More good news from our newest winners

I received the following news from Jeff Carlson (WotF 23). First of all he has a new story in print, a quirky action-adventure piece in the January 2007 issue of Asimov's.

From an advance review on Tangent Online:

"Gunfight at the Sugarloaf Pet Food & Taxidermy" by Jeff Carlson features a most unusual heroine: Julie, a Montanan ranger who roboticizes hunting decoys... The setup has a sitcom's simplicity, but Carlson's dead straight delivery and attention to the fine points of character make "Gunfight" even more memorable and amusing.

What's more, after seeing no more than an eleven-page outline, Jeff's editor at Ace made an offer on his second novel, a sequel with the working title War Year. The first novel, Plague Year, will be in book stores in August 2007. War Year is currently scheduled for Summer 2008.

If you are a winner - past, present or future - be sure to send me your news. Or if you have news about Writers and Illustrators of the Future, even if you aren't a winner, send this to me as well.
