    I received a copy of this book directly from the authorpublisher in exchange for an honest reviewNo Just no This book was a DNF for me after the very first page—though to be fair I did read through 68% of the book before I settled down on a solid DNF rating Rather than Ideas and Inspirations for Fantasy and Science Fiction Writers this book would have been better titled Facts and Folklore because that’s basically what this book wasI was perhaps mistakenly under the impression that this book would be filled with inspirational writing advice writing prompts writing advice or at the very least a list of Science Fiction and Fantasy ideas but that isn’t what I got The book was basically a list of random facts and bits and pieces of folklore gathered en masse and regurgitated There was no sense of the author’s individual voice nor introduction to the various bits of information It felt as if the author had spent some time roaming around Wikipedia researching and then copy and pasted that research into this book as–is and called it done As a writing resource for authors looking for some kind of inspiration for writing it’s rather subparAt one point I skimmed past a 20 page essay of sorts on a historical event I was half convinced that this book was a scam at first but I think it was honestly just poorly put together I can’t in good conscience recommend any aspiring authors out there pick this up as a source of inspiration It isn’t going to be helpful to you

    This resource is remarkably extensive and varied There are articles on strange human behaviours odd customs and traditions peculiar animal behaviour secret societies and events curses unusual illnesses myths fakes religious peculiarities odd individuals and many other topicsThis isn’t a book to sit and read but a research and inspiration tool to use for those times when you have the urge to write something unusual or speculative but the ideas escape you Here you’ll find ideas to stimulate and inform those oddities that can form a platform from which the writer can dive into the world of the impossible improbable eclectic and strange It’s a veritable compendium of stimulants for the brain a lever for the imagination a cave of treasures for the storyteller in search of inventiveness If you write either fantasy or science fiction you’ll come across ideas and events here to help you make your stories interesting intriguing adventurous and yet strangely plausible It’s a work to enjoy and keep at hand for those moments when the imagination lags and the ideas begin to dry up Definitely worth the tiny sum I paid for it

    When I started reading the book I went back to the blurb provided to me I was told that the book is a collection of articles that could trigger ideasThe collection contains various topics that can be used for Sci Fi books and fantasy stories Hence the book attempts to deliver what it claims But sadly there is no introduction or a precursor to what to expect and the like Thus jumping straight into the content was like diving into unknown watersJames has made concerted efforts in compiling the articles and kudos to him for doing so The only thing I felt that could gave improved the writings were a personal touch or giving examples There were facts there were folklores Yet I felt something was amiss Maybe with a sentence or two in first person the reader would have felt like returning back to the article Also a bit of change in the writing style would have succeeded in creating better mental imageries This would have led to topics becoming better and effective inspirational triggers Otherwise the language used is simple and can be easily comprehendedOne high point of the collection is that various interesting topics have been touched upon The book could have been a wonderful source for Sci Fi and Fantasy writers suffering from a writer's block or seeking ideas and inspirations However the narration may act as a bit of a deterrent A bit tweaking could have converted this non fiction into a interesting readTo sum up the book is readable at least once for the efforts that the author has invested in compiling the articles The collection is good enough to be flipped through at least once by writers wanting to write a science fiction or fantasy storyPS Thank you James for sharing your collection of articles with me I am sure as a writer you appreciate an honest opinion Looking forward to your next which would definitely be better

    Interesting resourceIf you're a writer or want to be and are interested in sci fi or fantasy this book can give some ideas or even writing prompts It also resembles an encyclopedia of information and can help with character development story development or even additions to a current story It's not the book you just sit down and read unless you're reading to write a review as I am but it's a good resource and tool for any writer even if you're writing a different genre Whether it's a long novel or short story this book can be helpful It is filled with information and some maybe things you never even heard of or the answers to uestions you never asked but always wanted to
