#FearlessWomen: Celebrating Women’s Voices in Speculative Fiction
The BiblioSanctum is pleased to announce that starting this month, we’ll be joining many others in the blogosphere as participants in Tor’s #FearlessWomen program to celebrate women’s voices in speculative fiction, so we’re here to spread the word far and wide! Here’s a brief description from the publisher’s website:
Women are shining in every genre of speculative fiction, and it is no longer enough to say “Women are here.” Instead, #FearlessWomen everywhere are taking a stand to say “Women will thrive here.”
Beginning this summer, meet a new generation of #FearlessWomen who are shaping new blockbuster worlds—and re-shaping our own. Highlighting major titles from bestselling authors V. E. Schwab, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Jacqueline Carey as well as titles from acclaimed and debut authors such as Mary Robinette Kowal, Tessa Gratton, Sam Hawke, and Robyn Bennis, #FearlessWomen will be a celebration encouraging fans to start a dialogue about women in publishing, their worlds, their voices, and their unique stories.
So, beginning next week through to the end of summer, keep your eyes peeled for the #FearlessWomen banner and tag as we highlight tons of fun and exciting new books coming your way, along with cool stuff like reviews and exclusive excerpts. The year is just starting to heat up, so be on the look out for these upcoming titles and mark down their release dates!

Eyes peeled and “wanted” list ready to welcome new titles and new authors, or to visit new stories from those I’ve already read and appreciated. Thank you!!!! 🙂
Same here, I’m looking forward to revisiting favorite authors (like Carey) and also excited for debuts!
Ohh pretty books 😀 Want
They’re VERY pretty books!
I love this and see several I want already. I featured City of Broken Magic on a Can’t Wait Wednesday feature some time ago and am really excited about it. Initially I wasn’t crazy on the cover but after seeing it here, I have to say it’s really growing on me!
That one sounds like a lot of fun. I love the idea of a magical bomb squad, haha!
SOme intriguing ones
Yep, and a number of these are already on my must-read list for this summer!
I’m always happy to see a new Jacqueline Carey book! 🙂
Yes! I would read anything that woman writes! Did you hear there’s going to be a new Kushiel book from Joscelin’s point of view? 😀

Seriously?? Oh that’s great, I didn’t know that! :O
I’m doing this too, I’m pretty excited! Although I hadn’t heard about the last four books. Very cool!
I don’t think those four books are part of the campaign this summer, but Tor’s #FearlessWomen page highlighted them too, so I thought I’d feature them here as well 🙂
Cant wait for the Carey book – I love her writing. And it’s so exciting that she’s writing a book from Joscelin’s pov. woo hoo.
Yes, I can’t wait for that!
