Praise for Best Canadian Stories

“One of the best things about the end of the year is having a chance to look back. The three Best Canadian volumes—Stories, edited by Lisa Moore; Essays, edited by Marcello Di Cintio; and Poetry, edited by Bardia Sinaee—are a snapshot of some of the finest in Canadian writing this year.”
—Robert J. Wiersema, Toronto Star

“Each of the sixteen stories carries a distinctive voice; and Moore is a vociferous ventriloquist and complete angler throwing ‘a fishing line through the air with a narrative hook.’ … Under Lisa Moore’s stewardship, Biblioasis’s Best just keeps getting better.”
—Michael Greenstein, The Miramichi Reader

“A wide-ranging … interesting collection.”
—The BC Review

“The legacy for Canadian literature in the Best Canadian Stories series can’t be overstated. For years the collection has been the place to discover Canadian writers.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“Best Canadian Stories … combines both emerging and established voices for a fascinating glimpse at the most exciting short fiction coming out of this country.”
—Open Book

“The arrival, late in the fall each year, of [this] collection is always cause for fanfare.”
—Quill & Quire
