Thank you for stopping by to hear more about Putting the Science in Fiction, the nonfiction book based on my Science in Sci-fi blog series that will be published by Writer’s Digest Books in October 2018.
The 40 contributors to this anthology represent a wide array of scientific, technological, and medical expertise. They’ve collectively endured over 100 years of graduate study in their chosen fields. They include scientists, engineers, physicians, lab managers, nurses, and other experts.
Though they have different backgrounds and interests, all of the contributors to this book have one thing in common: a love of science fiction. Their articles reference many popular books and movies that illustrate how to (or how NOT to) put the science in fiction, with the goal of helping authors create realistic, compelling stories.
The anthology leads off with a foreword by bestselling author Chuck Wendig. Then, the main sections include:
- Research Labs, Hospitals, And Really Bad Ways To Die
- Genome Engineering: It Never Ends Well
- The Brain Is Wider Than The Sky
- From Zero To Sixty (Legs, That Is)
- Things To Know For When Skynet Takes Over
- Earth And Other Planets. Yes, Pluto Counts!
- Sometimes, It Really Is Rocket Science
- Star Wars And The Far Future
Putting the Science in Fiction will be available as a trade paperback. You can order it at your local bookshop, or from online retailers such as these:
You can also add it on Goodreads. An e-book version will also be available as we get closer to release date.
