Jo Walton reads a lot–I mean, a lot!–and she likes to reread. She posts her enthusiastic impressions about what she reads over on Tor.com, and several of these were recently collected in book form as What Makes This Book So Great. You can find all the posts online for free, but the book makes for a pleasant browse so why not get a copy? SF reading protocols is a must-read for anyone who enjoys science fiction.
Here are a few of Walton’s posts about science fiction by women, all of which I enjoyed reading–both the books and Walton’s take on them:
- China Mountain Zhang by Maureen F. McHugh
- To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
- Worlds of Exile and Illusion by Ursula K. Le Guin
