Sci-Fi Mistressworks

I originally created this list back in 2013 as an antidote to the SF Masterwork series published by Gollancz since their list was almost entirely books by men. The SF Mistressworks list went on to inspire the SF Mistressworks website, which has been reviewing science fiction books by women writers, published during the twentieth century and earlier, for the past four years.
