Writers and Resources

Writing Excuses is a weekly podcast by Brandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, Howard Tayler, and Mary Robinette Kowal. Basically a college level education in writing SciFi/Fantasy.



Reading Excuses a forum on the 17th shard Sanderson fan site, which also functions as a writing critique group (of which I am a member).



Reese Hogan – Science fiction author whose works often include a historic, or historically inspired, element.  Read Reese’s first book, The Deadliest Echo!
