Winifred, September 28, 2006 (view all comments by Winifred)
My only complaint is that this tremendously useful book isn't longer. Practical, helpful advice for writing good science fiction (and fantasy, although the emphasis is on science fiction) - as well as what not to do, finding writing groups, finding critics and agents, and getting published. The most helpful parts of this book are how to look at world creation, character creation (and viewpoint), and plot development.
