Publisher Description

The Science of Science Fiction Writing

Seven famous science fiction authors—Heinlein, Campbell, "Doc" Smith, Williamson, de Camp, van Vogt, & Taine—present essays on the science and art of writing science fiction. They offer valuable tips and insights to the writer breaking into science fiction, and give the general reader fascinating behind-the-scenes information on how stories are constructed. Originally issued in a limited edition, Of Worlds Beyond rapidly sold out and soon became a collector's item. In response to many requests, Advent arranged to return the book to print, for the benefit of present-day students of science fiction. Many instructors of science fiction courses have chosen Of Worlds Beyond as required reading, and it remains on of the few (and best) explanations of how science fiction stories are written. It is full of useful insights for writers, editors, and readers.
