    This morning, The Story Prize—which seeks to recognize the best short story collection published every year—announced its three 2024 finalists, chosen from a total of 113 submissions. “Even after reading more than 20,000 short story collections over the twenty years this award has existed, we’re still encountering short story collections unlike any we’ve read before. These three books expand the form and offer profound observations about the human condition,” said Larry Dark, Director of The Story Prize, in a press release.

    The winner will be announced on Tuesday, March 26, and will be awarded $20,000; each runner-up will receive $5,000.
