This morning I decided I would learn something about the current and past successful authors of science-fiction and fantasy. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t read as much as I ought to have, although I’m playing catch-up some lately.
Right now I’m reading about Jim C. Hines and his first big novel deal with his GoblinQuest series. It’s an interesting and inspiring story. Another author and multiple award-winner I’ve been reading about this week is Mike Resnick. He has a good series going on called “Ask Bwana” where he dispenses industry advice. The #2 post went up this week and there are 57 more to follow. I just ordered one of his Hugo winning short story collections (more accurately, it’s a collection of some of his short stories that won Hugo awards).
I found out about these authors through the Writers of the Future forum. There are several more interviews listed in there and I intend to work my way down the list reading them all and following links to the author’s websites.
I feel like I’ve stumbled in on a kin-folk gathering… no one knows me, but I am getting to know them, ha.
