This seems as good a space as any to announce that World Weaver Press is now on an indefinite hiatus. Most of our books will remain on sale, but at this time, we have no future titles planned. Trenchcoats, Towers, and Trolls: Cyberpunk Fairy Tales and Mothers of Enchantment: New Tales of Fairy Godmothers, both published earlier this year, may be our final releases.
When I took over World Weaver Press in 2016, my goal was to follow through on the promises the previous owner had made to the authors and editors who had trusted us with their creative projects. With varying degrees of success, I did that, and a little bit more. Our books have reached readers all over the world. Stories in our anthologies have been translated into other languages, quoted in critical essays, and assigned in classrooms. I'm especially proud of the books that have made it onto SFF award lists: Bite Somebody by Sara Dobie Bauer, 2017 Imadjinn Award for Best Paranormal Romance Novel; “The Partisan and the Witch” by Charlotte Honigman in Skull and Pestle: New Tales of Baba Yaga, 2020 WSFA Small Press Award; Multispecies Cities: Solarpunk Urban Futures, nominee for Best Utopian Anthology/Collection in the 2022 Utopia Awards.
Even though we're (probably) not publishing any new ones, World Weaver Press books still have a long life ahead of them, so please continue to leave reviews, share your favorites with your on- and offline networks, and pick up the ones you've been meaning to check out. Below, you can see which titles readers were most excited about in the first half of 2022!
