Diverse Sci-Fi/Fantasy of the 20th Century
In part two of our discussion on diverse sci-fi and fantasy, we turn our attention to the later half of the 20th century, when the field opened up a little more to BIPOC and queer authors.
This is a huge topic and we couldn’t possibly cover everyone, so here’s a list of recommended authors who we didn’t get a chance to discuss in depth in this episode:
D. C. Fontana
Margaret Brundage (artist, the famous cover artist for Weird Tales)
Somtow Sucharitkul (S. P. Somtow)
R. Garcia y Robertson
Elizabeth A. Lynn
C. L. Moore
James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice Sheldon)
Rosel George Brown
Suzy McKee Charnas
Samuel R. Delany (duh)
Ursula K. Le Guin (duh)
Octavia Butler (duh)
C. J. Cherryh
