This is where Ed Patterson posts his SF writing.
Non main stream writers that you might enjoy:
– Ed Sutter – his stories are set in Arizona though they end up going a lot of interesting places.
– Laer Carrol – I find his Shapechanger tales very entertaining and original. Many separate stories of 1-2 books that he is tying together into a broader work. His WordPress site and his writing encouraged me to start this site. I have a lot to learn to catch up to him. A good portion of his stories are on his website which I have linked. I think that you will go to Amazon to get the whole story. A great try before you buy opportunity.
– Laurence Dahners – Exciting stories that I stay up late to read instead of reading David Weber. His Ell Donsaii stories (6 so far) is the best new series that I have found in years. Tau Ceti, the sixth in the series, is the best so far. I will be using what I learn from his writing style to improve my writing.
All three have technical / professional backgrounds that make the stories better.
I would appreciate comments telling me about other authors that you enjoy.
