Ratio authors F:M = 16.6666:11.3333, not counting the reviewed magazine.
I don’t receive copies of Vector, to which I have also submitted reviews, so I don’t know what has actually appeared this year or not.
Books discussed at length but not technically paid reviews:
Ratio F:M = 3:1
Ratio F:M = 20:0 – which, since these were for Sleeps With Monsters, is Deeply Unsurprising.
I’m not going back and counting individual instances for a ratio of F:M:Publicly Nonbinary, since this is to mainly satisfy my own curiosity.
Review copies received this year can be found by searching the pictures tag here. Again, not counting.
I fairly suck at reading works in translation, or by authors from outside US/CAN/UK/IRE/AUS/NZ backgrounds. Also suck at reading works by people of colour, although I think I’m doing a little better on that count this year than last. Something to keep track of.
