Writers of the Future

I've been reading last year's Writers of the Future (I'm afraid I'm a year behind -- the latest edition just came out last month).

I am really enjoying it.

The first two stories were complete winners.

Sometimes I find SciFi short stories annoying - self-serving, a bit cultish. But these are the genuine article.

Leave it to LRH to have created such a terrific program. Not only does it give terrific opportunity for writers and illustrators in Sci Fi and Fantasy, but it's a truly great read.
