In June, our illustrious authors covered their Favorite SF stories, World-Building for a Generation Starship, Time travel and Alternate Worlds.
The Daedalus Seven is a vast generation ship with multiple, diverse habitats on a doomed, never-ending voyage. David Keener designed the ship, then challenged our inestimable writers with a serious world-building exercise. Their mission is to design the civilizations, flora, fauna, and geographical conditions of the ship’s remaining habitable areas. And then brainstorm about the types of stories that might occur on the ship.
Here are the May episodes of the Hourlings Podcast, featuring our awesome crew of working indie writers. From heroic archetypes to Happy Hour, from dialogue to brainstorming, and even getting an agent…the May episodes cover real topics for real writers.
Episode #23’s topic is “Top-5 Sci-Fi Sub-Genres,” based on the semi-scientific research of our illustrious crew of working SF/Fantasy writers. Let the debate begin! And let us hope that the swords stay in their scabbards!
For Episode #22, the topic is “Author Platforms,” a decidedly elusive topic for most people. Nevertheless, our inimitable writers will try to shed some light on this seemingly hard-to-quantify topic. Whether traditionally-published or indie published, writers still need an Author Platform to help them connect with readers. Find out all about the basics!
