SF Women A-Z: Delightful Ds: Datlow, Dellamonica, and Durgin

Technically, Ellen Datlow is more well-known for editing than for writing, but I thought it was worth including her, since I've read several of the anthologies she's edited. You can find her Wikipedia page here.

A.M. Dellamonica has written over thirty short stories, but I'm more familiar with her novels such as Indigo Springs (which I really enjoyed) and Blue Magic. Here are links to her website, Wikipedia entry, and Amazon page.

I know Doranna Durgin from her fantasy work such as Changespell and Dun Lady's Jess, but she also writes romance and mystery as well. I think she may be a hybrid author and is self-publishing her backlist, but I'm not certain. Here are links to her website, Wikipedia entry, and Amazon page.


Please feel free to add more woman SF/fantasy authors in the "D" category in the comments.

Popped into your blog as sci-fi isn't a genre I read so trying to educate myself a bit on this Challenge. Thanks for sharing Sandra.

Alex, Cortney, and Fran, I hope you check some of them out!

I'm going to have Dellamonica to my TBR. That cover is glorious, and it looks like her other stories are really good, too. Thank you!

I can't think of any that start with D. I'm not familiar with these three ladies. Looking them up now.

I admire authors who can write good short stories. They're hard to do well. Like other here, I haven't heard of this author, so love that you posted about her.

I've actually met Dellamonica. She's a fantastic woman in person, and you can really see her personality in Indigo Springs as well.

Susan, thanks for checking out their work!

Cleem, I agree short stories can be hard to write.

Lyle, how lucky for you!
