Old(er) Women in SF/F

We do not see a lot of old(er) women in genre fiction - at least not as the protaganists. This list is based on Catherine Lundoff‏'s list of stories of Old(er) Women in SF/F (http://catherineldf.dreamwidth.org/26...) - check out the original list for all the short stories

The list includes stories where the protagonist is female and over 40 years old in the genre of science fiction and fantasy (defined broadly)

If you know of any works that fits the bill and is not on the list, feel free to add them. With series what has the same protagonist, I have just added the first book in the series.

When I start the list they are not in any particular order, so feel free to vote!
