How to Write Science Fiction & FantasyBook - 2001
You've always dreamed of writing science fiction and fantasy -- tales that pull readers into extraordinary new worlds and fantastic conflicts. Best-selling author Orson Scott Card shows you how it's done, distilling years of writing experience and publishing success into concise, no-nonsense advice. You'll learn how to: wield story elements that "define" the science fiction and fantasy genres; build, populate and dramatize a credible, inviting world your readers will want to explore; develop the "rules" of time, space and magic that affect your world and its inhabitants; construct a compelling story by developing ideas, characters and events that keep readers turning pages; find the markets for speculative fiction, reach them and get published; submit queries, write cover letters, find an agent and live the life of a writer. The boundaries of your imagination are infinite. Explore them with Orson Scott Card and create fiction that casts a spell over agents, publishers and readers from every world.
