The future is true. It's going to happen, even if it doesn't. Cryosleep is a spin-off sub from /r/nosleep. Here you can post your original sci-fi and post apocalypse stories. It's like /r/nosleep but the constraints of the "believability" rule do not apply here.

**A place to discuss published SF**—novels, short stories, comics, images, and more. Not sure if a book is SF? Then post it! Science Fiction, Fantasy, Alt. History, Postmodern Lit., and more are all welcome here. **The key is that it be speculative, not that it fit some arbitrary genre guidelines**. Any sort of link or text post is welcome as long as it is about printed / text / static SF material.

So, who likes building teams? Who likes being picked last? Who cares. The idea is simple: The beginning of each month we hold a draft with randomly selected captains. Each team of writers has the rest of the month to develop a story, each member creating two or three paragraphs.

For geeks and nerds, artists, writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists alike: The creation of new worlds and new universes has been a key element of science fiction and fantasy. It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities. This subreddit is about sharing your worlds and discussing the many aspects of creating new ones.

It's like Ask Science, but for all universes other than our own. We use a [Watsonian point of view](http://fanlore.org/wiki/Watsonian_vs._Doylist), versus Doylist.
