Welcome to the Writer's Workshop. Each month we publish articles dealing with matters of concern to writers, with an emphasis on the technical problems specific to science fiction writing. No matter what sort of a writer you are or wish to be, you will find something of interest here.

THE ART OF WRITING

 

THIS MONTH'S ARTICLE

 

Point of View

Most books on writing treat point of view as a simple mechanical aspect of writing.  Decide whether you are going to call your characters "I", "You", or "He" and you are done.  As is the case for most aspects of writing, things are not that simple.  Choosing the wrong point of view can send you down a blind alley from which you will never recover.  This month we discuss this surprisingly subtle subject.

The Physiology of Telepathy

 

In a lot of science fiction novels, the beautiful mindreader heroine senses the villain's thoughts and alerts the Space Patrol in time to stop his nefarious plot.  That she can read minds is obvious.  The explanation of how she manages it is less obvious.  Just exactly what sort of signal does the human brain emit that other human brains can detect?  This month we look at the scientific basis for telepathy, telekinesis, and other paranormal abilities.
