200 Significant SF Books by Women, 1984-2001
In 2013 David G. Hartwell, senior editor at Tor/Forge Books, was asked to come up with a list of "major books of science fiction written by women over the period 1984 to 2001." The list he came up with is restricted to novels and single author collections and includes most of the nominees and winners of the major awards during the period but is not limited to them, nor does it include every last one. Every book here appeared on some "best of the year" or award nomination list.
You can see the original list over on The New York Review of Science Ficiton website.
The books are grouped by year of original publication and sorted by author name and then book title.
