Reread the first Amber pentalogy by Zelazny last week. Still a great pleasure, tho each time the dearth of important roles for women annoys me. A young woman would have to imagine herself as Corwin to really enjoy it.

Now I am reading Nevernight, by Jay Kristoff. Looks like a man's name, but viewpoint character is a woman. An assassin-in-training. omniscient narrator explains her peculiar world in footnotes. this approach is working so far. stay tuned
