Abusing the Strange Horizons 2015 Count for Personal Benefit

Strange Horizons has just posted their sixth “SF count” of representation in SF reviewing. It’s very interesting and I recommend you look at it. Sadly, they never have the space to include this site so I’ve helpfully created a table with entries for James Nicoll Reviews, both for the whole of 2015 and also for 2016 thus far.

 Enjoy!


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.
