The women in sf meme

james_nicoll asks, following Martin Wisse: Which of the 117 authors listed on Sandra McDonald's periodic table of women in science fiction have you read? Following the rules, I’ve bolded the ones I own (or have owned) books by, italicised the women I’ve read something of (short stories count), and starred those I have never heard of. James points out also that there are a number of people on this list whose work he is familiar with who don't fit the stated criteria well. People who fall into that category get underlined. I'd like to add a <flash> also for those I have actually met, but that would be too much like bragging.
