This is a forum for everybody loves sci-fi
#2050029 by Chris Breva- Grandpa?


As the name implies this forum is a place to discuss science - fiction, enjoy activities associated with science-fiction, and become better authors of science - fiction. As a student in school I was not one of the social elite. However, without my knowledge a fellow student suggested a new category of "Most Likely" for our yearbook and nominated me. It was "Most Likely to Publish a best seller". Well I haven't surpassed Patterson yet but I'm in the race with four books published by a traditional publisher.Writing science-fiction has been a passion all of my life because we are not merely authors, but we're inventors as well. Today's science - fiction technology is tomorrow's science fact. Who remembers writing about doing their shopping from home by computer say 1975? A recent study from Gallop said over 50 percent of all shopping today is by internet! So keep inventing!

I have a few images being made. They will be posted here. The following images are to use by our marks the fifteenth Anniversary of this great site. To celebrate Chris' Science Fiction Forum and our associated group Outworld are hosting s science-fiction writing challenge.

September is a big month for WDC. September is the month in which it all started. September 2015 marks the fifteenth anniversarry of WDC and there are all kinds of activities] planned around the site. We are no exception. We are going to hold a science-fiction short story writing contest. Here are the details as explained by our Co-Chair, Mr. A.J. Caesar.

World Domination

You're a great story master bent on world domination of the WDC Community, but you need to enlist the help of a main character to achieve your mission.
First, you must fill in your characters' bio just like you did when you joined WDC.
You can choose either a hero or villain to be your protagonist. Once you fill out
their bio you can write either a short story with them as the main character or just a brief introduction into their world. The winning characters will then take over the WDC Community.

This is a two round contest event. So please make sure you read both round's
rules.
