Talking of proselytizing at Christmas, I appear to have been at it. It wasn’t planned that way. A while back the Fantasy Faction website got in a bit of hot water because it published a list of fantasy novels to look forward to in 2013 that was, in the modern vernacular, a bit of a cockforest. So I decided to help them out and wrote a little article about forthcoming fantasy books by women. It took a while for it to get posted, and it finally appeared today. You can find it here.
My apologies to anyone whom I have left out (of whom I’m sure there are any). I should also add that I’m pleased to see many SF books by women due out next year. I’ve already read The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord, and loved it. I’m also very much looking forward to Gemsigns by Stephanie Saulter. I’m sure that there will be others.
