From the author of "How to Write a Damn Good Novel", this book offers powerful advanced techniques in fiction writing - how to build suspense, create fresher, more interesting characters, and achieve greater reader sympathy, empathy and identification. Quoting a range of writers from Stephen King and Kafka to Peter Benchley and Stephen Crane, this is a practical, readable, down to earth and concise book which analyses what makes good (and commercial) fiction work and shows how to apply this understanding in an author's own writing. It is a must for any serious writer.
