To quote [personal profile] liv, in response to a request I made for recommendations: Helen S Wright: A matter of oaths, which you can download free from her website has lots of awesome women in space. It does have some romance, but mainly m/m, the women are too busy being awesome to bother with relationships. It's not quite up there with the Vorkosigan saga, but it's a similar type of thing and very readable.

I also just read it and enjoyed it. Sadly she hasn't got anything else published, but I'd recommend this one.

Because of the recent YAGay fiasco, I went looking at Smashwords for YA (or close to that) GBLT fic. I did my normal filtering... ignore anything over $6 and anything with cringe-inducing errors in the blurb and anything without a preview.

I found a promising-looking story: Familiar Scars by Christy Leigh Stewart; just under 30k words for $1. I clicked on the listing.

Stark black-and-white drawing of a girl in emotional distress with black-and-white wavy sections dividing the page around her. Title in gothic font. Compelling (or at least interesting) book cover art by Megan Hansen; I'm going to try to remember that name, because I like her art style.

I was disappointed in the text )
