Last Call for Votes––What is the BEST Genre Fiction (Non-SF/F/Horror) Not By a Cishet White Guy

What is the BEST Genre Fiction (Non-SF/F/Horror) written by a woman, a person of color, or a member of the LGBTQIA+ community?  

Please follow this link if you're wondering why this poll has some particular limitations. This is the last of our diverse polls.

Your very super lastly last chance to vote on this poll before the results go up this weekend. We have to get on to our new year of polls that will start 2019.

Everyone gets three [3] votes, but as there is no way to "rank" votes, you should use as few as you can stand.

The poll itself is in the lower left at the bottom of the side menus.

If you're on mobile you can scroll ALLLLLL the way to the bottom and click on"webpage view" to see the side menus and get to the polls.


  1. No link for voting. I might have missed it, but immediately I think of The Color Purple by Alice Walker.

    Next (since I missed voting I will indulge): One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

    Beloved by Toni Morrison

    I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Maya Angelou

    Honestly I read these over 30 years ago, survived college, and then my inner bookworm took a long nap. I would like to read these again. At my age (almost 50) they'll all be new to me.

    Keep writing! You are both waking up that bookworm and helping me take steps in writing again.


  2. If you're on a mobile, you need the web version... either scroll down and click "view web version" or a direct link is

    Then it's at the bottom of left hand column :)
