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

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)


I was interviewed live on public radio for Critters' birthday, for those who want to listen.

'Wulf Moon's advice is spot-on; follow it and you can launch a major career. This book is pure gold.'--Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of The Oppenheimer Alternative

Wulf Moon's How to Write a Howling Good Story is truly fantastic. A non-fiction book written with the flair of a fiction writer, which makes it more fun to read than 99% of the non-fic I've read.

Informative and entertaining!

Good book. I keep it next to me when I'm writing if I need inspiration.

This book is the bees knees. It was so informative and helped me see where I was going wrong with my writing. It gave insights and names to things no other book on writing has. Such a valuable resource. Also, it was funny. How to Write a Howling Good Story had me laughing as I read it. Such great writing.

I love how Moon dispenses the wisdom he's picked up in his years of publishing in such a friendly way. Feels like he's in the room with you, and he's quite entertaining, to boot.

Wulf Moon's book, How to Write a Howling Good Story is exceptional! I've never read a nonfiction book that was this good. Anywhere.

I read the Kindle version cover to cover and found it invaluable in my current work. Now that I have the hard cover version, I continue to consult it for writing advice.

The most complete writing book I've ever read.

Wulf 's clear, concise prose and engaging writing style just makes the reader (and aspiring author) take lots of notes and start on their own writing ventures as soon as each chapter has been read. It's an incredible resource.

Such an amazing book. So helpful.

An exceptional guide for any writer trying to add important skills and knowledge to their craft. Just the facts, Ma'am - take the lessons to heart and become a better author.

Moon follows his own teachings with this book. Clear, concise, clean, right to the point.
