Re: I think I want aliens that are sort of humanoid in my no

Thanks! I was reading this - Grading Science Fiction for Realism (found it through the Science Fiction Genre Lounge on NaNoWriMo) and it helped.

Re: Any Catholic Science Fiction readers/writers here?

Hi Asp, thanks for the reply! :D That Hideous Strength was a different book than the first two in the Lewis trilogy, I'll grant you that - I liked it though. Perelandra was my favorite in the Space Trilogy. The Da Vinci Code did suffer from a lot of infodumps in the form of lectures by one character...

I think I want aliens that are sort of humanoid in my novel

This is for a novel I'm going to do for NaNoWriMo. It's already started, so I'll be continuing it - as a "NaNo Rebel" if you know what that means. (For those who don't it simply means I won't follow the NaNoWriMo rule about writing a completely new novel in November.) Would sort-of-humanoid aliens b...

Re: Any Catholic Science Fiction readers/writers here?

Thank you for the suggestions - a friend of mine introduced me to Zenna Henderson just this year! :D I enjoy her writing very much. Last week I did finally get around to reading the classic A Case of Conscience by James Blish, the one about the Jesuit priest who exorcises a planet. It was interestin...

Any Catholic Science Fiction readers/writers here?

There're only so many times one can re-read A Canticle for Leibowitz! :lol: Or Mary Doria Russell's The Sparrow and Children of God , which I discovered recently. Of course there are a few others and there's C.S. Lewis who's beloved by many Catholics and there's Tolkien. But if you are Catholic and ...

Thanks! :D I've been looking for recommendations of books - classics I might've missed, and new ones I might not have heard of.

Re: This seems like my kind of place!

Cats are good! :cat: :cat: :cat: I'm hoping to move in with a friend soon to save money and she has 3 cats. It'll be fun. (My bunnies seem to get along fine with other species - they probably have enough attitude to square off with a pit bull!)

This seems like my kind of place!

Hello all! :wink: I'm a new gal here, from the midwest United States, and I just found this board today. I got really into science fiction starting with the original release of Star Wars in 1977 - I was in high school then. I got into reading, watching and then writing science fiction. But I had put...
