More Visibility Numbers

Over at Neth Space there’s a bit more information on the question of who gets reviewed. Neth gets sent books to review, and for the last 6 months those broke down as 70% books by men, 30% by women. For paper books, which you might suspect the publishers value more, the numbers are 75% male, 25% female. It is a useful reminder that the issue of visibility permeates every part of the industry. Kudos, therefore, to Ricky L. Brown at Amazing Stories for making a determined effort to find SF by women to read.
