After reading Donna's post, I discovered S.E. Smith's HUNTER'S CLAIM, a sci-fi romance (via Veronica Scott's column Sci-Fi Encounters at the USA Today romance blog). I sampled the first chapter. So far, my impression is that the story doesn't totally abide by Donna's advice of show, not tell, when it comes to worldbuilding (of course, your mileage may vary).…the Number One killer of SFR stories, like their SF counterparts, is backstory, oodles of it, in info dumps of epic proportions in the beginning of the book. This passes for “worldbuilding”. Stop. Let me discover the world your characters inhabit, little by little, not all at once. Show me, don’t tell me.
Yet the book hit #1 in the science fiction romance category at Amazon (#4 at the time of this post) and has 182 reviews (at the time of this post). Publication date: January 8, 2014.
