More women have embraced the genre, for example, Justina Robson, with Silver Screen (1999), Mappa Mundi (2001), and Natural History (2003), Chris Moriarty with Spin State (2003) and Spin Control (2006) and Elizabeth Bear with her Jenny Casey trilogy, Hammered, Scardown, and Worldwired, all of which were published in 2005.
