Publisher's summary

Science and technology have starring roles in a wide range of genres - science-fiction, fantasy, thriller, mystery, and more. Unfortunately, many depictions of technical subjects in literature, film, and television are pure fiction. A basic understanding of biology, physics, engineering, and medicine will help you create more realistic stories that satisfy discerning readers.

This book brings together scientists, physicians, engineers, and other experts to help you:

  • Understand the basic principles of science, technology, and medicine that are frequently featured in fiction
  • Avoid common pitfalls and misconceptions to ensure technical accuracy
  • Write realistic and compelling scientific elements that will captivate readers
  • Brainstorm and develop new science- and technology-based story ideas

Whether writing about mutant monsters, rogue viruses, giant spaceships, or even murders and espionage, Putting the Science in Fiction will have something to help every writer craft better fiction.
