Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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

"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

"These first-rate stories show incredible variety." —Robert J. Sawyer, Author

"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

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.

Every year, this contest successfully delivers a new set of interesting, entertaining stories well worth the read, for sci-fi readers and aspiring writers looking to learn alike.  Highly recommend.
Angie_Lisle More than 1 year ago
I avoided this series for a long time because L Ron Hubbard's religious cult scares me. Then, I received two volumes (29 and 30) in exchange for reviews and now, I'm reading the series backwards.  This volume of the anthology has been my least favorite to-date simply because I didn't understand a couple of the stories. Too much was left for me to infer. On the other hand, Not In the Flesh by Adam Colston has been one of my favorite stories that I've seen in this series (and is by favorite story in this volume). And, since I love the exposure to new writers, I've already purchased Volume 25.
