There are no indexes specifically limited to feminist science fiction materials, although there are indexes to science fiction in general. Consequently, other more general resources must be used. On-line bibliographies such as the MLA and Expanded Academic Index provide the most recent information, although they do not include the full range of publications where science fiction primary and secondary literature appear. Finding critical essays and short fiction published in small magazines remains a problem, as the few indexes which include them are not updated very frequently.
These works provide lists and bibliographic information of primary works of science fiction by women and/or science fiction with a feminist perspective; lists of female characters; and a few entries on secondary or critical works.
Although this work is not primarily a bibliography, it contains extensive lists of primary material published in the twentieth century by American and British women. Each chapter surveys approximately two decades.
An annotated bibliography of alternative sexuality in science fiction, fantasy, and horror, spanning 200&endash;1989 C.E., with 935 entries. (Each entry represents one work, not one author.) The entries are arranged alphabetically by author and are numbered. Prominent authors also have a brief biographical note, and cross-references are given for pseudonyms. Three appendices and three indexes. Includes only primary literature.
A list of almost 400 authors and over 800 titles. Not all entries have complete bibliographic material, and no biographical information is included. Only 79 pages.
An alphabetical listing of authors, with an introduction and several appendices, as well as a 1990 update inserted in the back (but which is not reflected on the copyright page). 104 entries, each including: name; place/date of birth; pseudonyms; a paragraph or two of biographical and/or critical information (depending on amount and type of information available); list of works published, divided into categories. The appendices include lists of almost 200 more women science fiction authors and a brief annotated bibliography of secondary material.
One volume of this two-volume index is arranged by subject, including an entry for women.
