Outlines and Synopses
An outline is created prior to writing the novel, and
is used both as an aid in selling the book to a publisher and in
guiding the author in the creation of the book.
A synopsis is created after the novel is completed. Four
of the synopses below were created to accompany serialization installments in
Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine; the fifth the one
for Illegal Alien was created to aid my film agent in optioning
movie rights to the book.
