BASS-CoverWe’re pleased to announce that two of our stories have been selected by Jennifer Egan for this year’s Best American Short Stories collection: Benjamin Nugent’s “God,” which appeared in issue 206; and “Hover,” by Nell Freudenberger, from issue 207. Their stories will appear in an anthology to be published in October.

We also have nine nominees for this year’s Pushcart Prize:

  • Kate Levin, “Dirty Parts,” from the Daily, July 2013

Congratulations to all!

    Excited about this but we are 1/3 of the way through 2014. Are we not a little premature here?

    The Best American series publishes with a year’s delay—the stories in the 2014 edition were all published in 2013. Sort of like 2014’s Oscars are given to movies released in 2013.
