This blogging thing still has perks. Today in the mail came my reviewer's copy of L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of Future Vol 23, the anthology of the annual Writers of the Future Awards. The authors inside are all new and unless the contest's high standards have inexplicably gone south, which I don't anticipate, all really good.
This yearly anthology is a significant text in the sff field, and the authors inside it often go on to successful careers. Each volume also contains an essay on writing by an already famous author. It's worth looking at for anyone interested in writing or interested in sf and fantasy in general.
I'm obligated to review this, having a reviewer's copy and all, so I'm afraid other projects promised on this blog are briefly delayed. Briefly. I mean, how long can it take me to read a short story collection?
Oh, and Snuffles, get over here and write that post you promised!
