Writers of the Future Winner Brad Torgersen Publishes First Collection of Short Stories
Brad Torgersen will see his first collection of short stories, "Lights in the Deep" published with WordFire Press (WFP).
It all started when Brad was awarded at the 26th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards held in Hollywood, California in 2010 as a Writers of the Future contest winner. He has been steadily publishing since. Within a couple of months of the ceremony, Brad had his second short story in print, and has seen over 16 publications of his shorts.
"WFP have made an excellent choice with Brad who is wildly popular in science fiction," said contest coordinating judge and New York Times bestselling author David Farland. "He puts out consistently excellent material and has a growing fan base."
WordFire Press, founded by Writers of the Future contest judges Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, has now started publishing their best picks in a field of thousands of potential authors to choose from. Kevin himself has published over 120 novels with his primary publishers in a 25 year career, more than fifty of which have been national or international bestsellers. To keep up with the ever changing publishing industry Kevin decided to start up his own publishing company to reissue his old novels, first in e-book format and then in print versions. This concept expanded to co-authored books, of which Kevin has dozens and now to other authors.
Since Brad came out of the gate and received Hugo, Nebula and Campbell award nominations within 2 years of going professional, Kevin is delighted to publish Brad's first compilation.
The Writers of the Future contests was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth.
