SF Femmes

Following on from the recent discussions about there not being enough women writing SF in the world, I’m delighted to see that Jason Fischer is looking for SF/Horror for the next edition of Midnight Echo. You can find all the details here, but thought you might be interested read this part of Jason’s blog:

“I guess one of the things that might be putting some people off is the fact that this issue is actively seeking science fiction, and is headed up by three white male writers.  But I for one would be just as happy to see the next Marianne de Pierres as much as the next Greg Egan.  There are some very talented folks out toiling under the Aussie SF umbrella, and just about every genre writing thing I’ve ever been to has been split roughly down the middle gender-wise.  There’s no reason why TOCs can’t turn out similarly, without any special effort expended, simply because a large initial pool of fiction would allow this to happen naturally (and probably unconsciously).”

Janette Dalgleish and a bunch of others who I won’t name, time to get cracking.
