The Best of Writers of the Future

(1992)
(A book in the Writers of the Future series)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
L Ron Hubbard established the 'Writers of the Future" Contest in late 1983, offering new and aspiring writers a chance to have their works seen and read. Since that beginning, the imaginative works from these exceptionally talented new writers in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror have been published in one of the "L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future" anthologies and have provided readers an escape to new worlds ever since.

As was L. Ron Hubbard's intention, many of these talents have gone on to become established writers. Now for the first time, sixteen creative stories from the first eight volumes that helped launch successful careers have been assembled, providing hours of reading entertainment--your ticket to spellbinding adventures across the galaxy.

The writers in this book include many you now know, who were-in most cases-first published in one of the earlier anthologies. These names include: James Alan Gardner, Karen Joy Fowler, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Robert Reed, Dean Wesley Smith, Ray Aldridge, Jamil Nasir, M Shayne Bell, Jo Beverley, Leonard Carpenter, J R Dunn, Nancy Farmer, Astrid Julian, Michael H Payne, Bruce Holland Rogers and Dave Wolverton.

This first-rate collection includes works from judges Anne McCaffrey, Frederik Pohl and Tim Powers, who if given the opportunity to enter this contest at the inception of their careers, would have done so with these well-told tales. Also included are invaluable tips on writing from Frank Herbert and Algis Budrys.
