9780385481823: Prize Stories 1996: The O. Henry Awards (Pen / O. Henry Prize Stories)

For the past three decades, William Abrahams has  selected the O. Henry Award winners. Building on  a tradition that spans over three quarters of a  century, The O. Henry Awards has been "widely  regarded as the nation's most prestigious awards  for short fiction" (The Atlantic  Monthly). Every year, Abrahams has chosen a  diverse group of stories and writers to creat a  collection that includes perennial favorites as well  as an increasing number of lesser known writers,  many of whom have gone on to become seminal voices  in current American fiction. Prize  Stories 1996 is both William Abrahams's  thirtieth anniversary as Editor of this landmark  collection and his last, which gives this collection a  special resonance. The twenty or more stories  selected for this honor each yhear are culled from a  broad range of American magazines both large and  small, offering the reader the full sweep and variety  of today's fiction. As in previous years,  Prize Stories 1996 concludes with a  contributors' notes section including comments by the  writers on the inspirations behind their stories,  providing readers with a unique entrÚe into the  writers' creative processes. Representing the  excellence of contemporary fiction writing, these stories  demonstrate the continuing strenghth and vitality  of the American short story.

Review:

Widely regarded as one of the most prestigious awards for short fiction, the O'Henry Awards collects what it regards to be the finest short stories of the year. Includes stories by Alison Baker, Ralph Lombreglia, Jane Smiley and this year's first prize winner, Stephen King. I hear he's written a couple books.

About the Author:

Born in 1919, William Abrahams published four successful novels and a number of poems before finding his true calling as an editor. He presided over the O. Henry Awards for more than 30 years starting in 1965. Abrahams also worked as the west coast editor of Atlantic Monthly Press and collaborated on nonfiction books with his partner, Peter Stansky. He passed away in 1998.
