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 fifteen works nominated for each category—were these nine short stories and three novelettes, now made available to a wider audience by award-winning narrators.
