Now in its 47th year, Best Canadian Stories has long championed the short story form and highlighted the work of many of the writers, throughout their respective careers, who have gone on to shape the Canadian literary canon. Caroline Adderson, Margaret Atwood, Clark Blaise, Lynn Coady, Mavis Gallant, Zsuzsi Gartner, Douglas Glover, Steven Heighton, Isabel Huggan, Mark Anthony Jarman, Norman Levine, Rohinton Mistry, Alice Munro, Leon Rooke, Diane Schoemperlen, Russell Smith, Linda Svendsen, Kathleen Winter, and many others have appeared in its pages over the years and decades, making Best Canadian Stories the go-to source for what's new in Canadian fiction writing for close to five decades.

The short story is perhaps Canada's greatest contribution to literature, and in this edition established practitioners of the form—including Tamas Dobozy, Cynthia Flood, K.D. Miller, and Lisa Moore—are joined by powerful emerging talents—like Paige Cooper and CBC Short Story Prize winner David Huebert—in a continuation of not only a series, but a legacy in Canadian letters.

John Metcalf was Senior Editor at the Porcupine's Quill until 2005, and is now Fiction Editor at Biblioasis. A scintillating writer and an almost magisterial editor and anthologist, he is the author of more than a dozen works of fiction and non-fiction, including Standing Stones: Selected Stories, Adult Entertainment, Going Down Slow, Kicking Against the Pricks, and most recently The Museum at the End of the World. He lives in Ottawa with his wife, Myrna.
