This is the seventh annual edition of the Long List Anthology. Every year, supporting members of WorldCon nominate their favorite stories first published during the selected year to determine the top five in each category for the final Hugo Award ballot. This is an anthology collecting more of the stories from that nomination list to reach more readers.

The Long List Anthology volume 7 collects 24 science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories from that nomination list, totaling over 400 pages of fiction by writers from all corners of the world. From lonely haunted houses to invincible mechsuits, from body-lending gigwork to Fae ransom letters, from space pirate radio to interstellar disputes over art ownership. There is something here for everyone.
