Books from Critters!

Check out Books by Critters for books by your fellow Critterfolk, as well as my list of recommended books for writers.

How to Write SF

The Craft of Writing Science Fiction that Sells by Ben Bova, best-selling author and six-time Hugo Award winner for Best Editor. (This is one of the books your ol' Critter Captain learned from himself, and I highly recommend it.) (Also via Amazon)

New Book from a Critter Member

**NOW IN PRINT EDITION TOO!** Awesome new book, HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SPECULATIVE FICTION OPENINGS, from a Critter member who's unearthed a shard of The Secret to becoming a pro writer. Really good piece of work. "...if you're at all concerned about story openings, you'd be nuts not to read what Qualkinbush has to say." —Wil McCarthy, author of BLOOM and THE COLLAPSIUM

Interviewed!

I was interviewed live on public radio for Critters' birthday, for those who want to listen.

Woo-hoo!

My unscientific estimate is that members of Critters are around 10X more likely to make sales than non-critters (but cause and effect? who knows?). Regardless, this page is to celebrate our successes!

Critter Robert Qualkinbush has analyzed the reports below and created a summary page of how many sales Critters have had. Fascinating, and astounding! Good going to you all.

If you have something to report, tell me immediately!

Free ads on the Critters site are also provided as a benefit of membership.

This is a deeply meaningful story for me as a Brazilian. Rio-Niterói bridge is the most important bridge in Rio de Janeiro. It was built during the most harsh period of our military dictatorship. During its construction, 100s of workers were concreted alive; forever unacknowledged while the government squealed about progress. In 1992, journalist Geraldo, whose father died during the bridge’s construction, learns about strange sightings and wrecks near the bridge’s columns. He’s going to investigate… But sometimes, the past resurfaces to be acknowledged. } [Jun 2022]
