Summary

The Long List Anthology is designed to recognize the short works that were nominated for the 2015 Hugo Awards but did not make it into the top five short list for the final ballot. Thus, voted into the Hugo Award's long list of works - the top 15 works nominated for each category - were these nine short stories and three novelettes, now made available to a wider audience by award-winning narrators.

The short stories included in this collection are: "The Breath of War" by Aliette de Bodard; "When It Ends, He Catches Her" by Eugie Foster; "Toad Words" by T. Kingfisher; "Makeisha in Time" by Rachael K. Jones; "Covenant" by Elizabeth Bear; "The Truth About Owls" by Amal El-Mohtar; "A Kiss with Teeth" by Max Gladstone; "The Vaporization Enthalpy of a Peculiar Pakistani Family" by Usman T. Malik; and "This Chance Planet" by Elizabeth Bear

The novelettes in this collection are: We Are the Cloud by Sam J. Miller; The Magician and Laplace's Demon by Tom Crosshill; and Spring Festival: Happiness, Anger, Love, Sorrow, Joy by Xia Jia, translated by Ken Liu.

One of the worst anthology ever

I was able to listen to the first two minutes for each story, than I fast forwarded to the next.

There is a reason

There is a reason these stories didn't make it to the short list. And the collection itself has way too many questions. Just a couple of stories are worth the time, not to mention money. but!!! If you are into politically correct and culturally balanced mixes, you are in for a treat. You even get a Latino gay boy story.
