It's not a contest. Really. But it's a rather amazing statistic from Elizabeth Moon. I've read many of her books and enjoyed them. Railroad ("RR") is writing very deep and complicated books. He's taking his time to do that. This is not about that so much as it's about just how many words in print this particular woman writer has. (And I'm sure others, like Kate Elliott, have similar stats.) Again, it's not about E. Moon, per se.
What struck me was how little respect women writers get.
