Otters In Space published by FurPlanet

Otters In Space, a self-published novel by the Wordos co-chair Mary E. Lowd, was picked up by a small press.  After more than a year of marketing her novel and selling it at science-fiction and furry conventions herself, Mary managed to catch the attention of the furry publisher FurPlanet.  The owners of FurPlanet were impressed by the book's performance at the furry convention Rainfurrest and offered to add Otters In Space to their line of furry fiction.  They will be releasing a new edition of the novel with eye-catching cover art by Doc Marcus in January, 2012.

Jacob A. Boyd wins Writers of the Future!

Jacob A. Boyd won third place in the 3rd Quarter of the Writers of the Future Contest for 2011 with his story "Lost Pine":  After an entire decade of having a member place in or win Writers of the Future, the Wordos took a year off in 2010.  Let's hope that Jacob has started our streak up again!
