Product Details


The Journey Prize Anthology has become the proving ground for new, young Canadian writers, a who’s who of the coming generation. . . . There’s nothing else like it in Canada. (I, for one, owe everything to the Journey Prize.)”
– Yann Martel, previous Journey Prize winner and the author of the Booker Prize-winning novel The Life of Pi

"The Journey Prize Anthology represents the haunting pulse of the country’s literary heartbeat."
Edmonton Journal

"An adventurous collection of cut-above stories. . . . [The Journey Prize Anthology] buttresses the widely held conviction that short fiction is alive and swelling the ranks of first-rate Canadian authors gathering accolades around the globe."
Toronto Star

"Consistently strong, and maintains the high standard for which it has become known."
Quill & Quire

"In this competition, the real winner is the reader."
Books in Canada

"Even for a country used to superb short story writers like Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, and Mavis Gallant, this is impressive stuff."
Globe and Mail

"I have seen the future and it is fabulous."
Ottawa Citizen

"The Journey Prize Anthology is, without a doubt, the book I most look forward to each year."
-Bert Archer, Toronto Star

"The Journey Prize Anthology offers a road map of our cultural avenues, with signs drawn up by writers as varied as the topography, economy, and customs that surround them."
Georgia Straight

"The Journey Prize Anthology has become an important annual literary event in this country."
-Diane Schoemperlen, Kingston Whig-Standard

"A generous and timely acknowledgement of the importance of short fiction."
Quill & Quire

"The craftsmanship of these writers is worthy of Munro or Gallant."
Ottawa Citizen

"A tight list of who to watch among a new generation of up-and-coming writers."
-Montreal Gazette

"When you sip from this literary brew of some of the year’s best short fiction produced in Canada, your senses are aroused for conjuring by your own imagination. . . . Selections that are equally distinct and equally entertaining, as good fiction should be. Readers will be rewarded."
-Denise Chong, Ottawa Citizen
