LAS VEGAS, Sept. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — LMBPN® Publishing, a global leader in indie digital book publishing, has today announced that it has entered into a non-exclusive agreement with the organization Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (“SFWA”) to include the short story Messenger by Yudhanjaya Wijeratne and R.R. Virdi in SFWA’s Nebula Anthology 54.
Michael Anderle, President / Chief Executive Officer at LMBPN®, said, “SFWA’s compilation of Nebula Award-nominated stories has been touted as indispensable reading for anyone interested in fantastic fiction by the likes of Publisher’s Weekly. We at LMBPN recognize that SFWA acknowledges great stories and writing by including selected stories in their Nebula Anthologies. We are therefore pleased that they have chosen Messenger to be part of the illustrious group of stories that make up their upcoming Nebula Anthology 54 edition. We congratulate Yudhanjaya Wijeratne and R.R. Virdi for this great recognition of their work.”
Yudhanjaya Wijeratne and R.R. Virdi, Messenger co-authors, add, “Messenger started out as us reimagining what a kaiju-vs-giant-robot story would look like if it was set closer to countries that rarely get explored in this genre. We’re thrilled to see it in the SFWA Nebula Anthology 54 and quite happy about its reception. We would like to thank everyone involved in getting this story out there, especially Craig Martelle, who edits the Expanding Universe anthology in which the story originally appeared.”

In 1991, the name of the organization was changed to Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, although the acronym SFWA was not changed. In 2013, the members of the organization voted to reincorporate in California, effectively beginning a new 501(c)3 public charity.
