Sandra McDonald's periodic table of women in science fiction...annotated

Bold the women by whom you own books
Italicize those by whom you've read something of (short stories count)(I've also counted non-fiction, or works edited by the individual))
Star those of whom you've never heard

Okay so maybe I'm the only one who didn't know this yet, but Diane Duane is working on having the books whose rights have reverted to her available as ebooks. The first two of the out-of-print Middle Kingdom/Tale of the Five series Door into Fire and Door into Shadows are available via Smashwords or her site which links to for only $3.

She's working on bringing out the third one (that the Meisha Merlin omnibus didn't collect, but I bought via the Corgi edition in the 80s), Door into Sunset (which does add a satisfying end-for-now to the trilogy, no real solution to Herewiss power dilemma as this series was projected to have more books), as well. I so wish she had the time and money - or maybe BAEN to give her a contract - to finish that series. Beautiful new covers, too. These books had understated and also starcrossed love with same sex, opposite sex and alien sex partners in a polyamorous relationship in the 80s!! AND a save-the-world plot which worked!!! It is the most excellent crack fantasy epic (with a value of crack=Kaori Yuki).

At the moment she also offers A  Wind from the South completely for free - a book that should have become the start of a series as well.

Addendum: You can tip her via Paypal if you liked A Wind From The South, or you could buy it in print from
