Benford, Gregory “The Hydrogen Wall” in Hartwell, D. & Cramer, K., eds. Scree has been wiped from the face of the Land in a brutal demonstration of intent. All the floors are covered with wine-colored wall-to-wall carpet. Why did he give Mesklin oceans of liquid methane? Herodotus records that Aesop was a slave who lived around 550 B. I had dipped into records of past prophets during my Earth research. In those judgments of the dead, stemming from Egypt and Persia, the scrutiny was pitiless and the sinful soul was de facto doomed... "The Deathbird" in Kate Wilhelm (ed.), Nebula Award Stories Nine.

Now, it's a rarity for anyone but a bestselling writer to be offered an option deal. This one is a rather strange crossbreed in terms of fantasy vs. realism. Her short work/poetry has been published in Polyphony, Ascent Magazine and Sol Magazine. If the reader adopts an idiosyncratic definition of science fiction, there is no one to judge him.

The five Fallout games (1, 2, Tactics, 3, New Vegas) put you in a believable post-apocalyptic United States and you can basically do what you want. Indeed, I’ve heard at least one author say to me that if you’re getting royalties, that just means the publisher didn’t pay you enough up front. Jeff Saunderson, local pharmacist in the small town of Star City, had been assaulted at work by one of his best customers, and later Jeff had almost been killed by mysterious men in black suits before being rescued by an equally mysterious woman named Monica.

I was beyond thrilled when he joined Baen Books as a consulting editor and copywriter, and still, my eyes opened pretty widely when Baen announced Afsharirad as the editor for a new annual anthology series for The Year’s Best Military Science Fiction and Space Opera — as the press release put it, he was certainly a “newcomer” to that level.

I recognise this as something very human and very real, the cracks in our reality are always there and beckoning us to investigate; it’s why we know the earth to be spherical and not flat. Science fiction just does not interest most readers. If we can do all that, then maybe, just maybe, science fiction as a literary genre would be back on its way to cultural relevance. These are all out of print, unfortunately, but still pop up on the second-hand circuit.

I would like to share ten resources, more or less, that I think are really terrific when it comes to getting the science right. You can find many more links to SF and space paper models on the links page of Iceberg Paper Models. The solar system and space flight both get long chapters to themselves, for example.
