OMG Renay...this is SUCH an awe inspiring and amazing and kind of sad post. Sad at what it points out. Though I have to say that I was surprised that the numbers weren't even more skewed. But then when you break it down to male blogs vs. female blogs....well that's where it really gets sad :( And I know I'm just as guilty as the next. I'd love to get deeper into this too...because when I ask myself what some of my favorite SF/F/H books are, the ones that immediately come to mind aside from Neil Gaiman's American Gods are Margo Lanagan's Tender Morsel's, Lynn Flewelling's The Bone Doll's Twin, Cherie Priest's Four and Twenty Blackbirds and some of Anne Rice's earlier stuff. So why is it that most of what I read is still male oriented at the end of the year? Is it the influence of other bloggers? (because that's where I get most of my recommendations honestly) Is it because that's what just gets advertised more and pushed in our faces more? Is it because that's what I've been trained to go towards? I don't know :( I can tell you that this post DOES make me want to make a real effort to try to focus my reading on women writing SFF though. There are so many amazing stories out there by women. Thank you times a million for doing this amazing project. I can't even imagine the time and work you put into this but I was blown away reading this!! This is great info!

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
