Got a book I want to plug — and no, I’m not in it. It’s L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, Volume 29, edited by Dave Wolverton. It’s a 474-page mass market paperback, it goes $7.99, and the ISBN number is ISBN 978-1-61986-200-5.
So why am I recommending it? Because I’ve been one of the judges at the last 4 Writers of the Futures Pageants, I think they’re producing quality young writers, and I’m not just giving that lip service. The first 5 issues of the magazine I edit, Galaxy’s Edge will feature 14 stories by current and past Writers of the Future contestants — a couple are established superstars like Eric Flint, but most are new names that won’t be familiar to you now (but will be in the coming years.) Anyway, give it a look.
