About

I've heard that a lot of good critique happens in the Groups section, but I couldn't find a Fantasy/Sci Fi one. So anyone interested in this genre please read and critique and do post your own work for feedback too.

    Duke of Bedlam commented on the group Fantasy/Sci Fi's wall:
    Are we all cowering in the shadows of Twilight and Harry f*cking Potless? Whither art all those bright, bawdy, beautiful bobbydazzlers and body-snatchers that so make our genre utterly unique? Have we all been abducted by aliens, scaramouches, or, ...

      Clytemnestra Tis all a question of what you refer to as Fantasy, Duke. You seem to include horror in your idea of Fantasy yet as a Fantasy writer, horror is not my thing.

      Duke of Bedlam Suum cuique, Clytemnestra ... I do indeed believe there is a very fine line 'twixt horror and fantasy, having once been a scribbler of demonic tales in my hormone-sodden youth, for do not many Fantasists include monstrous entities and fey wraiths within their works, and does not Gothic/Dark Fantasy hover on the precipice? Personally, characterization is my forte and I focus more on the monsters within than those without. Forgive my outburst, and do not run away with the idea I have aught against JKR's meteoric ascent, it just always seems SF/F writers are lumped into the lunatic fringe of pen(wo)manship and are all too oft lanterns hid 'neath bushels, whate'er their bent. Respectfully, DoB

      Clytemnestra He-heh! Fantasy fiction is a genre of its own, Duke but clearly you are in love with one aspect of it that looks in now and again: Horror. In case you didn't know it, Horror is a genre all of its own - as is Science Fiction - and you have no right to consign SF/F writers to the lunatic fringe simply because you looked in on the wrong site.

      Duke of Bedlam Clytemnestra, alack, you seem to have misconstrued my meaning most grossly. I have been writing and submitting SF/F for over thirty years, and was expressing the then, and sometimes continuing, disregard toward the genre. Granted, I did have a great passion for horror when I was a lot younger, but, have only ever submitted a horror story once, back in 1985, and that was for a competition. Every other scrap I have produced has been SF/F. I don't condemn the writers of this genre as the 'lunatic fringe', I was merely expressing mine own experienced dismay at the fervent creative output being thus trivialized. Even today, there remain few agents and publishers who will even touch the genre with the metaphorical barge-pole, and as soon as one mayhap mention its being your field, the doors begin swinging shut. I hope this will bring better clarity to my stance, and pray you may acquit me of the charges laid against me, unwarrantably. SF/F is my field of dreams, and I am in the right place ... at least, I imagined myself to be. DoB.

    Are we all cowering in the shadows of Twilight and Harry f*cking Potless? Whither art all those bright, bawdy, beautiful bobbydazzlers and body-snatchers that so make our genre utterly unique? Have we all been abducted by aliens, scaramouches, or, worse still, inertia? Come forth and be counted, brethren ... His Disgrace, Duke of Bedlam

    Ah c'mon! Where are yous?
    I know some fantasy & SF MSs can be a tad longer than other genres, but surely we can spare a wee bit of time here to help each other?
    So here's my contribution...
    Agents for SF - which is better, UK or US?
    Chapter length - which do you prefer to READ? Long (10pgs+) or short (1-3000k)?
    Best starter strategy: completed trilogy (or longer series) or stand alone MS?
    Best competitions to enter?
    Any Scots writers into SF & Fantasy out there?
    Or maybe I should try the general forums... that's up to YOU.
    Your (very) hopeful Mad Cow

    I haven't been here for at least two years. I'm just about to begin editing an old unfinished novel. Can someone please remind me how to post to the group to receive critique? thanks

    Hey there! I'm new to the word cloud and looking forward to chatting with fellow writers!
    I'm in the process of approaching agents for my first fantasy novel and so would love to get some feedback on my first few chapters from you guys. I will post them up soon. I'm also looking forward to reading other fantasy work on here. I haven't read much SF, but will happily try to be a helpful critic :-)

    Hello everyone,
    I've just created a forum for the revised version of the Prologue from my science-fiction novel called 'The Abductee'. For anyone interested, it is the first in four books which follow one family who go from skeptics to believers as they enter a world full of alien abductions, government conspiracies and a truth that will threaten to tear the whole world apart. War is coming - with just one problem; Who is the real enemy?

    If you're interested, take a look at the revised Prologue and see what you think - i'd love to hear feedback from you all :)

    hi all,
    I've written several SF short stories. One (Vermin) published in 'Attack of the B-movie monsters: night of the gigantis.'

    Evening everyone. Just arrived here, this looked a likely group to join. Written a few short stories which I guess fall under the 'fantasy' umbrella, and looking to read some good advice and perhaps chat to like minded souls!
