Great News from Volume XXIII Winner Aliette de Bodard!
This is just to let you and the other WOTF folks know that I've sold three books to new HarperCollins imprint Angry Robot. The books are fantasy-mysteries set in Aztec times: the first one "Servant of the Underworld", will be released in Spring 2010.
The novels are based on my WOTF-winning story "Obsidian Shards", which appeared in volume XXIII: it was at the workshop that I first had the idea to turn it into a novel (based on enthusiastic feedback from a number of my fellow WOTF winners). I also made use of a lot of techniques I learnt at the workshop while I was writing this novel. Thanks again for the awesome experience!
In other news, I didn't win the Campbell Award, but I did take second place, and Tony Pi ended up in third place, so it wasn't such a bad showing.
