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: Kevin J. Anderson, Doug Beason, Gregory Benford, Algis Budrys, Orson Scott Card, Brian Herbert, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Eric Kotani, Anne McCaffrey, Larry Niven, Frederik Pohl, Jerry Pournelle, Tim Powers, 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 acknowledgements 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.

Ok but not gripping

Most of the stories were slow, a few ok. 1 or 2 were insightful and fresh.

Only a few worth lisetening to.

I'm 70% through with "Writers of the Future" and I really expected more from the collection of winners. Some of the stories just seemed to have no point, some had little to do with SF. Maybe the last 30% will save it for me.
