Monique How few!


message 2: by CaliGirlRae (new)

CaliGirlRae So true. Certainly there's more SF books to add with awesome main female characters!


Kagama-the Literaturevixen Isnt the Meljean Brooks book more of a steampunk?


message 4: by Dawn (new)

Dawn Dragondrums has a male protagonist, BTW (Piemur).

Nice list.


message 5: by Karen (new)

Karen Love the Tamora Pierce but that is fantasy isn't?


message 6: by Lou (new)

Lou Bell No Sarah Zettel, or did I miss one? Fool's War is a classic!


message 7: by Marne (new)

Marne Wilson By what stretch of the imagination is the Mists of Avalon a science fiction book?


message 8: by Kevis (new)

Kevis Hendrickson Marne wrote: "By what stretch of the imagination is the Mists of Avalon a science fiction book?"

Good question, Marne. I think that book warrants removal.


message 9: by Anastasia (new)

Anastasia I deleted a score of books which are fantasy:
- Birthgrave by Tanith Lee (happens to be my favorite book ever... still not scifi, although you could argue that point, it's classical pulp sword & sorcery)
- Tamora Pierce books
- Golden Compass books by Pullman
- Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold
- Dragonsbane by Barbara Hambly
- Godstalk by P.C. Hodgell (great book)


Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) I cleaned out some fantasy books
- Tamora Pierce books (someone post have added them back in after Anastasia deleted them)
- Golden Compass books by Pullman (ditto)
- The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley


message 11: by Amy (new)

Amy I also have to say the Tehanu by Ursula K. Le Guin is also a fantasy novel. Mrs. Le Guin did write a number of Sci Fi books though.


message 12: by David (new)

David Leemon Monique wrote: "How few!"

I thought of five books to add to the list.
