Review: The Guide to Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction


The Guide to Writing Fantasy and Science FictionThe Guide to Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction by Philip Athans

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


As an aspiring Speculative Fiction author, I'm very interested in books on the craft of writing, especially when they're specific for the genres that I love. This was an informative book on how to write Sci/Fi & Fantasy books. My only complaint was it was short. I wish there was more information, examples perhaps, but for the price I paid I felt this was well worth the read.

  1. Hi Tom,

    Not sure if you've run across these books yet, but if you're looking for more SciFi/Fantasy writing advice, I'd recommend Orson Scott Card's How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy, as well as Holly Lisle's writer website, which has tons of free info on the topic.

    Best of luck in your continued efforts!
