L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 38

Have you heard of this contest?

38 years ago, L. Ron Hubbard (the author of the science fiction classic Battlefield Earth) started a contest to help discover new authors. It is still running today and the judges are some of your favorite authors, like Brandon Sanderson, Nnedi Okorafor, Orson Scott Card, and more—really good authors are picking these stories.

Also, the contest is free to enter and judged blind, so each author and illustrator has an equal opportunity to win no matter their gender, race, or age. How cool is that?

The newest book, volume 38 also has some amazing extras: a rare short story by Frank Herbert the author of Dune, (we was also a judge!), L. Ron Hubbard, and David Farland as well as articles with tips for new writers.

With 25 award-winning authors and illustrators, this collection is a masterwork.

These diverse stories will fill you with wonder and new ideas.

Here is a glimpse of a couple:
  • It’s game on, the fate of the universe is on the line—and you’re about to go all in.
  • Saving the mammoths is in your hands—can you conjure the magic to make it happen?
  • You’ve got a monster BFF—whom you’re hiding from your own monster-hunting family.
  • You’re part of a sting, out to catch some bar hoppers who are not only bending their elbows, but bending time as well.
And much more!

And for new writers, how would you like to know Frank Herbert’s “Single Most Important Piece of Advice?”

Volume 38 is a treasure.

You’ll love this collection from past and future science fiction masters, because these stories are hand-picked by some of your favorite authors—including Brandon Sanderson, Orson Scott Card, Nnedi Okorafor, Robert J. Sawyer, and Jody Lynn Nye.

Here is one of the reviews:
“Writers of the Future Vol 38 is a literary smorgasbord where each new story comes with a feeling of excitement and mystery. With so many short stories one might imagine it easy to put down between breaks, but instead it's a binge read. Just one more, you think, and the next thing you know the entire book is gone!

“The illustrations alone make Writers of the Future Vol. 38 worth every single penny and minute spent!

“I truly enjoyed it. As each story comes up you never quite know what you're going to get, and it's so delightful finding out.” –International Review of Books

So give these new authors a shot. Who knows, you may just find your next favorite author! We all need that next book-fix!
