The Best American series has been the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction since 1915. Each volume's series editor selects notable works from hundreds of periodicals. A special guest editor, a leading writer in the field, then chooses the very best twenty or so pieces to publish. This unique system has made the Best American series the most respected -- and most popular -- of its kind.

Dennis Lehane ' Tom Perrotta ' Alice Munro ' Edward P. Jones ' Joy Williams ' Joyce Carol Oates ' Thomas McGuane ' Kelly Link ' Charles D'Ambrosio ' Cory Doctorow ' George Saunders ' and others

Michael Chabon, guest editor, is the best-selling author of The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Wonder Boys, A Model World, and, most recently, The Final Solution. His novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay won the Pulitzer Prize in 2000.
