The Great Database of Female Fantasy Authors!

OMG. THIS. THIS is what I have ALWAYS WANTED.

In all of it’s glory, a list of all the Female Fantasy Authors. Squeeee!

The Waking Den

Sometimes you happen across something that seems so utterly simple, so utterly necessary, that you can’t help but wonder how it has gone this long without being developed previously. In this case, it’s literary, and as both a writer and reader I’m very much appreciative of it.

Familiar with r/fantasy? No? Well, let’s say it can be confusing and muddled at times–such horded forums have that tendency. Yet from the mass, one can sometimes pluck gems. The gem in question is a MASSIVE SPREADSHEET…which, alright, Excel and Google Docs might not be the most exciting thing in the world to you, but this is a spreadsheet of ALL THE FEMALE FANTASY AUTHORS. Such shininess has no price tag, particularly because those authors are broken down into the specifics of…

  1. Sub-genre
  2. Strong Female Characters
  3. Similarity to other authors
  4. And even their presence on some of the hefty listings out there.
