Re: Hey, guess what? (race in publishing)

I don't know how to embed tweets into posts here, so this will have to do. A link to Sarah Gailey's reaction to the appalling lack of diversity in the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in Seattle's Museum of Popular Culture.

For those who can't be arsed to follow links: of 75 writers there, only ten are women, and there is only ONE person of color. As Ms Gailey eloquently puts it, WTF?

Re: Hey, guess what? (race in publishing)

The last six winners of the Hugo award (the top science fiction award) for best novel have been 4 women (one of colour) and two men (one whom is Chinese). So it seems they are becoming way more inclusive.

Diversity doesn't just happen (that's a link)
