News | New Site for Fantasy Mistressworks Needs Submissions

Just some news for today - but plenty of reviews and articles coming up, including Overlord Rising and the new Angry Robot titles. Look out for another venture into steampunk here on Drying Ink...

So - the news! In order to draw attention to classics by female fantasy writers, Amanda Rutter has created the Fantasy Mistressworks site, which you can find here. They're aiming to collect both nominations and reviews of titles from the 20th century and older fiction, and so - they need some help! Readers can both nominate additions and send in reviews for titles.

In all honesty, I think this is a great idea. While it would be nice not to need to do this - if classics by authors of both genders were equally well known - I think that presently, it'd be pretty useful! While I think the market is starting to even out (though that's just a dataless perception, I may be wrong), pointing out some classics by female authors that were passed over over the last few centuries is a great start, and a list I may well use myself - once I defeat my TBR Pile of Doom, that is.

Well - what are you waiting for? They need nominations...


  1. That site sounds like a great idea, I will head over :) I'm looking forward to seeing what you make of Overlord Rising, I Loved it :)

    1. I thought so. Yes, it just came in the mail this morning (pleasant surprise!) - I saw your review, so I'm really looking forward to this one. I could do with a bit of epic fantasy right now!
