100 Great Science Fiction Stories by Women
Ian Sales has compiled a list of 100 great SF stories by women, and posted them on his blog. You can find it here. From his post:
The point of the exercise was to demonstrate that women have been writing good science fiction since the beginnings of the genre – a point signally ignored by the table of contents of the 1978 anthology 100 Great Science Fiction Short Stories, which contained only five stories by women.
Mr. Sales has credibility for this project based on SF Mistressworks, his project to compile reviews of SF novels written by women. It is a great resource, AND one of the stories on the list is, “Scorched Supper on New Niger,” by Suzy Charnas. Congrats to Ms. Charnas for the honor, and thanks to Mr. Sales for creating this resource for SF readers.
