Stole this from over the internet, and then stupidly forgot to note from whom I’d taken it…

The Rules of the Game Are:
Bold the women by whom you own books
Italicize those by whom you’ve read something of (short stories count).
*Star those you don’t recognize
Unmarked are those whose work you have not read

  1. Eluki bes shahar *is* Rosemary Edghill, according to Wikipedia.

  2. She was one of the few whose name wasn’t familiar at all, so I didn’t actually think of checking that one. Will correct, thanks!
