Our 2015 “Best of the Net” Nominees

We’ve submitted our 2015 nominations for the Sundress Publications anthology, Best of the Net. This year’s nominees are Benjamin Allocco’s “Spider and John Englehardt’s “This Is Great But You Don’t Need It.”

Benjamin Allocco lives and teaches in Upstate New York. His work has been published in The Fanzine, The Conium Review, Fiction Southeast, and Prick of the Spindle.

Follow him on Twitter @benjaminallocco.

John Englehardt has an MFA in fiction from the University of Arkansas. He won the 2014 Wabash Prize in Fiction, and his work has been published in Sycamore Review, The StrangerThe James Franco Review, The Monarch Review, and Monkeybicycle. Currently, he edits fiction for Pacifica Literary Review, and is a fellow at The Richard Hugo House in Seattle.

Naturally, this was a tough decision. There were many deserving pieces published on our site in the past year. In fact, we arrogantly think our whole damn website deserves anthologization or some sort of prize (we can provide a gold-medal-sized SASE upon request). Two other favorites that were heavily considered for nomination are Ingrid Jendrzejewski’s “The Box of Skinny Women and Jinny Koh’s “Fish Head.”
