One of my reservations about the O. Henry Prize Stories is that the twenty stories published each year seem . My other reservation is that somehow the O. Henry Prize franchise has managed to publicize the stories that are chosen for the volume as "winners" of a "prize.

That means for the past thirteen years, the "winners" reflect her taste and judgment and hers alone. There is no actual prize, only, as in BASS, republication in the yearly volume.

For the past three decades, William Abrahams has selected the O. Henry Award winners. Building on a tradition that spans over three quarters of a century. Henry Prize Stories 2019–continuing a century-long tradition of cutting-edge literary excellence–contains twenty prize-winning stories chosen from the thousands published in magazines over the previous year. The winning writers are an impressive mix of celebrated names and new, emerging voices.
