The Journey Prize Stories 26

McClelland & Stewart Limited | October 7, 2014 | 256 pages

Now in its twenty-sixth year, this celebrated annual fiction anthology showcases the best short stories of the year by some of our most exciting new writers. A must-read for readers of short fiction writers, including fans of Lynn Coady, Miranda Hill, George Saunders, Karen Russell, and B.J. Novak, and publications like McSweeney's, The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, and The Best American Short Stories; aspiring writers, and anyone interested in the future of CanLit. This is the twenty-sixth edition of The Journey Prize Stories, one of North America's most celebrated annual fiction anthologies. As well as receiving high praise every year, it has become a virtual who's who of up-and-coming writers, presenting the best short stories published each year by some of Canada's best new writers. Previous contributors -- including such now well-known, bestselling writers as Yann Martel, Heather O'Neill, David Bergen, Michael Crummey, Emma Donoghue, Elizabeth Hay, Pasha Malla, Lisa Moore, Nancy Richler, Timothy Taylor, and M.G. Vassanji -- have gone on to win prestigious literary awards and honours, including the Booker Prize, the Giller Prize, the Governor General's Award, and CBC's Canada Reads competition. The stories included in the anthology are contenders for the $10,000 Journey Prize, which is made possible by Pulitzer Prize-winning author James A. Michener's donation of Canadian royalties from his novel Journey. The 2014 winner will be announced by The Writers' Trust of Canada in fall 2014.
