Science Fiction for Lesbians

To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever read a science fiction novel in my entire life. However, I stumbled across the Science Fiction for Lesbians website and decided to blog about it, as there’s a good chance some readers of my blog might read sci-fi. This particular website stands out by virtue of the fact that every book reviewed is either written by a lesbian author or features a lesbian/bisexual character.

Over 200 books are reviewed, and the author ranks them on a 1 (terrible) to 5 (awesome) scale. The last update to the list appears to have been January 2010.

I think it’s important to point out that the author offers an explanation for their choice of the words “lesbian, gay, and bi:”

I use these words as shorthand to refer to characters who either only have sexual relationships with members of their own sex (regardless of species), or who have sexual relationships with members of their own sex and any other sex (there might be more than two).
