Several years ago, after many years of writing nonfiction, I decided to write a novel-a medical thriller in the mold of Robin Cook, Michael Crichton, and Michael Palmer. The problem was that, although I knew how to write and had received a number of awards for nonfiction works, I didn't know the how to write fiction. So, before putting fingers to keyboard I did a thorough search of the literature, which included reading numerous books and hundreds of website articles. What I discovered was that there simply wasn't one good source from which to learn the craft of writing genre fiction. "Writing Genre Fiction: A Guide to the Craft" is the book I was looking for when I set out on my quest to learn how to write fiction. It is an attempt to share what I learned from my research. It covers the six key elements of genre fiction; the various genres and subgenres; a large number of genre-fiction writing techniques; plot, subplots, and parallel plots; structure; scene and sequel; characterization; dialogue; emotions; and body language. It also covers additional information about copyrighting and plagiarism, where to get ideas, manuscript formatting and revision, and query letters and synopses. In addition, an appendix covers a large number of grammar tips.

In this brand-new collection of short stories, Aidan Chambers explores moments of truth, when a character or an event suddenly reveals an often-surprising meaning: A girl loses her humanity when she takes a summer job as a theme-park character; a boy tries to save a girl from a fiery death, only to discover the same event happened one hundred years before. And the titular story, in which an innocent game takes a fatal turn, will haunt the reader for a long time. These provocative stories beautifully lend themselves to discussion, and once again Chambers treats us to his fiercely intelligent, finely crafted prose and his incisive understanding of the wonderings of young people on the verge of adulthood. Awards and praise for the work of Aidan Chambers Michael L. Printz Award Carnegie Medal Hans Christian Andersen Award “Beautifully written, emotionally touching, and intellectually challenging.” —VOYA “Jam-packed with ideas and passionate characters.” —Publishers Weekly “A marvelous wordsmith and magical storyteller.” —ALAN Review “Disturbing, groundbreaking . . . original.” —Books for Keeps Praise for The Kissing Game “His [Chambers] sophisticated yet simple style is perfectly suited for an exploration of the new form of flash fictions—multi-genre drabbles that top out at 1,000 words—as well as standard short-story form. Thoughtful, challenging reading for teens on the cusp of adulthood.” –Kirkus Reviews “more meaningful discussion and deeper understanding will only come from teens with more life experience, and there’s real potential for possible use in high school English classes.” –School Library Journal “Models for flash fiction and the short-story form as well as points of departure for challenging open-ended discussion, the stories in this collection lend themselves to multiple curricular uses as well as thoughtful personal reading.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Worldwide Appreciation of the Short Story Form Spans Cultures and Centuries! In this concise volume, Gulnaz Fatma traces the short story from its origins in fables, ancient poetry, and tales such as The Arabian Nights, to its modern form in the early American stories of Irving, Poe, and Hawthorne, and then through the twentieth century and throughout the world. The elements of what makes a short story are presented along with a discussion of the difficulties in defining the genre. The short story's relation to the novel as well as its uniqueness as its own form are deftly presented. While the American and European traditions of the short story take up much of this book, the final chapter is a thorough presentation of the short story's development in India. Anyone interested in the short story--teachers, students, writers, and readers--will find this volume informative, thoughtful, and a welcome addition to our understanding of one of literature's most dynamic forms. Gulnaz Fatma is an Indian writer and author. She is a research scholar in the Department of English at Aligarh Muslim University in Aligarh, India. "As a fiction writer who has also taught the short story form, I was impressed by the thoroughness and insight presented in this concise book. Fatma's broad exploration of the short story form is backed by numerous supporting examples and her chapter on the short story in India will introduce many readers to that country's own literary gems." --Tyler R.

Unruhen bekämpfen, Herzschmerz und Fälle aufklären, die aber nicht vor Gericht gebracht werden dürfen, darin ist Sean Duffy als katholischer Bulle in Nordirland inzwischen Spezialist. Immerhin bekommt er es zum zweiten Mal in seiner Karriere mit einem locked room mystery zu tun, und welcher Bulle – in Nordirland oder sonstwo, katholisch oder nicht – kann das schon von sich behaupten? Die Journalistin Lily Bigelow wird im Hof von Carrickfergus Castle, wo sie sich allem Anschein nach über Nacht hat einschließen lassen, tot aufgefunden. Selbstmord, glaubt man, aber ein paar Dinge geben Sean Duffy zu denken, und er weigert sich, es dabei zu belassen. Duffy findet heraus, dass Bigelow an einer verheerenden Enthüllung in Sachen Korruption und Amtsmissbrauch innerhalb der höchsten Regierungskreise Großbritanniens und darüber hinaus gearbeitet hat. Und so sieht er sich mit zwei schwerwiegenden Problemen konfrontiert: Wer hat Lily Bigelow umgebracht? Und was wollte er oder sie damit vertuschen?
