The stuff that's hosted on this site are the projects that I actually spent
a lot of time and effort on to bring to - what I hope is - a reasomably
professional and complete state. However, I've worked on a number of other
similar, smaller projects, that aren't in a state to be "formally" published
for various reasons. Some of this work has been made available through my
Twitter feed though; here are some examples:
A couple of threads of charts that attempt to identify the gender balance
of all SF&F novels published since 1900. These stats are much less
reliable than the "proper" project linked above that just concentrates
on the smaller and better documented dataset of award nominees/finalists.
All novels, and subgenres, proportionally
All novels, not scaled to 100%
(Posted October 2019)
Besides the above, I have other projects that I've been working on intermittently.
How diverse are SF&F awards in terms of the nationality of the finalists/nominees?
Is there an equivalent of
for SF&F book awards?
How do readership levels of volumes in series drop off?
Why are the Top 10 US retail sales for SF so stagnant compared to other
What proportion of novels published are debuts? What is the average
"nth novel" published?
What SF&F books have been published in the UK (since 1970), but not the US?
(There's a rough version
here, but it
was hacked up in a couple of hours, and definitely isn't something I feel
is really suitable for human consumption as it stands.)
