I get cranky if you copy and repost my material wholesale (especially the reviews) but there's one exception: feel free to copy and share all the items tagged f/m.

We feature brand new science fiction stories from writers from all over the world; we have an interview with Charles Stross; first in a regular column by Steve Green; a story competition; SF Caledonia, with a science fiction story from John Buchan; and reviews of recently and to be published books—including The Annihilation Score by the aforementioned Charles Stross.

Plus, we have fantastic original artwork to accompany each story.

But the comment system did not seem to want to accept me as an LJ user. Ah well.

Someone else has a run at the f/t ratios of the Hugos.

I believe there is an error in the article, that Tiptree was widely known to be a woman after 1977. I guess I could look her up in the 197thingie SFE to check...

Days put to no good use: 1, 4, 6, 13, 20, 22 and 23. Even granting a day off a week, that's three days wasted. Although actually there was at least one SFBC book in there. And 2 for RT. Let's add those...
