Why does this Writers of the Future Writing Contest read like a dodgy Reader's Digest scam? Does signing up include a lifetime membership to Scientology too?

Weird, isn't it? I feel incredibly uneasy about anything connected to L. Ron Hubbard, but as far as I can tell this is a genuine and well respected award whose only connection to t3h El-Ron is its instigation. Even Rob Sawyer recommends it heartily, and whatever you may think of him, he doesn't recommend things that aren't sound moves in writerly business.
Or at least, I think he doesn't...
I personally don't want to learn how to write like Kevin J Anderson... I think I write badly enough as it is.
Touche! He's not to my taste either, but there must be something to what he does or no one would buy it, I guess.
I read the Star Wars books KJA did and enjoyed them. Although at the time I was reading all of the spin offs in the hope that they would match up to the first 3 Timothy Zahn ones (none did).
Also read his X-Files books a few years ago, which was fine, nothing special.
Haven't read any of his stuff that wasn't a media tie in to comment.
come one man, Tim Zahn is a master at wrighting, the only problem with him makin SW books is that he is so damn good at it that everyone else pales in comparision. If you want books that at least remain within a timeline, then all SW books from Del Rey/Bantam are your choice. If you dont care about books being within a timeline and just want adventure then stick to star trek.
