Ladies Leading

Quite unintentionally, nearly all of my recent book acquisitions have been stories with ladies leading the narratives. The five above, as well as others not pictured like BLACKBIRD, Vol. 1 – THE GREAT BEAST (Buy), SKYWARD, Vol. 2 and PAPER GIRLS, Vol. 5. It’s business as usual for me, really, having always read and often preferred women protagonists since I’ve been a devout reader of fiction, having cut my early teeth in the 80s and 90s on stuff like Chris Claremont’s UNCANNY X-MEN (for Marvel Comics) and the novels of Dean Koontz, known most especially for strong female characterization. That influence carried over into my own fiction once I started writing prose in 1993. The curious thing is the three novels being sci-fi genre novels — those are all the rage these days and I used to prefer my sci-fi in more graphic form like movies, TV and comics. But after reading Beth Revis’ ACROSS THE UNIVERSE last Fall, I suppose I’ve come around on that.
