* Actually I read this when it came out in New Zealand at the end of 2013. It is brilliant, though deeply disturbing. Highly recommended.

Obviously that’s not a complete list. Not every publisher submits their forthcoming books to Locus, and I haven’t spent a lot of time researching the list. However, the point remains: diversity, it is not hard, why aren’t you doing it?
