Eyes on the Stars: Writing Science Fiction & Fantasy

Author(s): Sean Williams


"I'm not going to lie to you. There are no secret handshakes or rules that will get you on your particular dream-path. If there was, we'd all be on our own already. If you want to be a successful writer, be prepared to have to make up most of it as you go along."

In these essays, Sean Williams-the best-selling author of over 120 short stories and fifty novels-shares his thoughts on the aspects of writing craft and the publishing business that young authors should know.

Drawn from essays, keynotes, and presentations delivered over a decades-long career, Eyes on the Stars: Writing Science Fiction & Fantasy features Williams' thoughts on balancing passion and professionalism, understanding the new writer's career path, embracing the delicate art of writing media tie-ins, and reaching for the stars with your writerly ambitions.

Whether you're looking for writing advice from one of the preeminent writers of Science Fiction and Fantasy working in Australia today, or you're a fan of Williams' work who'd like to capture a slice of his creative philosophies, this chapbook is chock full of advice from a veteran of the Australian genre scene.
