Synopsis

Synopsis

An Anchor Original

The 80th anniversary edition of "the nation's most prestigious awards for the short story."--The Atlantic Monthly

Established early in the last century as a memorial to O. Henry, throughout its history this annual collection has consistently offered a remarkable sampling of contemporary short stories. Each year stories are chosen from large and small literary magazines and a panel of distinguished writers is enlisted to award the top prizes. The result is a superb collection of twenty inventive, full-bodied stories representing the very best in American and Canadian fiction.

Praise

Praise

High praise for Prize Stories 1999:

"Prize Stories is eerier, broodier, chancier, and ultimately more alive to the genre's exhilarating unpredictability [than The Best American Short Stories]."--Entertainment Weekly

"Interesting and unconventional."--Seattle Post-Intelligencer
