For almost 15 years, this widely heralded, award-winning anthology series has been propelling readers into realms beyond time and space, parallel worlds and alternate realities and place at the infinite edges of the imagination. The impetus for these startling voyages has come from the best new writers of speculative fiction--the winners of the internationally acclaimed Writers of the Future Contest.

About the Author:
L. Ron Hubbard's legendary writing career spanned more than half a century of enduring literary achievement and creative influence, encompassing more than 250 published novels, novelettes, short stories and screenplays in every major genre. Among his best-selling and classic speculative fiction trendsetters are "Battlefield Earth," "Mission Earth," "Fear" and "Final Blackout."

Algis Budrys has been over the years, the Editor in Chief of Regency Books, Playboy Press, all the titles at Woodall's Trailer Travel publications and L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future.

From Publishers Weekly:
The newest installment in the venerable annual contest/anthology series started by the late Hubbard features stories by 17 previously unpublished writers and 17 winning illustrations from new artists. Like most anthologies, this volume is uneven: the majority of the material is passable, with a few outright duds. However, this edition also contains two bona fide masterpieces: Ray Roberts's "The Haunted Seed" tells the story of a deserted space ship whose computer is in love with a dead crewmember, while Ari Goelman's outstanding "Lost on the Road" is a lovingly constructed fairy tale in which a young faery slave eventually finds his family and freedom. A few brief pieces by the pros enhance the collection: Andre Norton offers advice to new writers ("Above all, a writer must be a reader"); H.R. Van Dongen gives tips on illustration ("Develop a composition designed to lead the eye into the picture"); and Hubbard, in a rambling previously published essay, urges writers to set challenges for themselves. There are better (and worse) anthologies on the shelf, but the Hubbard imprimatur will undoubtedly move copies.
