Douglas Schwarz sent really good news: “My novelette “Le Sorcier de Lascaux” (workshopped on OWW!) appears in the current (Sept/Oct 22) issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction. The issue is available here from Weightless Books.”
Pro sales are always exciting. Huge congratulations, Douglas!
Wonderful news from Rodrigo Culagovski: “Just wanted to let you know I sold “You Don’t Have to Watch This Part” to the Dark Matter Presents: Monstrous Futures anthology.
The story was reviewed in the workshop by Kathleen Morrish, Steve Brady, Albert Chu, Ethan Sabatella, and Lyri Ahnam. It’s my third pro sale since joining the workshop less than a year ago and there’s no way that would have happened without the feedback, criticism, and encouragement I’ve gotten from the people here.”
Huge congratulations, Rodrigo!
Gregor Hartmann wrote with great news: “I’m pleased to announce that “A Language Older Than Ears,” another Inspector Song mystery, has been published in Andromeda Spaceways Magazine (June 2022 issue). It was critiqued here last spring. Thanks again to Andrea Horlick, Larry Pinaire, Bryce Heckman, Kathleen Morrish, and Emily Scharf for their comments.”
Peter S. Drang wrote with wonderful news: “Just wanted to let you know that Factor Four Magazine, a pro publication, just bought my story “Metaforming” which was reviewed extensively on OWW. Thanks to everyone who helped polish this story, which combines Pandemic angst, “The Island of Doctor Moreau”, and “Dr. Jean’s Banana Dance Song”.
Rodrigo Culagovski sent amazing news, and the cover reveal for his new story: “I made my second pro sale! It’s “One Night At The Pájaro Azul”, which was featured in the workshop in January. It will come out in the July issue of SolarPunk Magazine. The workshop has helped me immensely, and there’s no way I could have made two pro sales in a relatively short time without it. Thanks!”
Rodrigo Culagovski wants to tell us all: “Hi! My story, “Liz’s Tea House”, was accepted in the pro-market Future Science Fiction Digest. It was very productively reviewed on the OWW. This is something I’ve wanted all my life and you’ve all helped me achieve it. Thanks so much.”
Ethan Sabatella wants everyone to know his big news: Eerie River Publishing’s “Monsters & Mayhem” anthology is now available to order as a paperback!
My story featured in this anthology, entitled “Bölvetr”, follows a young Viking woman on the run from a Wendigo in the winter-blasted North American Wilderness. It’s the perfect tale to enjoy by a nice fire or under a warm blanket while the final blizzards of the season howl mournfully outside.

Another OWW member sale!
Douglas Schwarz wants to share his great news: “Hello. Per a suggestion on the Profile page, I’m writing to let you know of a major sale! (My first, other than a flash piece in Altered Reality.) Earlier this month I received notice that Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine had accepted my story, “Le Sorcier de Lascaux.” This story was posted for a while on OWW (it is now on my shelf), where I received many useful suggestions that helped mold the final version. I don’t know when the piece will be published — many months from now, at least — but I thought I would let you know. All the best.”
2022 is starting off well for OWW members!
And Sara Kate Ellis wants us all to know: “I just wanted to say that my story “The Machine Wasn’t in the Mood” (Now “Sturm und Clang”) will be in a future issue of Metaphorosis. I wanted to say thank you because the reviews on the site helped a great deal; in particular, Leah Bobet’s kept me going when I was about to give up. So, thank you.”
