Reading list: "Fake Writer Girls" -- Women Science Fiction Writers
A list (and notes) compiled from those admired by author Jim C. Hines in his sarcastic blog post: http://www.jimchines.com/2013/10/fake-writer-girls/
This reading list shows a book from each author but they have written more.
by Jaime Lee Moyer
Note: Wrote a perfectly good book about vengeful ghosts, then ruined it with relationships and romance!
by Seanan McGuire
Note: Prolific and popular. Stole multiple spots on the NYT Bestsellers List from deserving boy authors.
by Nalo Hopkinson
Note: Her first book was Brown Girl in the Ring. Yeah, right. Call me when you write Brown Alpha Male in the Ring, amirite?
by Elizabeth Bear
Note: Not only does she sneak relationship-cooties into her work, I’ve even seen her brag about doing it!
by Laura Anne Gilman
Note: Sure, she’s been an editor as well as a Nebula-nominated author, but she also wrote some books for Luna. Romance! Fake Writer Girl! Unclean!
by Nnedi Okorafor
Note: We all know she’s an award-winning novelist, but she’s also writing a Disney Fairies book. Need I say more?
by Kameron Hurley
Note: Not just a fake writer girl, but a militant fake writer girl who actively blogs about girl stuff like sexism in addition to writing books.
by Mary Robinette Kowal
Note: Her work has been described as Jane Austen with magic. That’s another dead giveaway right there. And if that’s not enough, she also plays with puppets!
by Alethea Kontis
Note: She’s doing fairy tale retellings. Hmph. Fairy tale books are only worth reading if they’re written by a man!
by Tansy Rayner Roberts
Note: That’s right, even Australia has Fake Writer Girls!!!
by Amal El-Mohtar
Note: Yep, Canada too!
by J.V. Jones
Note: Sure, she was writing grimdark fantasy decades ago, but do we really have to mention her when we talk about grimdark fantasy? Can’t we just talk about the men?
