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.

Conspiracy is the third book in the A New World series. Conspiracy was very good. It took me a bit to get into it but once I did, I was hooked. I might have gotten into it quicker if I had read the previous two first, but this read really well as a standalone. This ended up being a fantastic sci-fi thriller, lots of twists and turns, its full of treachery, deceit, intrigue. Todd is the Special Envoy for Terran Affairs, he works with the Nentraee, a humanoid race. But The Liberi Dei wants the aliens destroyed and Earth left alone, solely human. The character and world building are amazing. Overall, a fantastic story, extremely well written with pacing that hooked me!!
