Writers of the Future, Volume XXII

Volume 22 of L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future is now out. This volume contains writing essays by Hubbard, Orson Scott Card, and myself, plus one on art by Bob Eggleton; mine is called "Eight Things New Writers Need to Know."

But the meat of the volume is the award-winning stories from the latest year of the Writers of the Future contest. I was a judge for the grand prize this year (helping select the year's overall winner from the four quarterly finalists), and I was simply blown away by the quality of the stories, every one of which was first rate.

You can buy the anthology here, or at your favorite bookstore.

And you can find out about entering the contest -- which has helped make the careers of such writers as Stephen Baxter, Dave Wolverton, James Alan Gardner, Eric Flint, Sean Williams, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Robert Reed, Howard V. Hendrix, and 2006 Hugo winner David D. Levine -- here.
