Here we go with another contest, this time focusing on women who are eligible for the Campbell award this year, which means women who were first published professionally in 2016 or 2017.

For this one, your research is easier. The Campbell Award Eligibility page is here for you with the list. Because these are newer names, I've not read that many of them. In fact, looking at the list, I have only read 7 of them (which is particularly embarrassing because I am friendly with several others on social media):
(People love her debut novel, The Bear and the Nightingale, which I only liked)
(People love her debut novel, The Tiger's Daughter, which didn't work for me at ALL)
(Only one story, but it's on my Hugo ballot)
(Her debut novel is AWESOME)
(Their debut novel is on my Hugo ballot and is super extra AWESOME)
Now, of course, you're not limited to these 7. If you've already read any of the other eligible authors, or if any of them seem intriguing to you, by all means review them! And I'm making this one 2 weeks, so people have a chance to read a novel if they so choose.
If you do choose to read one of the 2 novels I loved, I'll make the choice simple. Shaw's novel is a fantasy, and a delight, with some darkness. Solomon's novel is science fiction, dark af, with moments of levity. Both novels (and Rivera's) are queer af.
The reward for this contest is 5SBD for the winner and 2 for 2nd place.
