Chrysalis

Tagged: Publication

US original anthology series, 1977-1983, ten volumes, edited by Roy Torgeson. The first seven were paperback originals from Zebra Books; the remaining three had hardcover first editions from Doubleday. They were Chrysalis (anth 1977), Chrysalis 2 (anth 1978), Chrysalis 3 (anth 1978), Chrysalis 4 (anth 1979), Chrysalis 5 (anth 1979), Chrysalis 6 (anth 1980), Chrysalis 7 (anth 1980), Chrysalis 8 (anth 1980), Chrysalis 9 (anth 1981) and Chrysalis 10 (anth 1983). Torgeson's editorial policy was eclectic, perhaps too much so; he published sf, fantasy and horror by a mixture of new and established writers. The series title was intended to suggest something developing and changing and about to give birth to beauty. Although Chrysalis published a number of interesting stories, including four each by Orson Scott Card and Australian writer Leanne Frahm, it never developed a very strong personality, and it is perhaps surprising (though admirable) that it lasted as long as it did.
