Book Bomb for Newly Published Authors
With the release of L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 33, we are proud to introduce 14 talented new authors and artists of science fiction and fantasy.
These short stories are a creative mix of speculative fiction by different writers, asking unique “what ifs.” To help give them a boost, we have organized a Book Bomb for today, April 12th, and are urging you to join us in supporting these newly published authors.

Here are a few of the reviews for this new edition:
“The WOTF (Writers of the Future) anthologies are indispensable volumes for genre lovers who want to read great stories and enjoy great art. And this year’s volume is particularly fantastic.” —OMNI Media
“Given that the 14 new writers represented in this anthology are all winners of the contest L. Ron Hubbard founded in 1983, it’s not surprising that their contributions are of a consistently high quality. Fans of classic science fiction will find much to appreciate here.”—Publishers Weekly
“Readers who are interested in discovering promising writers and who want to sample an inventive mix of speculative fiction will be likely to find something that resonates here.”—Library Journal
