The Stars Are Legion, by Kameron HurleyRead about another entry on the list.
Men are a non-issue in the bizarro, unapologetically feminist space opera, set within a vast Legion of organic worldships populated solely by women, who have a symbiotic relationship with their environment. Everything the Legion needs to continue to function—from new bits of bio-machinery, to new people, to new worlds—is literally birthed by a woman, in a metaphor so visceral, it would take far more space than we have here to unpack it all. The story tracks the betrayals and the bonds of sisterhood between two women whose fates are intertwined with the futures of more than two worlds. Deeply strange and utterly engrossing (and, occasionally, just gross, though trust us when we say the body horror serves a powerful purpose), it is sci-fi like you’ve never experienced it before.
