The domain name had been held back by a finance company called Domain Capital due to a defaulted loan, and Ruddell contacted two sci-fi geek friends to turn it into a business.
Fast forward to today, and ScienceFiction.com has launched as a way for fans to access information about all things science fiction, ranging from movies, TV shows, games, books, comic books and technology.
Or, as Ruddell puts it (and not us): the TechCrunch of Science Fiction.
The goal of ScienceFiction.com is to offer top quality news, reviews and interviews about the world of sci-fi and fantasy.
Ruddell tells me hell handle the business side of things, while one of his partners, who he adds has a journalism degree and has been writing for 20+ years, will take care of the editorial part of the equation. He also says they have a couple of other writers lined up and ready to go.
