Hello scifi fans. New to Inkitt. Just posted my scifi/mystery novel MURDER BEYOND THE MILKY WAY. Would love to hear anyone ideas on how to attract readers.
Hello, all. Today I've just joined Inkitt and immersed myself if this community of readers and writers. Doing so, I also uploaded the first part of my book I've worked on for quite some time, called Heaven and Hell. It's a romance, sci-fantasy novel that fits into the YA genre nicely. I don't want to say more before I spoil or give away anything else. Oh, and I've also submitted it to the fantasy contest just to test the waters and see where everything goes. Constructive criticism, feedback, etc
is greatly appreciated as this is the first time my manuscript has been brought public.
Introducing myself, I'm a high school junior that loves both the sciences and literature (although of course language arts is my highest subject). Reading and writing are no stranger to me as in fact they are my constant companions through life. I'm from California and love travelling; I'd love to study abroad and meet new people and places to not only affect my writing but also my perspectives.
Nevertheless, I'm hopeful that Inkitt is the trunk of where I can branch out to read other's stories and vice versa. Whilst making lots of friends :)
Hello hello! I used to do science fiction a while back, and still am a fan of reading it. Look forward to reading some. And maybe writing some again.
Hi everyone, I'm new to the sci=fi genre and have my first sci-fi novel still with my beta readers. I'll be presenting a sample from it soon. Just posted Chapter 1 of my NaNoWriMo murder mystery, 'Trashed!'
FTL. What an important subject for so many sci-fi's. Not all of them, like in "I, Robot." But many sci-fi novels feature some form of faster-than-light travel, and its workings are critical to the novel, even if only subtly so.
Is FTL a warp drive, where it warps space to make a ship "feel" like it's going considerably slower than lightspeed? Is it a hyperdrive, where it takes you into this brilliant slipstream? Is it a quantum leap where you open a "door" or "portal," go through it, ... See More and come out somewhere else?
How long would it take to reach another planet? Another star? Another sector of the galaxy? The other end of the universe?
What's involved in the processing power to navigate from A to B? What are the risks? Are there utilitarian ways to use it, such as jumping past an attacking fleet?
Is FTL commonplace, like in Star Wars? Does it vary, like in Star Trek? Are there multiple types of FTL out there with their own strengths and weaknesses?
I'd love to hear what others have come up with in their own writing. :)
I was researching the various sub-genres of Science Fiction, here's a shortlist:
I find it interesting that 'Dystopian' doesn't count as one, according to this list anyway.
I write in the Military, Dystopian, Soft and Space-Opera areas. How about all of you? What has drawn you into your specific sub-genre?
Only descendants of gods and angels can breathe the air we breathe, and walk the road we tread. Are you such a god?
Hello! I just finished a book called God's Favourite Story , it is a Romance/Mystery novel. . I say God runs a multiplex with infinite number of screens of which he is the sole owner, projectionist and audience. What if yours was Gods Favourite Story? Wouldn't similar things happen again and again?
Here is the Blurb
I might seem new to New York but it’s the same old shitty metropolitan city for me. People don’t care about others as is the case in any major city. Each ... See More person lives in his own cocoon. Let me not talk about others. Today, i will talk about myself. I am a twenty eight year old walking piece of meat in the shady subways of New York. Why would i be here? Well, that’s a long story but New York had really brought out the evilness in me. I am way more evil than i was. I changed my look, lifted my hair up at the front end and sported a goatee. This look i believed was the look for the son of Satan.
Giving a speech sucks!
You can feel that knot in your stomach just thinking about it.
It's even worse when..............
It's all about dimensions, right? Dimensions are the planet's gear shifter.
Unseen bindings, stretching, pulling this way and that forcing us to consider what lies ahead, beyond, in the now.
There are dimensions out there touching ours in ways we still cannot understand.
The day will come when binding tug at you. What will you do then when you can see and understand more than you have ever known? More that you want to know?
Gaze into the void and ... See More look for me.
Strap in, blast off, and discuss all things Sci Fi. Talk steampunk, space travel, time travel, and all else in between.
