Recommended for: aspiring SF/F writers
Read from August 19 to 20, 2011

Of all the "How to write SF/F" books I've read recently, this was far and away the best. It not only presented the core elements of writing, it presented them in terms of science fiction and fantasy (the first of the books to really, solidly do that), but at the same time it gave me things to think about (like addressing units of measurement in a fictional world).

The author blogs at Fantasy Author's Handbook, which is well worth adding to your feed reader.
