Yesterday, Kari Sperring started the hashtag #womentoread on Twitter. Today, she is asking bloggers to write about a woman writer they love. One? One? *mutters* I think I’ll pick 3, instead.
Lazette Gifford is small press and self published, but I really like her books. Her fantasy novels are well written, but her Science Fiction novels are exceptional. I love how they explore cultural differences, tech vs non tech, humans vs non humanoid species. I especially like the fact that they don’t contain any romance.
I have read almost all of Wen Spencer’s novels, and I love them. I love them for the mix of genres, even if technically all of them are science fiction.
Military fantasy at its best. The characters are great, the plot twists fascinating. And… unfortunately out of print. But I encourage you to snatch up a used copy if you stumble upon it.
That said, I took a good look on my autobuy list, and realised that it is almost only female writers. So, I guess I should give some male writers a try.
