    I haven t read a single author short fiction collection in over 15 years It was Otherness by David Brin, which I read in high school But I came across Brad Torgersen s blog in reading up about the 2014 Hugo award controversy and I was struck 1 by his writing and 2 by the fact that so many of the short stories in the collection were award winners Ray of Light was a 2012 Hugo Nebula nominee, Outbound was a 2011 Analog Readers Choice Award winner, and Exanastasis was a 2010 Writers o I haven t read a single author s...

    This collection of short stories comes with some attractive sounding recommendations from other SF authors Torgersen himself seems eager to sell the book to the reader, even once you ve got it in your hands the stories are interspersed with anecdotes about his successes in selling to magazines or collaborating with other authors who are to a man impressed with Torgersen s brilliance.Torgersen often deals with themes of military life and religious faith, and as someone not particularly intere This collection of short stories comes with some attractive sounding recommendations from other SF authors Torgersen himself seems eager to sell the book to the reader, even once you ve got it in your hands the stories are interspersed with anecdotes about his successes in selling to magazines or collaborating with other authors who are to a man impressed with Torgersen s brill...

    I enjoyed all the stories and I m a fan of Brad R Torgersen I bought this book especially for my library as my South Sydney library didn t have a copy I think The Chaplain s Assistant is not very reflective of a Christian or Baptist church.The Assistant to the Chaplain is very reluctant where he should be passionate and servant hearted If this is what he has chosen or been called to do with his life, he could have spent years equipping himself with God s word Why does he feel so inept to I enjoyed all the stories and I m a fan of Brad R Torgersen I bought this book especially for my library as my South Sydney library didn t have a copy I think The Chaplain s Assistant is not ...

    My first exposure to the works of Brad R Torgersen was the story Ray of Light in the November 2011 Analog Like David Levine s Tk Tk Tk , I thought it was worthy of awards nominations as soon as it came out I forgot the author s name, over time, and then saw he was up for a Nebula for that story.I requested a copy of the anthology it was in, for review Brad sent along a copy of THE CHAPLAINS WAR, which is not a small press publication so I could not review it over at Abyss Apex bu My first exposure to the works of Brad R Torgersen was the story Ray of Light in the November 2011 Analog Like David Levine s Tk Tk Tk , I thought it was worthy of awards nominations as soon as it came out I forgot the author s name, over time, and then saw he was up for a Nebula for that story.I requested a copy of the anthology it was in, for review Brad sent along a copy of THE CHAPLAINS WAR, which is not a small press publi...

    A strong anthology of Nivenesque science fiction My only real beef with this particular collection was that it seemed like every story was trying to find the ray of hope in a terrible, terrible backstory The cumulative background casualty count to these stories is many times the current population of the Earth, which I found somewhat taxing to consider despite the generally upbeat message behind the stories themselves The fact that I really like this style of story is what drives me cr A strong anthology of Nivenesque science fiction My only real beef with this particular collection was that it se...

    Sort of a mixed bag, like most collections of short stories I guess Some are good, like the wonderfully constructed Outbound, Exiles of Eden or Exanastasis, and some just don t have enough meat on them to really be something, or are too simplistic.Torgersen is clearly to keep an eye on, though When he hits the target, he manages to create believable and immersive realities I am not a great fan of short stories myself because I find them too limited in terms of what you can achieve Torgersen Sort of a mixed bag, like most collections of short stories I guess Some are good, like the wonderfully constructed Outbound, Exiles of Eden or Exanastasis, and some just don t have enough meat o...
