Now in pride of place on my Bookmarks Bar...

Well, my to-read pile just grew exponentially and I spotted some favourites.

I thought I'd add Jon Courtenay Grimwood: especially the Arabesk trilogy (set in an alternative universe North Africa) and End of the World Blues (set in Japan).

Also springing to mind with women of agency, PoC, and lesbigay are Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate and her YA Finishing School for intelligencers (all girls, of course).

Umm, lack of prejudice around colour pointing to other prejudices in a society leads me to mention Slated, a YA novel by Teri Terry, which is set in a future with personality wipe technology.

Sadly, the first fantasy novel (and first of a series) I found based in a non-ersatz European setting misses out by dint of having been published in 1987, but has a special place in my heart so I'm going to cheat and mention Daughter of the Empire anyway. Because woman with agency in a Korean-based world!
