We want fresh, new content, original content by the creators.

Feel free to post it on Saturdays. Let the market decide if it's worthy.

Thanks to /u/Turil for pointing out that comments aren't posts. Let me clarify:

The goal is to keep this subreddit as spam free as possible and we all know how easy it is to game the system. To that end, we've restricted self-promotion to Saturdays. No other sub allows any self-promotion unless that's its purpose, but we thought it would be a good, fun thing for our subscribers.

Clear enough? If you're promoting your own original content, even if it's in response to someone's question, then do it via PM.

The alternative is people finding ways around the letter of the rule rather than working for the intent.

Thanks, and GL

I've not done an AMA here before so don't leave me hanging - fire away.

General background: Book 1 of the trilogy, One Word Kill, was released this year and is currently in the semi-finals of the Goodreads Choice Awards. I've got 10 fantasy books in print too, which contain sci-fi elements and are approaching 2 million sales, but this is my first truly sci-fi work.

.

The Impossible Times trilogy includes time travel and discussion of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. I've got a degree in physics and a math-based Ph.D but I think the books are pretty science-lite.

.

I live in the UK. I have 4 cats, 4 children, 4 books out this year, 4 complete trilogies, and probably 4 of something else, but I'll stop there. #AMA

I've watched the first 3 episodes and think I'll stay with it a little longer rose what happens. Never read the books. It seems to have a good cast. Let know if your enjoying or a big fan of the book!

Edit: I'm all for checking out the books but at this point will finish the first season

I love to read but I always struggle with creating images in my head based on a writer’s description. I have ADD and some processing learning disabilities so I imagine it’s connected to that. I’m 37 and it’s been a problem all my life despite my love to read.

I’m currently reading Rendezvous with Rama, I’m still pretty early in, and I’m having a hard time picturing this umbrella like stairwell that stretches 15 kilometers and the world that lives beyond. I did a fan art search to get a better idea but I started seeing things I feel like I shouldn’t see yet so I stopped since I don’t want any spoilers.

I have this problem with most descriptions. It’s probably why I steer more towards story based scifi then the heavy descriptive, which is usually the classics.

I thought it would be so cool to have a page where people submit their imagined designs of scifi related fiction. That way even some obscure stuff might end up with some entries. Or maybe something like that already exists? Maybe I have a great idea for an app!

"How to be Human" by Bruno Centofanti

In a world where artificial intelligence has dismantled the human contribution, Adelphe (Scottish BAFTA-winner, Sophie Kennedy Clark) has to help her sister Kimi (Louise Salter) to lose her humanity. Moreover, Kimi has to forget how to be human in order to fully disguise herself as an AI and survive in the only liveable place, “Cold City”. As they embark on this crossing, Kimi is forced to confront situations that put her sister, and her manufactured intuition, to the test. We learn through this unique perspective as we watch the two sisters pursue safety and refuge, made possible by the help and support of Maria (Les Misérables, Tony-award winner, Frances Ruffelle). In a world where the migration of displaced people is so present, this story reminds us of how being born in the right place and the right time can so often lead us to take our freedom and basic rights for granted.
