modern & women SF authors

Dear friends -

Jim and I are working on updating the SF Institute novel reading list for next summer. Specifically, we want to add more modern works - and I would like to see more female authors represented on the list.

1) The works must be seminal (hardee har har, I hear you thinking) - that is, they had a major influence on the SF that followed.
2) They represent movements in the genre that are not already represented in the current list.
3) They are by authors we don't already have on the list (preferably newer authors).

We're planning to cut about five novels, so we're looking to add five modern novels. Ideas, please!
