How to Write SF
The Craft of Writing Science Fiction that Sells by Ben Bova, best-selling author and six-time Hugo Award winner for Best Editor. (This is one of the books your ol' Critter Captain learned from himself, and I highly recommend it.) (Also via Amazon)
New Book from a Critter Member**NOW IN PRINT EDITION TOO!** Awesome new book, HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SPECULATIVE FICTION OPENINGS, from a Critter member who's unearthed a shard of The Secret to becoming a pro writer. Really good piece of work. "...if you're at all concerned about story openings, you'd be nuts not to read what Qualkinbush has to say." —Wil McCarthy, author of BLOOM and THE COLLAPSIUM
I was interviewed live on public radio for Critters' birthday, for those who want to listen.

The Illustrated Super Secrets of Writing, Vol. 1 is a gateway to successful storytelling. It presents a simply written, sensible, realistic and entirely workable way to understand storytelling strategies that really work. Strategies that grab readers' hearts. Strategies that win awards. If you're serious about storytelling that makes a career, or just improves your hobby writing, this will get you there in ways other method books don't. Writers who practice these strategies are blazing trails and breaking records in writing anthologies and contests, and winning awards at a prodigious rate. I'm applying these principles now and intend to join them soon.
The Illustrated Super Secrets are an incredible writer's resource.
Moon has always been an outstanding writer. I am thrilled he is teaching his abilities to the rest of us!
This book is a must read for every author! It maps out the very fundamentals of effective storytelling!
