For example, in "Beast," pages 3 through 9 inclusive, illustrated, by Jon Gustafson, a farmer tractor crash victim is uniquely intercepted by a Tyrannosaurus Rex and a traveler. The book rates an 8 instead of a 9 or 10 because it could have had at least one startling story in it. Since Stanley's short story, CHILDREN OF CRECHE, back in another earlier volume, there have been some near-contenders to such a slam-bang ending, but none have come even close.

What has been said about the. L. Writers of the Future.

We were put up in a hotel for a week and treated to a writing workshop taught by these and other legendary pros. At the end of the week, we had the annual awards ceremony in New York.

Reviews: 3
If you are thinking that this is just a collection of stories from the Writers of the Future contest, then you are mistaken. As the cover indicates, there are 13 stories plus 4 essays that are included in this almost 500 page book. As we'd expect from a contest under Hubbard's name, one of the essays is by him. The 13 stories are quite varied and I won't repeat the brief introduction to the plots done by another reviewer. I liked 4 pieces enough to consider finding other writing by their authors. "Home Grown" by William Brown, "Like Iron Unicorns" by Paul D. Batteiger, "Guildmaster" by Dan Dysan, and "The Quality of Wetness" by Ilsa J. Bick. I thought these storylines were original but the characters were familiar enough to really hook me. "Atlantis Ohio" by Mark Siegel was a cool idea but the story just goes on and one far too long. So if you like hard science fiction, social fiction, or alternative pasts or presents, there is some story in here you may enjoy. So why only 4 stars? Frankly I think the essays could be left out, the price dropped a bit on the book, and it would be a much better buy overall. People who want insight into the craft or writing and direction toward publication can get a book geared toward that.
"Presents" L. Ron Hubbard, and the "writers of the future" are secondary. Too bad the talent of these writers ends up being soiled by association with Hubbard's name.

Offers of cash "awards," plus publication, is too much to resist for some. Still, they should have known better.
Small Black
the only thing these stories have in common is that they're all good. the volume really spans the gamut from fantasy to hard sf, action-adventure to mind-bending logical teasers. there really are no weak stories in this collection.
