I've read a LOT of sci-fi and fantasy, and whilst some good fantasy novels have female leads (Gloriana and The Iron Dragons Daughter spring to mind...) I can think of very few science fiction books written from a woman's perspective. Browsing Amazon just now for example, every single recommendation is for a story about men.
I want to read something new - there must be great sci-fi out there with female main characters, but where?! I'd love to hear your recommendations :)
