Another australian author, more on the fantasy side although he has 
written SF: Garth Nix.

I recently listened to the audiobook of his _Newt's Emerald_ and enjoyed 
it thoroughly. Fantasy regency with a heroine who played with her cousins 
and is very good with ships and knots and keeps rescuing herself before 
the hero can get to her. Wittily written.

What we need is a tough new kind of feminism with no illusions. ... We
need a kind of feminism that aims not just to assimilate into the
institutions that men have created over the centuries, but to infiltrate
and subvert them. -- Barbara Ehrenreich
