Women SF meme

This is based on the Periodic Table of Women SF writers.

Bold the women by whom you own books (I’m assuming this includes books or magazines edited by people who are not fiction writers).
Italicize those by whom you’ve read something (short stories count)
*Star those you don’t recognize

My count is 38 but lots of names I don't recognise but that's partly because I don't remember names easily. I've read an enormous amount of short fiction recently so my count is bound to be higher in reality

I'm boycotting that on the basis of it not being a proper periodic table, or even a feeble attempt at same. It's just a one-dimensional list laid out in the (very) approximate form of a periodic table, for goodness's sake, they could have tried a bit harder.

(And in other news, I seem to be in Gah! commenting mode at the moment, sorry about that!)

Not at all. I thought they could have tried a lot harder with their table, and perhaps had a few more Non-American writers who actually write SF, unlike Rowling.

Margaret Atwood? But she doesn't write SF. When she does, it isn't SF, because it's proper writing. Or something like that.

Yet, no Justina Robson.

Anyway, I've not heard of far too many of these. That may reflect my deeply decayed reading habits rather than any insignificance of the authors concerned.

Liked the periodic table. As for making a list However I often can't recall the names of the authors whose work I read.
