My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Best Modern SciFi Not Written by a Cishet White Man

What is the very best science fiction written by a woman or POC or member of the LGBTQ+ community written in the last 20 years? 

Our latest poll is live!

This poll is from our Year of Diverse Polls, and as such it can't includes authors who are cishet white men. Please adjust your nominations accordingly. Also please check out that post before leaving any shitty comments here or on social media that wildly miss the point and which I will cheerfully remove.

Our poll was pulled from your nominations. Discounting a few that didn't follow directions, almost everyone that got a second made the final round. I put a couple up that I seconded myself.

The actual poll is on the left hand side at the bottom, beneath the "About The Author" section. Mobile viewers will have to go to the very bottom of their page and switch to "Webview" in order to access the poll.

Everyone will get three (3) votes.

There is no way to rank votes, so please consider that every vote beyond the first "dilutes" the power of your initial vote and use as few as you can stand to use.

This poll will be up for a couple of weeks. You can vote once a week. Since I can't stop shenanigans, I encourage as much of it as possible. Vote early, vote often.

  1. Marita Smith for Convergence and Emergence.
    Sheri S Tepper for just about everything she wrote, but particularly Gibbons Decline and Fall for including a lesbian character with a crush on an alien.
