FANTASY AND SCIENCE FIGURE WRITING
FANTASY AND SCIENCE FIGURE WRITING. If that wasn't enough, Lisa devoted this one to me (he said humbly blushing). I still think that WRITING FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION is an outstanding "how to" script for any prospective author. She has used her own victories and tests, and she is filling the script with good, sound advices.
Beyond the practice reflections, the work is also enjoyable, full of narratives and insight from Lisa's own work. One million years ago, when I dreamt of storytelling as a child in primary education, I found the SCIENCE FICTION HANDBOOK by L. Sprague de Camp in the Bayonne Public Library.
I was so much impressed by the camp's "how to" that I took it out every few month and reread it. The WRITING FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION by Lisa Tuttle should be as inspiring as a new breed of reverie. Shippey, one of the world's premier Tolkien scientists, speaks for JRRT as the most important writer of the twentiethcentury and destroys many of the critiques that have been voiced against LOTR by those who are hesitant to include a fantasy in the mantra.
This is a very legible volume that will give you a new understanding of the profundity and skill of what JRRT has done.... and Shippeys comparisons of Tolkien and Joyce will surely cause a howl of indignation among the writers.
