Yet another fantastic collection of essays on writing by Mr. Superversive himself, Mr. Tom Simon. My husband, John C. Wright, enjoyed this book so much that he read it a second time while we were on vacation last summer.
Fantasy writer, essayist and critic Tom Simon looks at some elements of successful and memorable fiction. What makes a story stand out and grab a reader’s interest, and how does it happen? What kind of imaginative elements are most likely to have enduring appeal? How important is prose style to a good story? In eleven essays, Simon investigates these and other questions, and his researches lead him to some surprising places.
