What a wonderful compilation of talented authors and illustrators!

I was fortunate enough to review this collection of short stories in preparation of the launch to this year’s annual Writers & Illustrators of the Future (Volume 30) book. For those not familiar with the contest, this is a competition for aspiring writers that is judged by some of the top authors in speculative fiction (Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror). 

When I first received my book, I was really excited about what I would find once I opened it. I have always been a really huge fan of the science fiction/fantasy genre and I knew that I had in my hands a treasure trove of science fiction jewels.

So many talented and imaginative authors...

These original stories are absolutely amazing and spectacularly written... and what diverse imagination these authors have to offer! One of my favorites would have to be “The Shaadi Exile” by Amanda Forrest which is illustrated by Vincent-Michael Coviello. This story opens with Indian brides sent by wormholes to other planets for arranged marriages and later builds to a beautiful climax. Another one I really liked was “The Clouds in Her Eyes” by Liz Colter, illustrated by Kirbi Fagan. This story is about a girl named Amba in a drought, and what unfolds is developed with artistry of the highest caliber by Colter.

These are just two examples of many wonderful and creative stories. All of which have very different ideas and settings. You won’t be disappointed by this collection. The illustrations in this book are absolutely remarkable! There are so many pages of talent from cover to cover.

If you love the science fiction/fantasy genre, you MUST read this book!
