A year ago, I decided to balance the scales and devote 2014 to reading 18 books by female science fiction and fantasy authors. In 2012 and 2013, the ratio of male to female authors on my reading lists was about 2:1. You can check out my previous series of blog posts for the details:
- Reading retrospective (what I read in 2012 and 2013)
- Why I avoided reading female authors (for many years)
- 2014: Year of the Female SFF Author (my goals for this year)
