Now in its 51st year, Best Canadian Stories has long championed the short story form and highlighted the work of writers who have gone on to shape the Canadian literary canon. Margaret Atwood, Mavis Gallant, and Alice Munro, and, more recently, Casey Plett, Omar El Akkad, and Souvankham Thammavongsa, alongside many others, have appeared in its pages over the decades, making Best Canadian Stories the go-to source for what’s new in Canadian fiction writing for more than five decades. Selected by guest editor Diane Schoemperlen, the 2021 edition draws together both newer and established writers to shape an engaging and luminous mosaic of writing in this country today—a continuation of not only a series, but a legacy in Canadian letters.
