I love these anthologies so much and I am excited to tell you about the latest installment, Writers of the Future Volume 39. As a fan of L. Ron Hubbard and the sci-fi genre in general, I’ve read past volumes of Writers of the Future and really loved them. Now that we are on volume 39, something else that I really love is how the writing and the stories evolve with our cultural evolutions. One thing that I love about these is that there is something for everyone and this edition is no different.
We have sci-fi, fantasy, speculative fiction, love, adventure, and great art!
This one is packed full of so many great stories, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Moonlight and Funk, a fantasy by Marianne Xenos really stands out to me because I love vampires and I love dragons and this story had both! And it worked seamlessly. Under My Cypresses explores life in a metaverse, which is really cool. All of the art is over the top amazing this time! See below for more and images from the publisher.
Check it out! You can’t go wrong and if you love it, maybe read some past volumes, too. It’s available on Amazon in all formats, including audiobook and Kindle.
