Meme: Women in science fiction and fantasy publishing (writers & editors)

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!
