A worthy read for authors regardless of genre
On Writing Science Fiction is about writing science fiction only as a topic, not as a focus. Somewhere in the book is a money-line about the book teaching writing first, fiction writing second and writing science fiction last.
Quite true and accurate! This book is a gem for anyone who wants to write. Don’t worry about the genre aspect, it’s a great study.

Hello all and welcome to our continuing series of author interviews.
Today’s guest is THE GIRL FROM SPACESHIP EARTH author Patricia Ravasio.
Pat met The Buckster in her 20s and the experience changed her life forever.

Rox specializes in corporate communications and Charles specializes in security, communications technology and anything with bits and bytes.
