About Writing

At io9: Samuel Delany’s About Writing is not your average how-to-write book.

Instead, it’s Delany’s ruminations, gathered over the years, about both the craft of fiction writing and the writer’s life in general.

There are fantastic insights in there, as well as advice that might make you rethink everything about your approach to fiction writing — even if you end up disagreeing with some of it.
