Writer’s of the Future’s Vol. 28 PW Review

Writers of the Future Vol. 28 has been published in ebook format (mmp forthcoming July 21st) with my story, Of Woven Wood, taking the first slot in the anthology.

I’ve recently returned from the workshop week and awards ceremony and will have decently thorough write-ups of my time out on the west coast out in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, I just found out that Publisher’s Weekly reviewed the anthology:

“The 28th installment of this venerable anthology series collects the 13 winners of the Writers of the Future contest for 2011, drawing from the ranks of new authors and artists. Many of the contributors have already seen other success in the field, and it’s not hard to imagine some of them making award lists in the near future. The offerings are thought provoking and varied, with a general trend toward excellence. Standouts include Marie Croke’s “Of Woven Wood,” in which a golem learns to deal with his creator’s death; William Mitchell’s “Contact Authority,” a tale of outer space espionage; and Scott T. Barnes’s lyrical “Insect Sculptor.” The selections are weighted toward science fiction, with several fantasy pieces and some that defy genre, like Nick T. Chan’s “The Command for Love.” The future is in good hands.”

Bolding mine. Yay for good reviews and personal mentions :)

  1. I’m only a few stories into the anthology yet, but I loved Of Woven Wood. I never thought I’d see a golem as a compelling main character, but you did it amazingly.
