We're excited about The Journey Prize Stories Volume 25

Tuesday, Jul 16, 2013 at 4:16pm

And we have every reason to be:

A short story by McNally Robinson's own Steven Benstead, author of novels The Wooing of a Lady and Driving Blind, will appear in The Journey Prize Stories #25, which will be released in October. Steven's story, entitled "Megan's Bus," was originally published in Grain Magazine.

The annual Journey Prize collection sets itself apart from other anthologies in that editors of literary publications, both print and online, from across the country submit what, in their view, is the most exciting writing in English they have published in the previous year. The stories included in the anthology are contenders for the $10,000 Writers' Trust of Canada/McClelland & Stewart Journey Prize, which is made possible by James A. Michener's generous donation of his Canadian royalty earnings from his novel Journey, published by McClelland & Stewart in 1988.

The Journey Prize Stories #25 will be out on October 8th, 2013, as a trade paperback, and McNally Robinson will be proud to carry the book in-store. If you're interested in pre-ordering a copy for yourself, simply contact or visit your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore.
