5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, thorough, and indispensable, 3 May 2013
This review is from: Writing the Science Fiction Film (Paperback)
I'm currently writing the second draft of my first sci-fi screenplay, and this book couldn't have come at a better time. It's an invaluable guide to the world of writing for the genre - covering plot, character, and world-building.

Grant writes from a position of authority and clear love of the genre and his objective is to get better science fiction films made - a worthy pursuit.

What he does brilliantly is to challenge the reader (i.e. the writer) to go beyond cliche and to formulate unique, distinct sci-fi story worlds and characters. He offers practical perspective and useful creative exercises to help the sci-fi writer craft the next great science fiction film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and informative., 30 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Writing the Science Fiction Film (Paperback)
Having read this book it has opened my mind to much that I had often wondered about.
This is written in such a way that a novice, such as myself, can easily understand
the process involved in making a film of this genre, I commend the author, he writes
with enthusiasm and stimulates the same in the reader, not always an easy thing to do.

This is a must for all students of film, not only for this genre, it's helpful and
informative in all aspects.
