Weekly Journal May 24-30

It’s finale season on TV this week too, I expect to write some posts about that next week. Work will be busy so don’t expect to much.

This week’s Formidable Female Protagonists in Science Fiction where:

  1. Sarah – Skinned Quester
  2. Elizabeth “Bet” Yeager – Stranded Veteran
  3. Morgan Roche – Agent of Change
  4. Honor Harrington – The Salamander
  5. Captain Reverdy Jian – Sceptic Pilot

As always the list is generated at random from my new extensive list of formidable females. We now have 30 FFPinSF and at least 40 more to go. To extend on that and also to promote my other interest Television I posted part 3 of  [Female Protagonists on SF TV] Erica Evans on V.
