    1 thought on “Writers of the Future: 29 (L Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future)”

    1. Finding an interesting, new author is a fantastic experience, like discovering a new favorite restaurant or traveling to a place you’ve never been before. It is full of exploration, of discovery, and the refreshing feel of something new and fresh.Imagine, then, what it’s like to find one book with 12 interesting new authors, all at once. It’s exactly what you get with Writers of the Future Volume 29. As a collection of the fiction, it’s a cornucopia of clever tales and excellent writing, [...]

    2. A thoroughly enjoyable collection of contemporary science fiction!(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review through Library Thing’s Early Reviewer program.)L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future contest – now entering its thirtieth year, it’s one of the longest-running short story contests still in existence – attracts thousands of submissions a year. From this, a panel of judges selects just thirteen essays for publication in the annual anthology. Also included [...]

    3. Unique and original.This collection of short stories will take you around the Galaxy with the Planetary Scouts, scare you half to death with the Dream Eater and have you laughing out loud with Cop for a Day (and this only 3 of the 13 stories!). If you need escape fiction - something to get away from the world as we know it, you will have fun with this. The unexpected endings and suspence keep the pages turning. Have fun with it!!

    4. This exciting anthology is a collection of science fiction stories by talented, new writers and illustrators who were selected from The Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests. These original stories and illustrations are a fine example of what readers can anticipate in the future of the science fiction genre. This stories in this collection are imaginative, and some provide glimpses into an advanced future world and its repercussions on the existence of our society and our humanity. At [...]

    5. This book is a collection of short stories selected from new and upcoming writers in the Science Fiction and Fantasy. The first portion was all the Sci Fi stories and the second portion was suppose to be the fantasy, but it was more horror and steampunk stories. No swords and elves here. That’s alright, but call it what it is, horror and steampunk, not fantasy. I know a fair chunk of fantasy fans who would likely attack you for calling a steampunk novel a fantasy novel. If we did that we would [...]

    6. A bit of a mixed bag. I found most of the stories to be pretty enjoyable, but a few really stood out (for better or worse!). "The Grande Complication" is a really fascinating concept, and I get the impression that the idea of a clockwork world somewhere just behind the fabric of reality--governing everything from the seasons to the migration of birds with its rhythm--is something that's going to stick with me for a long time. That said, I really struggled to get past the fact that the story is m [...]

    7. First story about body swapping and spying very cool.Story twoPlanetary ScoutsDetermining if alien planets are livable and do not possess intelligent life already. The entire story is good however our scouts go from one ruthlessly lethal planet to the next, each time striving to reach mission 25 and retire. They don't quite make it to mission 25, but hey they do get to retire.Story 3 a heart felt story told from the perspective of an autistic man. It was very good and if people could see passed [...]

    8. This volume of prize-winning Science Fiction And Fantasy short stories by different authors was a very good read. I read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy in my younger years, but have kind of gotten away from it. I liked the mix of stories, artwork (also prizewinners) and articles with a writing guidance bend. My favorite stories were: Planetary Scouts by Stephen Sottong, a well written log type story of planetary scout adventures. The Ghost Wife Of Arlington by Marilyn Guttridge, a haunting story of [...]

    9. * First Reads advanced copy*I found Writers of the Future Volume 29 to be highly enjoyable. All of the stories were well written. I can definitely see how each author was able to win this contest. However, some of the stories did not pique my interest. The stories just did not grab my interest. I will say that my favorite stories in the book were "The Grande Complication", which amazed with its level of detail, "Gonna Reach Out and Grab You", "Vestigial Girl", which I found emotionally riveting [...]

    10. This latest volume in the series features a good mix of sci-fi stories from unknown writers. The stories are chosen by a panel of established writers in the field, who obviously know how to spot who are the next big things in sci-fi fiction. I enjoyed most of the stories in the collection and found it to be a great book to return to when I needed a palate cleanser after reading something else. As with all collections from different authors, you'll have some you really enjoy (my favorite was "Pla [...]

    11. "Writers of the Future" is a must-read for all science-fiction / speculative fiction lovers. Each world is portrayed in a unique, majestic fashion that I easily feel a part of - as if I was in that second body, on an unknown planet as a Planetary Scout, or a detective watching victims' last memories. The authors that have been selected for this volume absolutely deserve their works to be published. I enjoy reading the short stories wherever I am - my bed, the library, my spaceship, my kitchen - [...]

    12. I won this book in a first-reads giveaway, thank you! I really enjoyed this book. I love novels, but I also like short stories occasionally.I love stories with a twist, War Hero was really good. Another one I really enjoyed was Vestigial Girl. Holy Days was very original. My favorite story was Dreameater by Andrea Stewart. It is the story of a little girl, Alexis, and her mother Linda. I would like for Ms. Stewart to continue this story in a novel. This story leaves you wondering what happens to [...]

    13. If you’ve never read any of the Writers of the Future anthologies, and you’re a speculative fiction fan, you should put them on your “to read” list right away. Every year, Galaxy Press publishes an anthology of over a dozen sci-fi an fantasy novelettes by new authors. While I’ve found the quality of the writing varies from story to story, I’ve never regretted purchasing or reading any of the anthologies. So here’s my review of Volume 29, published in 2013.WAR HERO by Brian Trent“ [...]

    14. I received this book for free as part of the First Reads program in exchange for my honest opinion.This collection was excellent! For those unfamiliar with the Writers of the Future contest (as I was) it is a contest where anyone can submit stories. The only restriction is that you cannot have professionally published a novel or more than 3 short stories. The winning writers receive a cash prize and have their story published in this annual collection. They've been doing this for 29 years and I [...]

    15. Liked several of the stories, for example ”War Hero”, ”Planetary Scouts”, ”Twelve Seconds” and ”The Ghost Wife of Arlington”.

    16. I received this book free as a Good reads First Reads. There are three reasons to read anthologies. First is because you like the subject matter. Writers of the Future Volume 29 was no exception for me. I have always loved the Fantasy & Sci-fi genres. (Just take a look at my book list.) This book fits right in that itch for me with its stories and enticing illustrations.The second reason is you can get full stories in bite-sized pieces. When you're quite busy with work & kids, being able [...]

    17. Like most anthologies, it had good stories and bad stories. Most of them I consider solid but not exceptional. One particularly awesome one, one fairly horrible one, but the rest were worth reading, but nothing to write home about.Short synopses, in order:A war hero has a very confusing resurrection.An old planetary explorer shows the new guy the ropesAn autistic man solves a mystery engendered by atypical post-life recordingsAn article on writing by L Ron Hubbard (some of the advice is dated, s [...]

    18. Once I started reading this new volume, I must say that I enjoyed it even more than the last one!! I enjoyed every story, but my two favorite were The Ghost Wife of Arlington, about Death's mistress, and Holy Days, which speculates about some extra special days being added to the calendar. What if there was one day a year when all ailments were healed, just for the day?I also really appreciated the helpful articles in the book. There is an article for illustrators by Larry Elmore, Journey For a [...]

    19. Avatar & this summer my son took me to see the Wolverine are what I rate # 1 schifi. Both I believe were taken from books. These writers like when my family/I played sports I realize are the “superstars”, judging by the cool contest U sponsor. I of course weren’t’ thrilled with all the short stories.I’ll use the old school saying U always save the best for last, for me this was true in this book. These 2 were my fav. Dreameater; the horrors of some children’s life (Alexis) when t [...]

    20. I thought I had written a review of this when I finished reading it some time ago, but somehow managed not to have it posted here so, in short, yet another in a glowing series of Sci-Fi collections. Each tale is a winner, both figuratively and literally, so you can not go wrong with this Galaxy Press collection. I especially liked "The Ghost Wife of Arlington" about Death's mistress and the article for illustrators by Larry Elmore, Journey For a New Artist. And L. Ron Hubbard's contribution "The [...]

    21. This latest annual volume (I can't believe it's been going for 29 years now!) in the Writers of the Future series is another good collection of stories from new writers. A couple of them struck me as being a little self-consciously over-written, and a couple seemed a little too long for their subjects, but it's a very strong collection overall. My favorite, by far, was an old-fashioned story called "Planetary Scouts" by Stephen Sottong, but I also particularly enjoyed stories by Eric Cline, Kodi [...]

    22. Writers of the Future Volume XXIX, presented by L. Ron Hubbard, contains thirteen of the best stories from the Writers of the Future international writers’ program and is illustrated by the winners in the Illustrators of the Future international illustrators’ program. It also has essays on writings & illustrations done by L. Ron Hubbard, Nnedi Okorafor, and Larry Elmore.We’ve been remodeling a house and preparing for a move and Writers of the Future has not left my side. Every spare mo [...]

    23. I read Writers of the Future, in exchange for honest review from Business 2 Blogger. I received a paperback book. The book was also published by Galaxy Press, LLCThe book provides 13 stories from the Writer's of the Future International Writers' Program, in addition to three essays on writing and illustration. Before each story, there is a bio of both the author and illustrator. The first story was War Hero by Brian Trent and illustrated by Jon Eno. Wow, the story was amazing. It was a science-f [...]

    24. Ever wonder who the best new writers to watch for? Look no further than the Writers of the Future Volume 29.I purchased this book because I wanted an idea as to what stories were accepted, as I too have been submitting to the quarterly Writers of the Future contest.Like most anthologies or short story collections, not all stories connected with me. But, what few I didn't like someone else undoubtedly will, and the ones I liked outweighted the ones that didn't. Hence the 5-star rating.Among some [...]

    25. Full disclosure: free review copy received via .I've purchased all the Writers of the Future volumes since number one. I have never been disappointed, and this latest collection is no exception. All of the judges who select the stories each year are top best selling authors in speculative fiction and they know how to pick excellence in this field. What really struck me about so many of the stories this round were the strong, stylized voices of the authors and unique imagery. Many contain edge-of [...]

    26. Disclosure: I received this book for free through First Reads.I found, as I read this collection, that I'm not really able to jump into and just accept the worlds created in shorts stories - like they need to be.In the standard questions of writing - who, what, when, where, why and how - these short stories only answered the "who" and "what" questions, leaving the others to just be accepted. I mostly found myself asking "why is this happening" and "how is this happening." I came away wanting, a [...]

    27. Science Fiction American Idol For those who love science fiction and fantasy, this book is great fun. Previously unpublished authors compete, with twelve selected to be published in this mass media edition each year. This year's edition ranges the gamut from typical scifi planetary exploration, human regeneration, governments run amok, to fantasy/super natural devils, shades, and ghosts. At its best, this type of literature explores 'What If' questions. What if our beloved deceased could come ba [...]

    28. I won a copy of this book through a First Reads giveaway.The cover artwork is amazing and I really liked the illustrations included with each story. I can't say I liked all the stories equally, but I do feel that they were all well-written. I would love to read more stories from these authors. I skipped the essays "The Manuscript Factory", "The Sport of Writing" and "Journey for a New Artist". I was only interested in reading the sci-fi/fantasy short stories and I felt like these essays should [...]

    29. As with any diverse collection of stories, there are some hits and misses along the way. For me, the stories that got me the most excited were Planetary Scouts and the Vestigial Girl. Scouts for it's fantastic world building (easy to wrap your mind around and allows your mind to conjure up the missing pieces), and Vestigial Girl for it's ability to make the protagonist sympathetic, distinct, and riveting in so short a time. The stories that didn't quite hit the mark for me were Dream Eater (more [...]
