Diverse books:
Asian SFF authors

What better way to honor Asian and Pacific Islander American Heritage Month than with supporting/reading Asian authors!? Below you’ll find a list of Asian authors of adult science fiction and fantasy books, perfect for an #AsianReadathon (I’ve seen one on Twitter, and on Instagram as well) happening in May, or just to support Asian authors in general.

As always, I’m not trying to make a “complete” or as long as possible list, but one that includes books that fit my own personal tastes and if you’ve enjoyed recommendations by me before, you might enjoy these as well. The list mostly consists of books/authors I’ve already read and highly recommend with a few added that I’ve yet to read myself, but trust to be good.
