Re: Wow!

I did a whole post:

About 6 of the 13 novels pass all three criteria.
One fails to have any PoC at all, and that's mainly because of setting.

My short stories fare much more poorly. 26 of the 70 have PoC in them at all. Only 6 pass. The short work is often much more focused on two or three main characters so there isn't a lot of outside interaction.

And most of my stuff fails the Beshdel because I write male same-sex romance.
