Welcome to the Independent Science Fiction Writers website. A place where self-published writers of science fiction – fantasy and horror can meet, pass ideas, promote their work and help each other out. It’s not just a place to pitch ideas but a place to meet new friends and hopefully grow a community that will show the publishing world we are serious and here to stay. To become a member all you need to do is have independently published a short story, novella or novel. At the link above, you will find the full rules and how to join the ISFW community. It is our hope that this website will become a handy tool in all your writing endeavors.

Matt Maxwell is the creator/writer of the western/horror comic series STRANGEWAYS, which has been ongoing since 2008. He is also the author of the recent short story collection TUG ON THE RIBBON AND OTHER STORIES which ranges from magical-realist near-future SF to the dark and smoky LUNA SANGRE which blends science fiction and fantasy to CRUNCH TIME which is a blackly humorous look at office life in the time of the zombie apocalypse.
He is also the author of RAGNAROK SUMMER, which will begin online serialization in spring of 2011. The second STRANGEWAYS book, entitled THE THIRSTY is due for printing towards the end of the year. He is also hard at work on the third STRANGEWAYS collection, entitled THE LAND WILL KNOW.
At one time or another, he was a digital animator and visual effects artist, an office monkey in a university thinktank, the guy who got jammed quarters out of your arcade machines, direct-mail stuffer for a televangelist you've probably been spammed by, teacher of 3D animation and thanatology (though not at the same time), has driven across the US once that he remembers and knows where to find the last of the wild V-8s.
