Mike Ashley


I did a little looking around on Mike Ashley, editor of The Mammoth Book of Mindblowing Science Fiction. (See previous post). Seems he's been doing this editor thing for a while, and has a whole bunch of Mammoth short story collections running around. jwghposted a link to a google book upload of one of Ashley's books concerning the history of SF magazines--and there's no doubt Ashley knows about women in science fiction, as well as some of the concerns surrounding this issue.

So why for the love of isotopes?

I found the ToC for another Mammoth collection he edited, The Mammoth Book of Extreme Science Fiction, and there is one woman in it. One.

So, what's up with the male and white orientation of these two collections? Does anyone know this guy? Anyone have an answer?
