Female Science Fiction Authors: K-M

There’s not nearly enough attention paid to female science fiction authors. I spent a few hours compiling a list that I was going to use for my own purposes, and then realized there was no reason not to make it available.

Please note a * after a listing in nationality indicates not originally from that country.

(Sorry for breaking it up by pages, folks, my original table broke and I could not get it fixed. So this way at least you’re not endlessly scrolling.)
