The Complete Idiot's Guide to Publishing Science Fiction

by Cory Doctorow Karl Schroeder

You'd like to write science fiction. Maybe you already write the stuff but haven't had any sales yet. This section can help you start out on the road to success. There are two things you must accomplish to become a successful SF writer: become a writer of entertaining and thought-provoking stories, and market those stories successfully to a large audience. We'll look at how you can take steps toward both these goals, by easing you into the process of writing, and showing you how to plug into the SF writing and reading communities. The author of this book donated a digital copy to Bookshare.org. Join us in thanking Cory Doctorow for providing his accessible digital book to this community.
