Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror

anthology of writing exercises

Nonfiction book edited by Laurie Lamson

Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror is the fifth volume in the acclaimed Now Write! series of writing exercise books published by Tarcher/Perigee under Penguin Random House.

“Whether you’re looking to write the next HUNGER GAMES or conceptualize the next installment of American Horror Story, the newest Now Write! installment will set you on the path to meeting your goal.”

Renee C. Fountain, New York Journal of Books

There are 85 contributors including living-legend science fiction/fantasy novelists Piers Anthony and Harlan Ellison®, Pen Densham, the writer/creator of the new Twilight Zone and Outer Limits, surrealist author of The Girl in the Flammable Skirt, Aimee Bender, horror masters Jack Ketchum and Ramsey Campbell, and many more top genre writers—among them winners of Nebula, Hugo, Edgar, and Bram Stoker awards.

I had a conversation with Jack Ketchum, who Stephen King has referred to as “the scariest man in America”, at the Center for Fiction in New York in April, 2014.
