2013 WOGF List

This is the list of books I've read for the Women of Genre Fiction Challenge.  The challenge is to read one book each by twelve women authors of SF, Fantasy, or Horror during the 2013 calendar year.  The "getcha" is to read authors you've never read before.  So for me, that left out personal favorites like Ursula LeGuin, Anne McCaffery, and Connie Willis.  Fortunately, through my Hugo challenge, I was able to include several books by women I've just read for the first time this year.  So I only needed to choose about seven more.  I'm so glad I did this challenge, because it gave me the opportunity and motivation to read books from "Frankenstein," now considered the first SF novel, to new works like "Redemption in Indigo," an amazing tale in the magical realism genre.
