Twenty-first Century SF Mistressworks

Ian Sales has been at it again, this time with an extension to his SF Mistressworks meme. His latest list is of recent SF written by women. Some are by people I’ve never heard of (shame! shame! I’ve got a lot of catching up to do it would seem.) At least one, though, The Time Traveller’s Wife, I would not – did not – define as SF.

The usual indicator applies. I have read the ones in bold type.
