There is more science fiction and fantasy on TV and in the movies than ever before, and while these genres may seem like opportunities for a writer's imagination to run wild, in fact their stories benefit from rules and parameters. These guidelines help ground a writer's fancies and create a recognizable world for the characters. But coming up with the rules of magic and science fiction is more difficult than it seems. These professionals, who have created detailed, grounded worlds, tell how they did it: Deric Hughes (Arrow, The Flash, Warehouse 13), Jose Molina (Magic: The Gathering, The Tick), Julie Benson and Shawna Benson (Wu Assassins, The 100), Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex), Gennifer Hutchison (Better Call Saul, The Strain), Chris Dingess (Doom Patrol, Being Human, Manifest Destiny comic), Kieron Gillen (The Wicked & The Divine, Die), Adam Rogers (Wired magazine). Moderated by TV and comics writer Ben Blacker (DC's Hex Wives, The Thrilling Adventure Hour).
