Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror

Since I’m a huge science fiction and fantasy fan, with a little horror thrown in here and there, I had to pick up a copy of this book.

Part of the Now Write! series of writing books, which includes books on writing nonfiction, mysteries and screenplays, Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror includes writing exercises from Harlan Ellison, Lisa Renee Jones, David Brin and writers for such shows as The Twilight Zone, Star Trek: The Next Generation and The X-FIles.

The books is divided up into the following sections:

Understand Your Speculative Genre

Ideas and Inspiration

Story Development and Plotting

High Stakes and Terror

Building Worlds

Theme and Meaning

Memorable Villains, Heroes and Monsters

Communication and Relationships

Scene Construction and Style

Practicing Your Craft

This isn’t just a book to read. It has writing exercises in it, so make sure you have pen/paper or laptop/tablet/computer close at hand.
