Experience the voices and artworks of the rising stars of science fiction. This annual collection is the place to go to read the greats of the future.
L. Ron Hubbard Presents: Writers of the Future Vol. 36 was released on April 7th 2020. It features the Writers and Illustrators of the Future contest winners alongside with authors you already know and love, such as: Nnedi Okorafor, Jody Lynn Nye, Katherine Kurtz, and L. Ron Hubbard himself. It is also jam packed with great writing and art advice from L. Ron Hubbard, Sean Williams, and Mike Perkins.
Every year the Writers of the Future Contest blindly selects the year’s best science fiction and fantasy from amateur authors, and the winners of the contest are collected into this stellar anthology.
Praise and critiques:
A well rounded and well written collection of new and emerging authors, Writers of the Future is the place to go for great contemporary science fiction and fantasy. There wasn’t a story in the collection I didn’t enjoy, even though I don’t typically care for fantasy. Both the selections of sci-fi and fantasy were deserving of winning the contest. The collection spans from fun robot stories to deep philosophical scenarios that question the nature of both humanity and God. While all of the stories in this anthology are wonderful a few really stuck out to me as works of brilliance, both contemplative and compelling. For me the highlights were: A Word that Means Everything, Educational Tapes, Stolen Sky, and As Able as Air.
Highly recommended for anyone looking for the next great voices in fantasy and science fiction.
5 of 5, a thoroughly enjoyable collection of stories.
