John Haas is a winner from Writers of the Future, Volume 35. He was also my roommate for the week and is a great guy. He wrote one of my favorite stories in Vol. 35, and he's got the prequel to the story coming soon through Kevin J. Anderson's WordFire Press. You can listen to the interview here! https://soundcloud.com/writersofthefuture/122-john-haas-when-life-gets-in-the-way-dreams-can-still-be-made-to-happen

John's winner was Damned Voyage, wasn't it? Great story. I wonder how far back the prequel will go?

As for the podcast, I'm still working my way through a couple of the other WotF podcasts each morning. I'll get to John's soon!

Yes. “The Damned Voyage” was dark historical fantasy, a great example of where the edge is in the Contest on horror. One of my favorites in Volume 35, and it was in the same Q4 as myself and the Golden Pen winner. Dave said in an Apex Writers’ interview that was an exceptional quarter, and he spoke highly of John’s story. Well worth the read and study. John Haas talks about the prequel in the interview, so your answers will be there.

Do take note of John Goodwin’s comments on hopeful, positive messaging for the Contest. They are seeking stories that will inspire the future for humanity. I think it’s important to stay on that side of the line for WotF if you hope to be selected as a winner.
