This book is powerful in the understanding and comprehension of these specified genres and gives much clarity on what is expected and elements of interest amongst the fields. Definitely important for those writers just beginning but equally important for those trying to make it in the genre writing fields.
This book is a keeper for my writing shelf. I can't offer enough praise for the thoroughness of the topics discussed. This title is packed with information for the beginning to the advanced writer. Something for everyone.
As my own writing is edging toward more fantasy, this book has become an invaluable tool.
Rob is eloquent, informative and doesn't make the reader feel talked down to. Instead, he invites you on an exciting journey as he shares what he's learned and it can help you. The author's seven years' work of research and articles show in the quality and preciseness of his writing.
The author offers encouragement and humor while educating us in an easy to follow, coherent step-by-step manner. For this cohesive, treasure I am grateful. If you want to write in the science fiction/fantasy/horror genre then you really need this book. This multi-published, award winning author has much to share. His titles are selling well here and abroad.
Rob Shelsky's Guide To Writing & Publishing Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror, to me is the definitive guide to the genre. I have another how-to book on the subject but I reach for Mr. Shelsky's first. As I type this, I'm thinking I should have ordered a second copy. I most highly recommend this book!
I am now a Rob Shelsky minion. Come and join me!
