Year to Date
255 works reviewed. 138.5 by women (54%). 109.5 by men (43%). 5 by non-binary authors (2%). 2 by N/A (1%)
Works by POC: 75.5 (30%)
Well, not quite as productive a year as I had hoped but not without its bright points. For example, I review books at a rate about 45 times that of the median reviewer in the Strange Horizons' count, books by WNB authors at a rate 90 times that of the median reviewer in the Strange Horizons' count and books by POC at a rate 160 times that of the median reviewer in the Strange Horizons' count. While I didn't increase the number of books by NB authors as much as I hoped, I did increase it. Incremental efforts over time can accomplish great goals.
All I have to do is keep on incrementing....
I have some interesting goals for 2018.
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”. 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.
