L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, Vol 39, APR 2023 LTER in Reviews of Early Reviewers Books (June 2023)

Reviews

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
ARC review: I like the judges, but somehow, I didn’t really like most of the stories (particularly "Butter side dow"), with a some exceptions, such as "The Imagalisk." "The Wall Isn't a Circle," and "5 Days to Sunset," and maybe "Halo" and "Summer of Thirty Years." And I didn’t really need the reprinted old story and column from L Ron Hubbard, nor the “bonus stories”. I’m also unsure the illustrations really added anything. I kind of remember liking an earlier one of these books many years ago, and I'm not sure if the series has changed since them, or I have.… (more)

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
When you have that feeling of sadness and loss when you reach the end of a book you know it has been a good one, and so it was for me on finishing the end of volume 40. As with any anthology, I found there were some stories that just flew, and some that were more of an effort, and for me I was not so keen on those that were more hardcore complex SciFi, but it is good to push your own boundaries sometimes! There are 12 prize winning stories by new talent plus some bonus material from established authors.
The illustrations for each story are the result of a parallel competition for illustrators, and I felt they really served to bring each story to life.
The ones that particularly shone:
The worthy winner of the grand prize of the competition underpinning this book was ‘Son Spirit Snake’ by Jack Nash and is stunning, absorbing and deserves to become a set text for the mastery in the way the story weaves different world dimensions.

‘Squiddy’ by John Eric Schleicher, was just so original: a Punk image of a Mad Max world but with an unexpected delicate understory of hope. I found the edgy narrative style thoroughly engaging.

‘The Imagalisk’ by Galen Westlake had a heartbreaking insightful depiction of the transient bewilderment of dementia that elevated what was already a fun concept into something special.

What a blast I had reading Kal Ms ‘Butter side down’. Truly original, funny but oh so insightful about what makes us human, with a clever transcript format that was worth the little extra effort it took to read. The two main characters of the lovable Joe and awe inspiring AI aka toaster Breadna were genuinely engaging. Underneath the comedy here is a writer with a formidable intellect, and for me she is one of the key emerging talents to watch.

‘The wall isn’t a circle’ by Rosalyn Robilliard, intriguingly actually two sisters writing collaboratively, was a formidable piece of work: almost novella length with a fun and enjoyable blend of humour, near future insight, and a fast paced multi layered plot. It was very visual, thoroughly engaging and would make a brilliant miniseries. Another author/writing team to watch out for. The illustration by Guelly Rivera is also worth a mention: it stood out and was really evocative of the story.

‘5 days to sunset’ and ‘Ashes to ashes, blood to carbon fibre’ both had underlying ‘life on an alternative planet’ premise, not normally my cup of tea but thanks to the authors for challenging my preconceptions as these were excellent and creative stories that I couldn’t put down.

So in summary this is a superb anthology with exciting new creative talent, both in the world of writing and of illustration. Highly recommended.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I debated a while on whether to go with a 4 or 5 star rating. I finally settled on 4 because of some format issues. I would give 3 stars to one of the stories, 5 stars to half the stories and a 4 to the remainder. This a collection of short stories from new authors with illustrations by new illustrators. The stories are collected in a quarterly contest with the best 3 being included in the volume.
What I didn't enjoy was the presentation of biographies before each story. I felt that this detracted from the story presentations. I also would have preferred the pieces on the process be grouped all together.… (more)

Good to see the Grantville Gazette back under a new title and new management. All titles nicely within the canon and quite readable
