Welcome to Sci Fi - Arizona, possibly the oldest author-owned-and-operated website on the Internet.
We specialize in professional-quality, technologically sophisticated science fiction stories and novels. Our current inventory of fiction is valued at one million dollars! If you like Robert Heinlein's work from the 40's and 50's, Poul Anderson from the 60's, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle from the 70's, and Tom Clancy from the 80's, then you will probably like it here!
Be sure to visit our Writer's Workshop. Once 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 should find something of interest in the workshop.
We also host Don Dixon's Spacescapes Gallery. Don is the finest astronomical artist at work today. Check out his glorious views of the planets, the stars, and the future.
And if you are a science fiction writer, you may be interested in our Astrogator's Handbook in the non-fiction section. We all know what the stars look like in the skies of Earth. The problem is, if you are writing an interstellar romance, you are more interested in where the stars are with respect to one another. We have maps of the nearest 3000 stars as viewed from Polaris.

A Galaxy Reborn
It is the 43rd century and humanity occupies a substantial chunk of the Orion Spur, the small galactic arm in which Sol is located. Homo sapiens Terra has become Homo sapiens Galactica.
Following the invention of faster-than-light travel in 2530, the Great Hegira went from a trickle to a flood as human-occupied space expanded at an exponential clip. Over the centuries, rivalries grew, as did star system navies. When widespread war finally came, it raged across entire sectors.
Mass bombardments of enemy planets took their toll. Much that had been built during the preceding thousand years was smashed in flashes of nuclear fusion.
A dark age descended. Eventually, a new Pax Galactica took hold. The return of stability brought with it a renaissance. Much knowledge that had been lost was regained.
Much, but not all.
On worlds across human space, parents told their children stories of a place where once dwelt knights and princesses, magicians and dragons, where bold warriors sallied forth to victory or defeat.
What the children did not learn was where this magical place could be found. The years of chaos had robbed them of that information. The stellar coordinates of Sol were lost.
And with them, the location of Planet Earth.
