For Superscience Me Sylvia talks about her hunt for such SF books and about her previous findings. Spoiler: There are the strangest correlations; for example if you are an old women in a SF novel, you are likely to be a politician and/or a bodysnatcher; if you are black, female AND old, you are likely to have survived the apocalypse.
I met Sylvia at the Conference "Worlding SF" in Graz last december, where she presented the first findings of the list-project under the amazing title "Throw Grandma out the Airlock". More on this great conference and all the "SF Worlds" that where presented there you find in our 16th episode.
