Another service that I perform for writers and readers is to moderate the horror forum at Unified SciFi Forums, an online site for discussing the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror. For a modern writer, connecting to readers is a prerequisite for selling your work, and it’s also fun. Most folks who come to Unified SciFi are readers and movie buffs, and the discussions are pretty freewheeling.
A common thread on the site comes from people who remember a plot or some of the characters from a story they enjoyed, but who can’t recall the author’s name or the title. The Unified crew is pretty good about helping out in such cases.
You can check out the site at Unified SciFi Forums. You have to register, but that’s free and is just to keep a count of how many people use the service.
