This book provides the general reader with an introduction to the field of imaginative fiction. The first two chapters describe the growth of science fiction from Aristophanes to Asimov and give the history of its parent literature, fantasy. The rest of the book affords the apprentice writer an overview of skills necessary for creating imaginative literature. Chapters include discussion of scene-setting, story-plotting, and writing dialogue, as well as advice for storing literary works, keeping records for tax purposes, marketing a story, dealing with editors and agents, and bargaining with publishers. Finally, there are hints for successful writers about relating to their communities, handling publicity, and melding the needs of the creative artist with those of a successful human being and family member.
