      Daedalus Topical! Sounds good. As well as this excellent site, it may be worth you having a look at a goodreads group for speculative authors set up by a Cloudie, Jillybean - https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/126776

      Noodledoodle Hi, Shiver. If you look at the top bar on this page, you'll see the heading FORUM. There's an option there to post your work and critique others. Feel free to post approx 2.500 words max.

      Scarlett You can post things. But if your work is all ready well put together you can look for beta readers. You usually switch work.
