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.

    Yes, what's wrong with these wanna be writers that rewrite the whole book and spoil it for others. Either you liked it and recommend it or NOT.

    It's a book of short story by up and coming writers who are sure to bring us more great stories in the future. Right know I really want to tell you my favorite let’s just say there are a lot of baskets. I do not know why but this one really stuck with me and I am sure it will stick with you too. This is a great book for everyone especially if you are busy and love to get some reading in, or if you are a book lover and want to know who is up and coming.

    Pretty good

    Some of these stories were better than others. One was so long and boring I finally just skipped it. Admittedly I don't read much sci-fi, but sometimes a bargain book tempts me outside my usual genre. I was especially NOT interested in the various "advice to writers" sections. Skipped right over those. But one thing in favor of good sci-fi: it leaves you with unforgettable images. In my case that was the first story in this collection: "Of Woven Wood" by Marie Croke, and the penultimate one: "The Poly Islands" by Gerald Warfield. Some people just have such great imaginations.

    Still hooked on this series!

    I have been eagerly awaiting each issue of "Writers of the Future" for years now. This series began in 1987 or so, and I discovered it ten years later. It never fails to deliver great speculative fiction from new authors. The editors select monthly winners and them publish them annually in this book.

    Exceptional collection

    Some of speculative fiction'spotential up and coming stars showcase why they deserve attention while WOTF proves its reputation for finding stars.

    Plot spoilers

    I'd rather read a "plot spoiler" review since b&n and the publishers often don't provide enough "jacket" info that you would get with a tactile book. If you are not smart enough to figure out"plot spoiler" reviews are longer than "great", "awesome", " bad", or "horrible" SHAME ON YOU!
