I respect your right to say what you're tired of seeing. But, but, wait a minute -- a lack of vampire queens? We're drowning in vampire queens. Urban fantasy puts them out by the bucketful. Just a few of them:
Vampire Queens novels -- Joey W. Hilly
Vampire Queen series -- Rebecca Maizel
The Undead series (Betsy the Vampire Queen) -- Mary Jo Davidson
Sookie Stackhouse myteries -- Charlaine Harris
The Vampire Queen trilogy -- Fayth Devlin
The Drake Chronicles -- Alyxandra Harvey
Blood and Gold -- Anne Rice
Dresden Files series -- Jim Butcher
Vampire Tales series -- David Wellington
The Vampyricon series -- Douglas Clegg
I don't see the weak female part that often. It's actually refreshing when I do. But for the reverse, try The Book of Kells by R.A. MacAvoy, Nysta: The Revenge of the Elf by Lucas Thorn, The Deed of Paksenarrion by Elizabeth Moon. Also might like the t.v. series Relic Hunter starring Tia Carrere and her weaker male sidekick.4. Weak Female, Strong Male Warrior pair: Sexist. It's just sexist. I suppose not every woman is an invincible leather clad dominatrix, but these stories seem to bank on the idea that the woman is helpless. If real women were really so weak then the world we live in would be nightmarish. I for once would like to see an honest to God strong female, weak male pair where the guy doesn't end up leading at some point.
I don't know, I've read an awful lot of cunning barbarians. Broody, often, but cunning.5. The musclebound warrior: Now granted I'm a fan of Howard's Conan stories, but Conan was not just a musclebound killer, he was in fact quite intelligent. He was cunning, a polyglot, a bit of a philosopher, and a superb strategist. Sadly many people seem to be set in this idea that if you have a barbarian hero they have to be a hyper masculine intellect hater.
Usually that's because it's one continent or kingdom, not really the whole planet.6. The One Culture Planet: If humans do not create one cohesive culture then why should any other race? Not even one type of biome will spawn a single culture. It's illogical.
That's because a lot of science fiction aren't hard SF stories. That doesn't make them cliches. It just makes them not hard SF stories. Now, human having sex with female of other species -- there you go. That's what many sillily think SF consists of.8. The Science Defying Technology: Okay I'll admit I'm not a certified expert on quantum physics or genetic engineering, but if you're trying to write strict science fiction novel and then you throw something at me that defies it's cardinal laws to the point where it would have to be supernatural in nature it just bothers me. It's antithetical to the very idea of hard science fiction. A lot of science fiction is awash in this.
I believe viruses can make us able to fly. That's how the Wright brothers did it.9. A Virus Did It!: Now if you say a virus killed most of earth's population and the following is the story of survivor's I can buy that, but when you start saying that it created vampires, werewolves, and zombies, things which a virus could not do by the laws of science alone it just gets preposterous and seems lazy.
I'm far more tired of the super A.I. who decides that humans are illogical and inferior and must all be killed. And yet, I still love the Terminator stuff.11. The Robot With A Conscience: I doubt the likeliness of this, but that is not why it bugs me. It's that has become a cliche that bothers me. In classic science fiction like the works of Phillip K. Dick or Asimov they serve to further a theme and are truly compelling personalities in their own right. However since they've become a staple they just seem to be tacked on to any group of sci-fi heroes. One of the last compelling characters of this nature that comes to my mind is that of Data from Star Trek.
Ah come on, you can't take away the amnesia and the evil twin. Absolutely not. That's just mean.12. The Amnesiac Hero: Now the amnesiac protagonist can be interesting. The character is one who is a mystery to even him or herself. However this trope has been used over and over for the sake of drama or a convenient plot device in so many different forms of fiction that it's mostly just dull now.
