Most science fiction authors plant a story’s roots in scientific reality—or at least they should if they want their work to be successful. Panelists Dan Koboldt(Author—Gateways to Alissia), Diana Pho (Editor—Tor Books) and Chuck Wendig (Author—Star Wars: Aftermath; Zer0es/Invasive) share their insights on creating realistic, technically accurate worlds that imbue stories with scientific accuracy without putting readers to sleep.
