The O. Henry Prize Stories for 2015 have been announced, all of which will appear in an anthology coming this September. Says O. Henry Prize editor Laura Furman, “Our jurors read the 20 O. Henry Prize Stories in a blind manuscript. Each story appears in the same type and format with no attribution of the magazine that published it or the author’s name. The jurors don’t consult the series editor or one another. Although the jurors write their essays without knowledge of the authors’ names, the names are inserted into the essay later for the sake of clarity.” This year’s jurors were Tessa Hadley, Kristen Iskandrian, and Michael Parker.
