About the Author
L. Ron Hubbard (1911 ¿ 1986), often referred to by his initials, LRH, was an American author and the founder of the Church of Scientology. Hubbard established his career as a writer with science fiction and fantasy novels, including the novel Battlefield Earth, which was adapted into a feature film in 2000. Starting in the 1950s, Hubbard created a system called Dianetics, which is a wide-ranging set of doctrines and practices that became the foundation of the religious movement Scientology.
What People are Saying About This
The contest has changed the face of Science Fiction.
The untapped talents of new writers continue to astonish me and every WOTF (Writers Of The Future) volume provides a well-spring of the greatest energy put forth by the ambitious writers of tomorrow.
This has become a major tributary to the new blood in fantastic fiction.
From cutting edge high-tech to evocative fantasy, this book's got it all.
I recommend the 'Writers of the Future' Contest at every writers' workshop I participate in.
