Several others are in my to-read piles. A couple used to be on the to-read piles and were later culled.

I'm realizing I read very few books written by women. I should perhaps remedy that :)

Isn't it time we started doing some actual comparisons on some of these.

I ticked very few boxes, but I suspect I would have ticked very few boxes if you'd also listed the male-authored books you've reviewed in that time.

Frankly, I remain utterly astonished at how much some people actually manage to read. My prime reading years were while I was a teenager; ever since I've been working, I've read a lot less, and ever since I've been writing, even less still. Not sure I get through as much as a book a month on average (though I read a lot more short fiction, for various reasons, I still don;t read as much of that as many people I know).

Sadly I can't read that fast any more, some of the authors I have read but not the works you cite.

I actually translated one of these books (into Dutch): Harpist in the Wind by McKillip.

It's a small world!

(I note that one of the authors on the list has also responded.)
