11 May 2020. So, I’ve never been a woman, and I don’t have any plans to become one. NOT that there’s anything wrong with that. We celebrate diversity here. The majority of fantasy readers are male. Mostly straight, white males. Again, nothing wrong there, either. But a lot of talented women write fantasy. Many of them are the reason that I love fantasy. Mercedes Lackey, Ursula K. Le Guin, Margaret Weis, Anne McAffrey (sci-fi that feels like fantasy), C. J. Cherryh, and so many more. Is there something that fantasy is missing that could draw more women to the genre?
