Women scientists in fiction

An off-and-on interest of mine for about as long as I’ve been on the Internet: see The women in science bookshelf and Stealing the Fire, Women scientists in fiction, which represent earlier efforts to collect representations of women scientists in fiction.

I keep a collection at Zotero.org on Women scientists in fiction, compiled from various sources and definitely not all read.

Here, courtesy of the Zotpress plugin, are . . . the latest additions.
