Book Review: Writers of the Future – Volume 33

Writers of the Future – Volume 33 is a set of 17 stories written by several writers exclusively authored not only to fascinate and terrify but also to delight readers. The book features 14 best tales from the Writers of the Future international writer’s program with illustrations from the winners of the Future international illustrator’s program.

The book begins with a short and crisp introduction by David Farland. He talks about how he started to write along with other information. The next chapter titled Moonlight One examines the significance of telescopes, mission commands including the petroleum-based lubricant. The author talks about NASA’s internship program in detail. In page 23, you will view an amazing stuff.

In the next chapter titled, The Armor Embrace, the author talks about the presence of crackling external speakers, Airstream camper, Vege-protein pumps, screen flickering and much more. The Search for Research, which is the next chapter has been authored by Ron Hubbard in an adventurous tone. He outlines an incident which occurred in the New York Public Library with special reference to research activities. He also authored the next chapter named The Devil’s Rescue. It talks about the wind and sea related developments.

An interesting point to note is that each chapter includes an illustration drawn with the caption below it. This will help readers, particularly children to grasp the content easily. You will find one page full of illustration. I would suggest the publisher to provide more than one illustration in between content to attract readers.

The remaining chapters covered on the book includes Tears for Shulna, The Drake Equation, Acquision, Obsidian Spire, A thousand or so words of Wisdom, Gator, A Glowing heart and more. The author also examines how you can become an illustrator written by Larry Elmore. He provides a detailed overview of the various aspects of an illustrator with quotes from reputed personalities.

Towards the end of the book, you will find specific notes related to art direction authored by Bob Eggleton. At the end of each chapter, you will find illustrations in Black and White. However, at the end of the book, you will view colored illustrations, which looks excellent and great. The illustrator deserves full credit since the designer has created them so accurately with perfection and beauty.

Writers of the Future – Volume 33 is an excellent book for students, novelists, kids and for all those who are interested in exploring the wonderful world of science fiction.
