I bought this book mainly because I had an interest in developing a hard sci-fi story. I was looking for the type of practical advice that I wouldn't necessarily find in a generic craft book (for example: how can I design my own planet??). This book was exactly the type of resource I needed. I have about thirty pages dog-eared at the top and another twenty dog-eared at the bottom (my system: if there's something interesting near the top of the page, I dog-ear the top; if there's something interesting near the bottom of the page, I dog-ear the bottom). "The Creation of Imaginary Beings" and "The Creation of Imaginary Worlds" were especially helpful, not to mention the essay on building a future.

For those of you who are more interested in some basics written THROUGH the sci-fi genre, there are a couple chapters worth your time (especially the ones written by Isaac Asimov). Though I consider most of those chapters a little below my skill-set, I was still humbled by Stanley Schmidt's "Seeing Your Way to Better Stories," which I dog-eared a couple times.

All in all, I came in looking for specific, concrete advice on world-building in the sci-fi genre. I wasn't disappointed.

I just got this book and have only been through a few chapters, so far, but it has pointed out some important things for me. I suspect this would be a good read for anyone who writes or wants to write.

Here are the essays -- the <i>old</i> essays -- everyone in the science fiction field references. I decided it was time to stop letting everyone else tell me (for example) what Heinlein's Rules For Writing were, and read them myself, un-paraphrased, un-modified, and in their original context.

A different aproach to -How to write... - book, not by explaining how to actually write something but a series of essays where the authors explain how they write and what rules they follow and what's important for the story. I find it very interesting, specially because these are renowned authors, with decades of experience.
Mataxe
There is lots of good practical advice by the many authors inside this book.
Mildorah
Not quite as good as the book written by the editors of Asimov that gave examples, but I still found this useful and have carried it to my writer's meetups.
Liarienen
This is a book of essays. Some are much more interesting than others. Overall... a good book.
Bought this for my husband. He really finds it helpful!
