    Hi, all. I'm a science fantasy writer. I came to lurk and ask questions. I'm hoping to learn alot so that I can make my novel a little more realistic.

    I do love science, though, particularly astrobiology. I love reading about space and all the different planets out there that we've discovered. But I've still got alot to learn.

    Hello and welcome to the Science Forum!
    Be certain to check out the Astronomy & Cosmology and Biology subfora.

    Have you already written science-fiction stories or is it your first attempt?


    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    This'll be my first attempt at sci-fi elements. I usually stick to pure fantasy. But this time I've got some divine beings who are placing humankind onto various planets in a series of experiments. I thought it would be boring just to stick them with another yellow sun. So I'm trying to design different races of humans who live on planets with different conditions from our own. Instead of the usual "these people have blue skin because they're aliens" fare I'm hoping to have some actual scientific theory behind why my people look the way they do.

    Thanks for the recommendations, I'll definently be checking those forums out.

    Welcome to the forum. I should be delighted to assist you in developing your aliens - my consultancy fees are quite modest.
