About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.


"A very generous legacy from L. Ron Hubbard--a fine, fine fiction writer--for the writers of the future."
--Anne McCaffrey, Author

"Writers of the Future is a terrific program for new writers, and goodness knows, there are few enough of those. It has my heartiest support and unqualified recommendation." Terry Brooks, Author

"A very generous legacy from L. Ron Hubbard a fine, fine fiction writer for the writers of the future."

"Prior to L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Contest starting, there was no field which enabled the new writer to compete with his peers other new writers."
Kevin J. Anderson, Author"
"The Writers of the Future Contest has not only provided a place where new writers could break into print for the first time but it also has a record of nurturing and discovering writers who have gone on to make their mark in the science fiction field. Long may it continue!" Neil Gaiman, Author"
The 28th installment of this venerable anthology series collects the 13 winners of the Writers of the Future contest for 2011, drawing from the ranks of new authors and artists. Many of the contributors have already seen other success in the field, and it s not hard to imagine some of them making award lists in the near future. The offerings are thought provoking and varied, with a general trend toward excellence. Standouts include Marie Croke s Of Woven Wood, in which a golem learns to deal with his creator s death; William Mitchell s Contact Authority, a tale of outer space espionage; and Scott T. Barnes s lyrical Insect Sculptor. The selections are weighted toward science fiction, with several fantasy pieces and some that defy genre, like Nick T. Chan s The Command for Love. The future is in good hands. (June)"
