Book DescriptionWith an introduction by the jury, and now featuring authors’ comments on the inspiration for their stories.

This is the seventeenth edition of The Journey Prize Stories, Canada’s most popular annual fiction anthology. As well as receiving high praise every year, it is an important indicator of up-and-coming writers, presenting the most exciting new Canadian voices from coast to coast. Writers whose stories have appeared in the anthology — Yann Martel, André Alexis, David Bergen, Dennis Bock, Michael Crummey, Elizabeth Hay, Annabel Lyon, Lisa Moore, Eden Robinson, Timothy Taylor, Madeleine Thien, and M.G. Vassanji — have gone on to become finalists for or winners of some of Canada’s most prestigious literary awards.

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 (M&S, 1988). The winner will be announced in the spring of 2006 as part of The Writers’ Trust of Canada’s Great Literary Awards event.
