The fantasy and sci-fi genres usually don't have the best reputation for being inclusive when it comes to both, the content of the book and the name of the author. For many generations, this community was largely dominated by white men who repeated the same narrative for the same audience. Over time, these writers gained a particular unpleasant reputation for being sexist and exclusionary to women, especially women of color. But things are changing and more and more people are being represented in the publishing industry today.
Platforms like Vistmedia is actively featuring writers from around the world and it seems 2017 will end on a good note. According to Amazon's Best Books list, the number of writers representing the sci-fi genre is diverse and rich today. Out of the 20 selected titles in the category of sci-fi and fantasy, nine of the authors were women. What's even better is that among the featured women authors, people of color were also represented. This highlights the fact that these genres still have progressed to a great extent and will keep on progressing in the coming years. The strides women have made so far cannot be ignored.
It's true that 2017 has officially been the worst and people can't wait until it's over, but these 3 women who are dominating science fiction and fantasy will make readers happy.
