L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 40 is a fantastic look today at some of the strongest candidates for your favorite storytellers of tomorrow.  Running the gamut between science fiction, science fantasy, traditional fantasy, and more contemporary works, these issues are perfect for any and all fans of speculative fiction.  A dozen stories by up-and-coming authors fill the pages, accompanied by beautiful displays from equally talented artists who will no doubt be composing covers and concepts alongside the prolific worldbuilders who have won the most recent contest.  They are joined by award-winning authors, who elevate the contest winners alongside them.

Spine-tingling, breathtaking, and mind-blowing…

Experience these powerful new voices—vivid, visceral, and visionary—as they explore uncharted worlds and reveal unlimited possibilities.

Twelve captivating tales from the best new writers of the year as selected by Writers of the Future Contest judges accompanied by three more from L. Ron Hubbard, Nancy Kress, and S.M. Stirling. Each of these spectacular stories is accompanied by a full-color illustration.

Dementia has landed Dan Kennedy in Graydon Manor, and what’s left of his life ahead seems dismal, but a pair of impossible visitors bring unexpected hope; When a teenage swamp witch fears her mama will be killed, she utilizes her wits and the magic of the bayou—no matter the cost to her own soul; What if magic could undo the unthinkable, and undo Death itself? Would you use it no matter the cost? What would you sacrifice for love?

Read all these stories and many more, in the 40th release of Writers of the Future!
