Product Details

Praise

"This book is a collection of blog posts by Dan Koboldt, who has been feeding writers excellent scientific information for a long time… Every writer should have a copy on his or her bookshelf." —Seattle Book Review, 5-star review

"Koboldt has gathered experts in medicine, genetics, neurology, zoology, technology, and astronomy to correct the inaccurate depictions of science that often occur in fiction…The entries are brief, knowledgeable, and highly entertaining, like hearing an exasperated friend rant about his or her area of expertise." —Booklist

"This book is a must-have for authors and aspiring authors." —Sequential Tart, 9/10 rating

"This book is a natural choice for writers of medical dramas and science fiction, but even writers of historical fiction will find important advice within its pages. Putting the Science in Fiction is definitely a resource every writer should have in their toolbox." —Girl Who Reads

"This is a really good book with essays penned by an eclectic range of authors on a broad range of subjects…as a resource I will be referring to it for a long time to come." —Crime Novel Reader

"The basic information is here as jumping off points, some delve into much more detail, and many offer up other resources to dig into the topics more deeply…a useful, well-written resource. And for those with less familiarity with some of the topics, that would be only more true. Recommended." —Fantasy Literature

"This book is a brilliant resource, both for writers and for those with a more general interest in science. The authors are hugely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their subjects, and there’s so much in here to teach you and provide inspiration for writing and further learning." —Books at the End of the Alphabet
