fantasy and Science Fiction”
