BASS 2011 Redux

without comments

Recently, I’ve heard from Josh, an Internet friend who also enjoys discovering stories that will appear in Best American Short Stories before it comes out. He mentions “Gurov in Manhattan,” by Ehud Havazelet, originally published in TriQuarterly, and “Housewifely Arts” by Megan Mayhew Bergman, from One Story.

I’ve also found out that Caitlin Horrocks’s story “The Sleep,” originally published  in Atlantic for Kindle, will be included.

I still haven’t heard from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt about the entire list. So, let me know if you know of or are the author of an included story. I’ll be adding to the list as I discover more about stories that’ll be included.

Here’s the updated partial list of authors whose stories will appear in The Best American Short Stories 2011, guest-edited by Geraldine Brooks.

Clicking on the author’s name will take you to the announcement of BASS inclusion.
