I guess, pretty much what it says in the subject line... Are there any dedicated presses left?

Aqueduct Press run by Timmi Duchamp at http://aqueductpress.com/ is dedicated to feminist sf. Other presses that I know of that are getting started are not necessarily dedicated but have a feminist SF line -- Tachyon Press, for instance, publishes some feminist sf stuff. Circlet Press is of generally feminist bent, and focused on sf/f erotica. Meisha Merlin is sf/f mostly or primarily, often queer, often feminist. Lethe Press is another small press doing at least some feminist sf. Probably, a lot of small sf/f oriented presses that I'm not listing here are operating out of feminist sensibility.

And major presses so far as I know continue to have some speciality lines - like the Feminist Press has a fair number of sf titles. Attic Press, if they still exist, has their fairytales for feminists line (although this may not be current anymore).

Probably some of this should be added to http://wiki.feministsf.net/index.php?title=Publishers_and_Presses

Yay! I came across Aqueduct last year and bought a bunch (I love Nicola Griffith work), but there's a whole lot more to check out here. Are you a member of the fsf website/talkboard thingy?

I'm the founding webmistress of feministsf.org and feministsf.net and all the associated projects, but I haven't (yet) done much with the forums (http://forums.feministsf.net/) . And I often end up lurking in any discussions, because I prefer to read what people say, and make obsessive lists, etc.

You?

I was for a while, drawn in by Nalo Hopkinson, who I took a course with. But I changed email address and city and just ran out of time... I should check back in :)

I'm just pulling this thread out of dormancy.

Would anyone like to recommend specific aqueduct press books. We've bought a few, but we've yet to read them.

Yeah.

If any of them say Lucy Sussex, read those.
