Looking for a good writer (must be native-English born) who loves science fiction and who is well read in the genre to write an article about each subgenre of science fiction. If you want to qualify for this job, you not only need to be a good writer, but you need to be well-versed in science fiction and enjoy reading it. Names like Asimov, Card, Heinlein, Simons, Pohl, Orwell, Herbert, Gibson, Stephenson, Vernge, etc should mean something to you.

I need 40 or so articles (about 500/600 words each), which each being a highly detailed explanation/examination of each major subgenre of science fiction.

I'm looking for writers who are actually interested in science fiction and read it as a hobby. Your passion and knowledge for the subject should come out in your writing. Native born English speakers only. Sorry, that means no filipinos, indians, africans, etc. Writers with some personality, panache, and sarcastic humor will be preferred.

If you don't send me this message, you won't be considered for the job. The more entertained I am by your letter and the more detail you give, the more likely you are to get this job!
