Million Writers Award Notable Stories of 2007

The Million Writers Award Notable Stories of 2007 have now been released. The MWA award for best overall online publication goes to Blackbird for having seven of their stories selected as notable stories of the year. The MWA for best publisher of novella-length fiction goes to Jim Baen's Universe, while the award for best new online magazine or journal goes to Farrago's Wainscot (with runner ups being Wheelhouse Magazine and Coyote Wild).

I want to thank all the readers and editors who nominated stories and the preliminary judges who screened and selected this list of notable stories. I will begin reading these stories shortly and aim to release the top ten stories--and start the public vote for the best overall story--in late May.

BTW, I was too exhausted to count up all the stories on this list, but I swear it's even bigger than last year. If someone wants to do a breakdown and analysis of the notable stories, e-mail it to me and I'll post it here.
