Sandra McDonald's periodic table of women in science fiction...annotated

Bold the women by whom you own books
Italicize those by whom you've read something of (short stories count)(I've also counted non-fiction, or works edited by the individual))
Star those of whom you've never heard
(I left the text plain where I had heard of the writer but I don't think I've read anything by her)

Not the exact list of writers as in the periodic table is it? It's great to add people, but sad to see some who were there aren't in it now.

ganked so much in any case :)

Who is missing? I'm looking at the pdf and this list seems to match it (transcribed top to bottom and left to right).

I didn't look at the pdf, but when I rewatched the slideshow/video and noticed Elisabeth Vornarburg (among the Canadian writers) and she's not on this list.

Didn't watch the video, but she seems not to have made it onto the pdf table (which includes a note that they couldn't fit everyone), so it looks like a difference stemming from the source materials rather than someone deciding to change the list for the meme. Fwiw.

There were people on the video who weren't on the actual chart. There was a note on the video that the chart wasn't big enough to list everyone. I didn't eliminate or add anyone to the list above.

I didn't think you had :)
too bad they couldn't have put everyone from the video on the chart.

ETA: and I apologize for possibly leading you to think I was accusing you of removing or adding names to the list. That wasn't my intention at all.

No, that's all right, and I'm sorry if I sounded snappy. I just got back from having dental work done and I'm still a little tense.

You didn't, I was just feeling guilty :)

ouch, I can relate. Hope you feel better soon.

All hail Aggiecon, at which I met both Mayhar and Butler. And when I was there, at least, a large percentage of the members and officers were women, so I never got the sense that I was an outlier. Fandom, for me, has always included women and people of color.
