How to Write Great Science Fiction by Horace Leonard Gold
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There has never been a collection of stories quite like this. It was originally published 1955 in America, and 1965 in Great Britain. Since then, it has been a highly treasured rare book in the collection of connoisseurs of Silver Age and Golden Age classic Science Fiction. As a collection of SF stories, this book is excellent in its own right, but its added attraction -- a unique feature -- is the author's editorial notes on each story, taken from his working journal. These notes constitute a 'how to do it' on writing science fiction stories, from one of the pioneers of the genre. The stories themselves are taken from about fifteen years, during which H L Gold wrote for many editors and edited the most widely read SF magazine in the world: Galaxy. The author has compiled many collections and written many stories but this anthology is unique not only within his own work, but also in the world of Science Fiction in general. For the aspiring author, and for the seasoned, professional writer alike, these short stories and sharp commentaries have been a treasure of inspiration for half a century. This book is an excellent resource for every class in creative writing.
