Bookriot's 100 Must-Read Sci-Fi Fantasy Novels by Female Authors

bookriot.com/2016/05/02/100-must-read-sci-fi-fantasy-novels-by-female-authors/
"[...]From YA to adult lit, from magical realism to epic fantasy to post-apocalyptic sci-fi feminism, from short stories to series, there's a book on this list for every single reader.
Do note that I've only listed the first book in any given series, so expect that this list could easily give you ten times as much reading power (especially with those stick-to-your-gut epic fantasy series). I've also only included one book per writer to showcase the widest range of voices from sci-fi fantasy novels by female authors. So if you want to sink into a really prolific writer like Ursula K. Le Guin or Octavia Butler, you've got loads more to work with as well."
