update: kate elliot is not actually a woman of color and i’m confused as to how she ended up on this list :(

I see these lists go by and I always sigh because I’m not included again, and then I shrug and do nothing. And I realize I’m part of the problem for doing that. So let me include my book and others by wonderful POC women authors not on this list who write spec fic (sci fi, fantasy, dystopian)

Prophecy by Ellen Oh

Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall

Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland

Shatter me by Taheri Mafi

Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves

Cat Girl’s Day Off by Kimberly Pauley

Living Violet by Jaime Reed

The Hunter Kiss series by Marjorie Liu

Into the Wise Dark by Neesha Meminger

Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor

The Girl with Borrowed Wings by Rinsai Rossetti

The Twelve Kingdoms by Fuyumi Ono

If you see any I’ve missed, please add! I hope we can compile a more comprehensive list at some point.
