Welcome to h2g2 Fiction. h2g2 is a great site, full of facts, people, and.. things, but when it comes to fiction, it's a bit lacking. That's why this page is here.

Fiction Central has now been exhumed by Baxter Horowitz- an entity made up of Terran and [HPB].
It is hoped that I/we can continue the standard set by our predecessors, Lance Boyles and Peregrin.
-Baxter Horowitz

To read the stories, click on the link above - 'Stories A-Z by Author' and click on the link of the story you want to read.

We want YOUR creative writing. Stories - narrative first/second/third person perspective stuff.

Other writing that doesn't fit into the Edited Guide guidelines, and aren't fictitious stories, can go to:

  • The Alternative Writing Workshop - the official alternative - providing support for writing that doesn't fit the Guide guidelines.
  • AGG/GAG/CAC (Another Galaxy Guide / Galactic Anomolies Group / Committee for Alien Content) - this is an alternative to the Alternative Writing Workshop - they promote alternative writing and publish it in the Post.
  • The Post - h2g2's weekly newsletter - good for news/current stories, human interest and regular articles.
  • UnderGuide - h2g2 sister organisation to the Edited Guide, which tries to fill the gaps left by the Edited Guide.

You also might like to visit Get Writing. This alternative DNA site brings together writers to exchange work whether you are interested in writing/publishing novels, poetry, essays, scripts, or anything else. Get Writing closed on 24th March 2005 but the old pages remain.

"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. It has been compiled and recompiled many times and under many different editorships. It contains contributions from countless numbers of travellers and researchers."
