Big Gay Fantasy

mroctober just asked, in comments, why only women seemed to write Great Queer Fantasy.

The weather outside is vile--New Orleans seems to be visiting Philadelphia--and LJ seems slow, with no great huge comment-riffic posts going on. And I want email. And food for my brain. So I will ask.

Is this true? And if so, any theories as to why?

First, what is the Great Queer Fantasy Novel Canon? And who wrote the canon, men or women, and do we know or care what their genders/orientations are/were? And were the Great Queer Protagonists male or female?

And as a side question, do fans of slash like Queer Fantasy? (I know that in some cases they do, but in some they don't--I'm looking for specific authors that seem to be popular in both directions. So to speak.)
