Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Book Lists

Science Fiction by Women Writers

Science Fiction by Women Writers

After admiring several lists devoted to women science fiction writers, Jim Harris and Mike Jorgensen created the Science Fiction by Women Writers list to statistically show the most remembered books. Harris and Jorgensen used the same sources (1949-2016) they used to assemble the Classics of Science Fiction list to create the women's list, setting the criteria to books being on 4 or more of the 65 source lists. The results are 98 titles, very close to a Top 100 list. Visit The Classics of Science Fiction website for the source lists and essays.
