Martin, Lev Grossman, Neil Gaiman, Michael Moorcock, Catherynne M. Valente, and Karen Joy Fowler, to name a few.

Praise for Wonderbook:

"Jammed with storytelling wisdom." -- Fast Company 's Co.Create blog

"This is the kind of book you leave sitting out for all to see . . . and the kind of book you will find yourself picking up again and again." -- Kirkus Reviews online

"If you're looking for a handy guide to not just crafting imaginative fiction like sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, but to writing in general, be sure to pick up a copy of Steampunk Bible author Jeff Vandermeer's lovingly compiled Wonderbook ."nbsp; --Flavorwire

"Jeff Vandermeer and Jeremy Zerfoss have created a kaleidoscopically rich and beautiful book about fiction writing."nbsp; -- Star Tribune

"Because it is so layered and filled with text, tips, and links to online extras, this book can be read again and again by both those who want to learn the craft of writing and those interested in the process of others." -- Library Journal
