Halfbakery: Alternative Forms: Literary
HB SF short story anthology   (+5, -2)  [vote for, against]
Short tales set in a half-baked universe.

Some of us get on a bit of a literary bent when we post our ideas, building a world and a context and spinning a little tale wherein our idea lives.

Perhaps it would be nice to spin some of these out into longer tales, taking the idea, or several ideas, as jumping-off points to worlds where these are accepted or emerging technologies.

Then compile the best into a book.

As an addict of the printed word, I must endorse this idea (+)

As a halfbaker, and a cruel literary critic (losers go in the recycling bin since I currently have no fireplace) I fear the result. Let's start with an e-edition, although if somebody publishes a 'zine I will provide subscription support.

Alright, I have resurrected an idea I pulled because it was not finished yet solely for porpoises of this project. Stomp on it as you will, please (link).

[+] and then it would be nice to have a halfbaker read it to you!

Thanks for the props Auscan. Would this be a category on Fictionpress or someplace similar? I like that idea.

I had this very idea a few years back; never had the time / willpower to bake it. I suggest also adding some halfbaked ideas hidden in secret messages in the book for those in the know to find.
