Diversity in IF - an IFDB Poll

by The Xenographer
RSS Feed

Most English-language IF that's set in something resembling the real world seems to deal with vaguely WASP-y types in the US, the UK, Australia, or Canada. What are some works that explore different settings from these and/or characters with different cultural backgrounds? (Again, I'm looking for things that are in English and not set in space or a fantasy kingdom.)
