Via [personal profile] merfilly. I don't yet know where the list originally came from. ETA: Source PDF ("75 Years of Fabulous Writers: A Periodic Table") and YouTube video ("Diana Comet Presents...75 Years of Fabulous Writers") are here. The video contains more names than the PDF. Additional names have also been added to the meme along the way.

Bold the name if you own at least one book she worked on
Italicize the name if you've read something she worked on (short stories count).
*Star the names you don't recognize

In an effort to give this meme more educational value and create a reference for myself, I've included a web site for each person I haven't read and/or didn't recognize.

Recommendations encouraged!

Oh, man, I'd completely forgotten Joan Aiken but I read her a lot as a preteen and in my early teens.

I also hugely loved Susan Cooper's "The Dark is Rising" series as a kid, and it's on my "to re-read" list.

I remember liking Rumer Godden, but it's been so long (20-ish years?) since I've read anything by her, I can't recommend a specific book.

The only thing I read by Sharon Shinn was a little heavy on the romance and light on the SF for me, but I know other people who just lover her stuff.

Oh, also, not on the list, but recommended as women in sci-fi that I liked (in case you're not familiar with them):

C.S. Friedman (esp. "In Conquest Born" and "The Wilding")

and

Julie Czerneda - the Webshifters trilogy
