“What a brilliant book! Rule 13: Read this book. It can only help you write better genre stories. What's to lose?”
Vanessa Gebbie, award-wining author and editor of “Short Circuit: A Guide to the Art of the Short Story"

Written also to entertain readers of genre fiction - sci fi, fantasy, paranormal, horror - the book is useful for beginning writers, established authors, writing groups and creative writing courses in schools and universities as a quick and fun 101 on creating imaginary worlds in books and film.
