Item Name/Description: Fiction Critique from a Hard Science/Technology Perspective
Starting Bid: $15
Auction Ending: April 13th, 11 pm
oops, I meant EDT.
Notes: I will read up to 50 manuscript-formatted pages [*] of a fiction work or of a description of a fictional scenario and give you my opinion of it from a technical perspective, within two weeks of receipt.
I can tell you whether your science violates the laws of physics, whether your punnet squares should be punted or not, and in general help you construct a physical universe that is consistent. I can also tell you how a scientist or engineer character might react in a catastrophe ("Shit, the satellite is on fire!" is a catastrophe I have first hand experience with) or to an example of technical idiocy.
I am an electrical engineer with a bachelor's degree from MIT, enrolled in a Master's degree program at Columbia University, and have been working in industry for five years.
[*] Double-spaced, 12 point Times New Roman or Courier.
