The winners of the 2016 Strange New Worlds writing contest have been announced by Pocket Books, longtime publisher of Star Trek books. The contest has its roots in the original Star Trek: Strange New Worlds anthology, first published in 1998, and Pocket reestablished the Strange New Worlds writing contest in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek.
Strange New Worlds was written by amateur writers selected through an open submissions process, with the winners’ worked included in an annual collection of short stories set in the Star Trek universe. Those popular anthologies were published until 2007 and, among others, they launched the careers of such writers as Dayton Ward, Ilsa J. Bick, Scott Pearson, Geoffrey Thorne and William Leisner.The 10 Grand Prize winners, picked from hundreds of submissions, will each receive a $1000 advance and will have their stories included in the all-new Star Trek: Strange New Worlds 2016 Edition Anthology, to be published in the digital-first format later this year.
The Grand Prize winners are:
Neil BryantDilithium Is a Girl’s Best Friend
Gary Piserchio & Frank TagaderA Christmas Qarol
Kelli FitzpatrickThe Sunwalkers
Chris ChaplinThe Seen and Unseen
Michael TurnerThe Façade of Fate
Nancy DebretsionThe Manhunt Pool
Derek Tyler AtticoThe Dreamer and the Dream
Roger McCoyThe Last Refuge
John CoffrenLife Among the Post-Industrial Barbarians

The two First Prize winners, Kerry F. Booth and James Corrigan, will each receive a free publishing package from Archway Publishing valued at approximately $5,000 to publish a book on a subject other than Star Trek.
