Fuck Politics, Let’s Talk About Women

I haven’t done a #FuckPolitcsReadBooks post in a while so here you go. But this time it’s #FuckPoliticsReadWomensBooks because it’s Women in Horror month. I usually do these posts on Farcebook but this one may get a little long so I decided to put it here. I’ll be showcasing individual authors in this and other venues throughout the month, but in the meantime here’s a list of badass women to get you started reading some of the best horror in print. Every single one of these chicks is a fucking rockstar and if you haven’t read their work, or you don’t read work by women, you’re screwing yourself out of something special. I’m absolutely certain I’ll miss a million great authors but at least it’s a decent primer for you, and I’ll be sharing stuff about awesome women authors all month long, so don’t worry, you won’t starve. So, without further bullshit from me, and in completely random order, here they are. (Their names are linked to their Amazon author page where applicable.)


Lucy Taylor

Sarah Langan

Karen Runge

Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason – The Sisters of Slaughter (Melissa doesn’t have an author page so both are linked to Michelle’s).

Damien Angelica Walters

J. Lincoln Fenn

Stephanie M. Wytovich

Lucy A. Snyder

Sarah Johnson

Kristin Dearborn

Barbie Wilde (The badass female Cenobite from Hellraiser II is also a badass author.)

Gemma Files

Nicole Cushing

Leza Cantoral

Tiffany Scandal

Betty Rocksteady

J.S. Breukelaar (Keep an eye out for her novel, Alathea, forthcoming from Crystal Lake Publishing.)

Mehitobel Wilson (Last Night at the Blue Alice is one of my favorite books!)

S. P. Miskowski

Lisa Mannetti

Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I’m going to stop there for now but that should be more than enough to get you started. All these women are amazing and if you check out their work I can promise you it will be time and money well spent. I’ll have more for you next week and more WiHM stuff to share all month long so stay tuned.
