"People ask us how we know that these stories -- the stories we've been publishing in the series we call Best Canadian Stories for 22 years now -- how we know that these are the best, the very best there are. One answer is the one given by David Helwig: 'it's what I said, each has to be a story no-one else knew, that was a secret from the beginning of the world until now.' John Moore gave another kind of answer in the Vancouver Sun: 'just read them. You'll know.' There are oldtimers here and youngsters too, each with his or her own story to tell. Take the man's advice. Read them. Find out for yourself." -- from dust jacket.
