Creating Aliens

So instead of writing today I’ve been snooping the web for resources to help develop some alien races. Here are two that I found today (I’ll also be added them to my “Links and Fun Stuff” page for future reference):

http://www.rbhs.w-cook.k12.il.us/mancoff/lifeform.html First Contact Report: Something every Science Fiction writer should do when creating an alien race.

UPDATE: This link no longer works. However you can check out this great article by i09 on How to Create a Scientifically Plausible Alien Lifeform.

http://www.abooks.com/alien Alien Name Generator: Pick if you want the name to start with a Vowel or Consonant and hit refresh to come up with more options.

Not much of a post I know, but I just wanted to share before I forgot. Talk to you soon.

    There's a whole host of name generators here http://www.seventhsanctum.com/index-name.php

    I can get lost in all these name generators and the possibilities they offer 🙂

    Hi Marc,

    I've added the Seventh Sanctum to my “Links and Fun Stuff” Page. I've used their site before because they have great generators. My personal favorites are the: Tavern Name, Quick Character Profile, Quick Story Idea, Science Fiction Tools, Science Fiction Government Name, and the Weapon Generator… just to name a few 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by.

Go ahead, leave a comment.
