The thing about a new chapter, is that it's proceeded by the end of the old chapter. Today, World Weaver Press is announcing such an opening and closing of story chapters. At the end of February, I will be stepping down as Editor-in-Chief of World Weaver Press, and Sarena Ulibarri will be taking over the position on March 1, 2016. I am thrilled with what I've accomplished as Editor-in-Chief and by how far we've come in just under four years.
My time as co-founder of the press has been fantastic, primarily because I've had the chance to work with such great authors crafting intensely interesting novels. I think that every reader of speculative fiction should pick up a World Weaver Press title, not because I published them, but because they are such damn engaging stories crafted by truly artful storytellers, each working in her own idiom.
I'm happy to be handing off the creative direction -- both for continuing the series we've started and to seek out new ones -- to someone who shares our vision and passion for speculative fiction and who can continue to drive World Weaver Press forward.
I'll be hosting the coming #SFFlunch on Friday, February 19, 2016, from Noon-2:00 EST, and as always welcome open discussion of speculative fiction and publishing as well as questions for Sarena Ulibarri about her creative vision for the future of the press. World Weaver Press has a full 2016 publication schedule -- Campaign 2100: Game of Scorpions by Larry Hodges is just a few weeks away from release! -- and we will reopen to queries for novels and novellas in February 2017.
