Science fiction and fantasy books are full of amazing female characters, who live on in your mind after you finish reading. And now, a new pin-up calendar celebrates some of the greatest heroines — like this Cory Doctorow-inspired image. Check out more below!

Every year, artist Lee Moyer creates a calendar of literary pin-up art to raise money for the Clarion speculative fiction writing workshop. (Check out some of last year's images here.) And it's not too late to give your contributions to this year's Indiegogo campaign! There are three days late to donate $25 or more, and get yourself a stunningly beautiful calendar.

Check out a closer view of a few more of the images from the calendar below!
