World-renowned novelist and short story author Henry James offers practical advice and considerable insight on what makes quality fiction, and how good writers can create it. A common theme seen in... More > Henry James' works is contrasting the naivete and untrammeled freedom of the New World with the knowledgeable but corrupt nature of Europe and the Old World.

Learn from one of the early Masters from the pulp magazine Golden Years. H. Bedford Jones routinely wrote over a million words per year and made the equivalent of possibly a 7-figure income in... More > today's money. All by writing and submitting stories to publishers. Yet he also wrote the handbook for high-speed, high-quality writing production that anyone can follow.

Per Bedford-Jones: "This book is not to be regarded as tyro. Under his own and assumed an authority on story-writing; by no means should it be read by anyone who aspires to literature, for, like Socrates, it will assuredly corrupt them and lead them into the worship of strange gods. It is destined only for those who desire to make a living by writing stories, in the hope that it may be of some benefit to them." Get Your Copy Now.< Less
