The best new science fiction of the future.
Writers of the Future XXVIII printed by Galaxy Press!
16 Short stories by new authors. They all started by entering the "Writers of the Future" contest.
Out of the whole book, my all time favorite is about a man made of twigs, how he was made and came to be not just a man of twigs.
They will have the next award event for Writers of the Future volume 29, with all of the winners getting their awards on April 14th
It is free to watch and it will be live streaming from Hollywood on the www.writersofthefuture.com web site. It will start at 6:30 PST.
