Publisher's Summary

Listen to the best new science-fiction and fantasy short stories from up-and-coming writers. Established in 1983 by L. Ron Hubbard expressly for the aspiring writer, Writers of the Future has become the most respected and significant forum for new talent in all aspects of speculative fiction.

The elite character of the contest is evident from the roster of judges: Doug Beason, Gregory Benford, Orson Scott Card, Eric Kotani, Anne McCaffrey, Jerry Pournelle, Robert Silverberg, and K. D. Wentworth.

Since its inception, the contest has helped place more than 250 novels and 2,500 short stories on bookshelves around the world. The Writers of the Future Award has also earned its place alongside the Hugo and Nebula awards in the triad of speculative fiction's most prestigious acknowledgments of literary excellence.

The stories are illustrated by budding new artists, all winners of the annual Illustrators of the Future Contest. Download the accompanying PDF to see the illustrations.

    "not so much a book review as a people review"

    I bought this with a view to assess the different stories and see who was "one to be noted" for the future.
    I find it to be very disappointing in that too many peoples potted life histories were taking up too much time and a boring litany of people connected to each author were reviewed as well.
    Actual "book time " very low.

    "Another great collection"

    Volume 24 is another great collection of short form speculative fiction stories. There were a number of stand outs in this issue.

    My favorites include: Ian McHugh's 'Bitter Dreams', J. Kathleen Cheney's 'Taking a Mile', Patrick Lundrigan's 'Hanger Queen', David Parish-Whittaker's 'A War in the Belly of a Mouse'

    All of the stories are of the highest quality and listening to them on Audible is extremely convenient.

    "Very entertaining"

    The stories are all great entertainment from fresh talent. I enjoyed all of them. The performances are also very good. I listened to this on a long drive and it was interesting enough to keep listening to the entire time.

    What I didn't like was that each story comes with an "about the author" and an "about the illustrator" that are read by an automated voice. The authors and illustrators have achieved something great and they deserve the chance to publish their bios, but some of them are extremely long and the narration of these is tedious.

    Overall, it was well worth the credit for 14 hours of fresh-faced speculative fiction.
