Editorial Reviews

Booklist
The Writers of the Future Con test has now rounded out a quarter-century. Along with its companion, Illustrators of the Future, it continues to play a valuable role in ferreting out new talent. Stories in this volume include fantasy about a witchcraft contest, a detective trying to solve crimes in a world in which a giant computer can alter reality, a space-salvage freelancer with more problems than prospects, missionaries trying to bring peace to a planet on which war is essential to the life cycle, and an immortal woman who may be freed from her curse only if she kills. Added work by contest-winning illustrators, essays on writing and illustrating, and a cogent introduction by the editor make for good reading and a good sampling of where the field may be going. --(Roland Green)
From the Publisher

...the best-selling SF anthology series of all time.—Locus Magazine

The most enduring forum  to showcase new talent in the genrePublishers Weekly

The Writers of the Future Contest has not only provided a place where new writers could break into print for the first time—but it also has a record of nurturing and discovering writers who have gone on to make their mark in the science fiction field. Long may it continue!—Neil Gaiman, Author

Prior to L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest starting, there was no field which enabled the new writer to compete with his peers—other new writers.—Kevin J. Anderson, Author

Here's skill and storytelling fervor aplenty—these writers of the future have already arrived!—Robert Silverberg, Author

This collection shows why I'm happy to be a judge for the Writers of the Future Contest—it always finds great stories by the new writers who will be winning Hugo and Nebula Awards a few years from now.—Tim Powers, Author

Writers of the Future is a terrific program for new writers, and goodness knows, there are few enough of those. It has my heartiest support and unqualified recommendation.—Terry Brooks, Author

A very generous legacy from  L. Ron Hubbard—a fine, fine fiction writer—for the writers of the future. —Anne McCaffrey, Author

Product Details

Meet the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
