This year’s solid collection of stories chosen from Canada’s literary journals and magazines includes two each from Souvankham Thammavongsa and J.R. McConvey. That’s remarkable because the three esteemed judges read these stories “blind”, not knowing who wrote them or from which journal they came. But it is not surprising once you read the stories in question, since all four are excellent. Indeed, looking over the eleven stories in this collection, I’m hard pressed to pick a favourite. I enjoyed the muscular grief of Alex Leslie’s “The Person You Want to See”, and awkward perceptions of Mahak Jain’s “The Origin of Jaanvi.” I thought Carleigh Baker’s “Chins and Elbow” to be vivid while Paige Cooper’s “The Roar” might be described as uncanny, and though it seems unusual to find a ghost story that reaches this select crowd, Charlie Fiset’s “If I Ever See the Sun” definitely earns its place here. You’ll find your own favourite. Enjoy! ( )
