"Best Canadian Stories is now ten years old. When the series began in 1971, critics told us the story was dead. Now, ten years later, we have a host of imitators and Oberon is busy publishing fiction of all kinds. As markets develop, the forms become more sophisticated, the writers more experienced. The present collection contains familiar names like Mavis Gallant, Alice Munro and Joyce Carol Oates, along with three or four exciting newcomers. Each throws new light on the story form and what can be made of it." -- from back cover. Contents: Martin Avery's "Chinese Gold", Terence Byrnes's "Wintering Over", Barry Dempster's "A Large K in Kill", Mavis Gallant's "Speck's Idea" [Grant & Malcolm, Mavis Gallant : An Annotated Bibliography B136], David Helwig's "Aria da Capo", Alice Munro's "The Stone in the Field" [Thacker, Alice Munro : An Annotated Bibliography B73], Joyce Carol Oates's "The Reliquary", Leon Rooke's "Devious Strangers", Linda Svendsen's "Esso", and Guy Vanderhaege's "What I Learned from Caesar".
