Synopsis

Twentieth Anniversary Edition with Contributions from Joe Hill and Owen KingPart memoir, part masterclass by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer's craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have.
