Torgeson, Roy

Tagged: Editor

(?   -1991) US editor, noted mainly for the competent Chrysalis series of Original Anthologies beginning with Chrysalis (anth 1977) and ending with Chrysalis #10 (anth 1983). A second sequence ran for only two volumes: Other Worlds 1 (anth 1979) and Other Worlds #2 (anth 1980). The 1977 Science Fiction and Fantasy Magazine Checklist and Price Guide 1923-1976 (1977 chap) with Howard Frank, whose remit was ambitious, did not continue as perhaps expected. Torgeson's attempts to gain rights to Amazing Stories and Weird Tales were unsuccessful in each case. [JC]
