Walter Williams wants us to know: “My short story, The InfoCoup is coming out in the fall edition of Abyss and Apex magazine, AND That same story has been chosen to be part of the anthology The Best of Abyss and Apex, Volume 3. This will be available for purchase in December.
While the short story itself wasn’t workshopped on the OWW, it is an
excerpt from a novel that I partially workshopped on OWW. The very first
draft of the one chapter actually was chosen as the editor’s choice in ages
past. (I’m willing to guess 2005 or 2006)”
Gregor Hartmann has some great news: ““Heaven Looks Down on the Tomb,” which was critiqued here in 2014, appears in the July-August issue of Interzone. I’d like to thank Karl Bunker, Mike Canice, Allan Dyen-Shapiro, Robert Graves, Clint Spivey, and Katie Sweet for their comments.”

Bradley Beaulieu wants to tell everyone some great news: “Today I’m pleased to announce that Absynthe, a novel set in a reimagined Roaring Twenties Chicago, has sold to DAW Books. Absynthe is a standalone novel, but I hope to write more in this world. More on this, obviously, as we work on proper cover copy, covers, and more. The plan is to have this out in the fall of 2020. Which means I need to get cracking on finishing up the manuscript!”
Huge congratulations, Brad!

Jaime Lee Moyer wants to let you know: “Back in the day, I workshopped a book called The Witch Of Sherwood on OWW. I just sold that book, and an as yet untitled second book to Jo Fletcher Books in the UK. The novel is now titled Brightfall, and will be out in July of 2019. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to all the OWW members who read and commented on the chapters I posted on the shop. You pointed me in the right direction. Thank you all.”
William Delman wrote to say: “Just wanted to let the community know I have two pieces out right now. “Head in the Cloud” is currently up at The Arcanist, and “Known Issues” is in Mythic #6, available now from Amazon, and other retailers. Also, I’ve very happy to announce my story “The Endless Lives of Kama” was purchased by Daily Science Fiction (pub. date pending).
I’d like to thank everyone at the workshop who helped me polish and sharpen these pieces, and I’m looking forward to being more active in the workshop in the months ahead.”
