Tobias Buckell is a relatively well-known science fiction author. Although I confess I have not read much of his work, being more fantasy oriented than science fiction, I did recently read his book Nascence: 17 Stories That Failed and Why. It was an interesting look at his growth at a writer, giving us a rare glimpse of a published author’s early stories (the ones we writers are more inclined to hide from view than show the world) together with Buckell’s analysis of why the story didn’t work.
It is worth a look for any writer who might be struggling with their own work and looking for insights as to why. I have guest posted my own review of the stories on Damyanti Writes. You can read the full post here.
