June 2017 in Review

June

20 books read. 10 by women (50%), 8 by men (40%), 2 by NB (10%)

Works by POC: 5 (25%)

Year to Date

126 works reviewed. 68 by women (54%). 55 by men (44%). 3 by non-binary authors (2%).

Works by POC: 39.5 (31%)

And now, the meaningless table.

Key: WNB stands for “women and non-binary genders”, while POC stands for “person of colour”. R/R stands for “reviews/reviewers”. Figures in brackets are percentages; for R/R the percentage represents the site’s R/R over my 2015 R/R. SFX is actually called SFX; it is not short for anything. Same with io9. F&SF is the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. SFS is Science Fiction Studies. LARB is the Los Angeles Review of Books. CSZ is the Cascadia Subduction Zone.
