"I talk all that shit and then start off with a book by a man."

I love that. Note: the author is a minority, no? I just bring it up because anxiety about power can overlap between minorities and women imo, so he may be tapping into the same anxiety. Secondly, even if he's a dude, he's got a female protagonist. He may not be a woman, but he may be able to tap into that. Or perhaps most UF is about women and anxiety, but Harry Dresden proves it doesn't have to be?

Also, try Eyes to See by Joseph Nassise. It has a blind protagonist who lost his child and then gave up his eyesight to try and find her. (For another form of sight to find her, I should say.) I quite enjoyed it. But it's another dude writer.

It turned out to only 3 dudes who wanted to talk about Dresden, but wow did everyone want to talk about books written by men.

I'll look into Eyes to See when I get done Hugo reading.

The Charish and Huang books look interesting. I probably would never have looked past their cover art. I'll see if my library has them.

Tor is picking up Huang's series, so I'll be interested to see what the new covers look like.

Tor usually does great covers. I know it's awful shallow, but I can't help making snap judgments about books based on cover art.
