5.0 out of 5 stars How to See the Future of Science Fiction, 10 Jan. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Writers of the Future: 13 (Paperback)
L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 13 is a truly superb and solid collection of science fiction and fantasy short stories by some of the most talented and visionary new writers of our time. From the opening tale by Bo Griffin about a man who draws women to him with "The Scent of Desire," only to have them burn up in his arms from the heat of his passion, to the alternate history tale in which the Mormon War of 1857 takes an unexpected turn in "For the Strength of the Hills," by Lee Allred, these stories are well-written, engaging, and as innovative as they are varied in style and subject matter. Come, learn what it's like to be accused of murder for liking the color orange, explore the final resting place of a mighty emperor in the company of his favorite female assassin and concubine, or place your bet on the Norse god of your choice when "The Gods Perspire." There's great fun to be had here, and some delightful food for thought, as well.

When you turn these pages, be prepared to look into many futures -- including the future of science fiction and fantasy itself. The names in front of the stories are new, but many of them are likely to become as familiar to the readers of tommorow, as the judges who chose these stories for inclusion in this anthology are to today's readers. Judges like Gregory Benford, Orson Scott Card, Anne McCaffrey, Andre Norton, Frederik Pohl, Robert Silverberg, Jack Williamson, Dave Wolverton, and others, all stellar -- even legendary -- figures in their own right. Read and I think you'll agree: they chose these Writers of the Future carefully and well.
