A pleasure to meet you, DarkLordoftheSith. (Man, my fingers wanted to insert some blank spaces in there!) We have a thriving science fiction community here, not limited to those who write it but to others who merely read it, like me.

What good ones do you especially like?

Maryn, glad you found us

Welcome to AW, DarkLordoftheSith :) It's nice to meet you!

AW is, in my opinion, the premier writing place on the nets. It's chockfull of information regarding all aspects of the craft and business of writing, and home to a global community of writerly folk. The forums are large and it can be easy to get lost/overwhelmed at first but if you take your time to explore you'll acclimate quickly.

Please carefully read the Newbies Guide you were linked to when you registered, as well as the stickied threads at the top of each forum page. They will help you understand the forum rules, as well as the etiquette and culture of the different spaces within AW. They'll also help you avoid potentially embarrassing newbie mistakes.

We have a whole lot of scifi writers here. You can find many of them in our Science Fiction | Fantasy room. You might also enjoy our Movies, TV and Theater room. Plenty of good discussion about the latest shows, and particularly about the latest science fiction & fantasy ones.

Explore, lurk if you want, join in conversations you find fun or interesting if you want, make friends, enjoy yourself :D

See you around the boards!
Izz
