100+ places to market your science fiction book

Science fiction is one of the most popular genres of fiction, with a large pool of titles and a large fanbase. While not as young as genres like paranormal romance, science fiction was not initially received as a platform for literary works. Times have changed, however, and perceptions of what it is have shifted. Along the way, it has spawned numerous subgenres like cyberpunk, steampunk, dystopian science fiction, young adult science fiction, and science fiction that does not quite look like science fiction – just to name a few.

Update: The Post-Apocalyptic/Dystopia-related links in this post have been removed, as we are making a post dedicated entirely to those genres. Thanks!

A work in progress post! Links are continually being added!
