Win a guide to writing sci-fi and fantasy fiction!

If you’ve bought the latest issue of SFX (if not, get on it pronto!) you’ll know that it’s a books special, crammed with interviews with top authors and advice on how to get your own work into print. However, if you could do with yet more assistance on the latter front, you couldn’t go to a better person than Adam Roberts, author of novels like The Snow, Bête and The Real-Town Murders, as well as a host of parodies.

He’ll be one of the guests at the SFX Book Con, taking place on 24 February at Foyles, Charing Cross Road. He’ll be contributing to a panel on what makes a great adaptation, alongside the likes of Richard Morgan and Claire North.

He's also the author of “teach yourself” title Get Started in Writing Science Fiction and Fantasy, an excellent introduction for any budding SF&F novelist which provides helpful dos and don'ts, writing exercises and motivation. We have 10 copies of the book to give away. To put your name in the hat for the chance to win one, simply answer the question below.
