As the author Nikki Vanry states in the article, she is only listing one work from each author so this is a great resource for finding speculative fiction writers with whom you might not be familiar. I might quibble with the order or the representative work, but not the resource itself. Enjoy!
Dr. Kathy Kitts, a recently retired geology professor, served as a science team member on the NASA Genesis Discovery Mission. Before that, she directed a planetarium for nine years. She has dozens of non-fiction publications spanning professional papers to textbooks to general interest articles. However, she no longer writes about “what is” but rather “what if.” Her speculative short fiction has appeared in James Gunn’s Ad Astra, Mad Scientist Journal and The Storyteller’s Anthology. Born and raised in the southwest, she is currently living in the high desert of New Mexico.
