SFFS - 09 April 2016

This is the final round of SFFS ever. After 301 blog posts, 202 rounds of snippets shared, and some good friendships forged, it's time to bid farewell. Thank you to all the authors who have participated over the last almost-five years, and to all the readers who drop by each week. It's been a good ride. In the meantime, let's make this week a good one. The rules remain the same:

  1. Have the blog post live by 6 AM GMT . Work it out if you're in a different time zone.
  2. Make the SFFS blog post clearly identifiable to readers (e.g. use "SFFS" in the heading, or some variant). It is preferable that the link you post to this list leads directly to the blog post, so that readers do not have to play 'hunt-the-snippet'.
  3. Do not post anything else on your blog for at least 24 hours after posting the SFFS blog post.
  4. Keep the snippet's length below fifteen sentences. Any snippets found to be blatantly over this limit will be summarily removed from the week's list (no email warning or requests to shorten).
  5. If your excerpt comes from a book available online, be sure to provide a link within your snippet. If it's from a WIP, let us know what other books it may be related to, or any other titles you might have available.
  6. Come back on Saturday and visit all of our posted authors, to read some of the best new science fiction and fantasy writing that we have to offer.
