This textbook develops an 18-week program designed to guide prospective students through creating their own speculative fiction story, that is, a science fiction, fantasy, or horror story. Designed for homeschoolers and small-school settings, this textbook draws on excerpts from dozens of speculative fiction authors and writing experts. It gives detailed information about genre, cultural world building, physical world building, plot, character, character arc, heroes, villains, sidekicks, bystanders, description, conflict and tension, editing and revising, “your first chapter,” voice, words and worldview, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Each chapter in the course contains exercises for students, including extra credit activities, in addition to guiding the creating of an individual short story.

    Orson Scott Card in his excellent book, How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy, said:
    … If the story is set in a universe that follows the same rules as ours, it’s science fiction. If it’s set in a universe that doesn’t follow our rules, it’s fantasy.
    Or in other words, science fiction is about what could be but isn’t, fantasy is about what couldn’t be.

    Speculative fiction is 1. Fiction (surprise!) 2. A literature that speculates or asks “What if?” questions about a great many things
