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)”
